Ury v. Union Pacific Railroad Company et al
ORDER that Plaintiff's motion to compel is denied. Ordered by Magistrate Judge Cheryl R. Zwart. (LAC)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
RODNEY R. URY,
UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD COMPANY,
RAILCREW XPRESS, LLC, and LAUREN
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
Plaintiff did not comply with the court’s order before filing a motion to compel.
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
