Defendants collectively may take fifteen (15) fact witness depositions.

deadlines of this order shall be sought by motion.
d. Discovery Motions. Discovery motions shall be filed not later than Monday,

available to testify at the trial, shall be made a part of the pretrial order. Failure to list

date of the notice as reinstating the response/reply time that remained as of the date the
mediation reference order was filed.
