IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA RODNEY R. URY, Plaintiff, 8:16CV260 vs. ORDER UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY, RAILCREW XPRESS, LLC, and LAUREN ANDERES, Defendants. The court’s scheduling order for this case states: “Motions to compel shall not be filed without first contacting the chambers of the undersigned magistrate judge to set a conference for discussing the parties’ dispute.” (Filing No. 20, at CM/ECF p. 2). The purpose of this requirement is to limit motion practice in favor of first requiring candid discussions between counsel before contacting the court, and absent a resolution between counsel alone, then exploring potential resolution through court-facilitated discussions. Unnecessary motion practice is both expensive and time-consuming, and it undermines the goal of securing “a just, speedy, and inexpensive determination” of this case. Fed.Civ.R.1. Plaintiff did not comply with the court’s order before filing a motion to compel. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to compel is denied. Dated this 16th day of June, 2017. BY THE COURT: s/ Cheryl R. Zwart United States Magistrate Judge
