Motions for Summary Judgment (fully briefed)
Additional Deadlines Agreed to by the Parties
‟Fully briefed” means that the motion, the brief in support of the motion, and the
opposing party’s response brief are filed with the court by the deadline.
3. Representation at Rule 26(f) Conference. Each party to the case must
be represented at the Rule 26(f) conference by at least one person with authority to
enter into stipulations.
4. Stipulation to Foundation and Authenticity. Pursuant to Rule
16(c)(3), the parties shall either:
(a) enter into the following stipulation:
The parties stipulate as to foundation and authenticity for all written
documents produced in pre-trial disclosure and during the course of
discovery. However, if receiving counsel objects to either the
foundation or the authenticity of a particular document, then receiving
counsel must make specific objection to producing counsel in writing
within a reasonable time after receiving the document. A
‟reasonable” time means that producing counsel has sufficient time to
lay the foundation or establish authenticity through depositions or
other discovery. If the producing party objects to a document’s
foundation or authenticity, the producing party shall so state, in
writing, at the time of production, in sufficient time for receiving
counsel to lay the foundation or establish authenticity through
depositions or other discovery. All other objections are reserved.
(b) state why a stipulation to authenticity and foundation is not appropriate
for the case.
5. Administrative Record: If an administrative record is involved, it must
be filed in an indexed and searchable electronic format. The government shall
provide Plaintiff with the administrative record on or before the administrative
record filing deadline set out in ¶ 3, supra.
