While treating medical and mental health care providers are generally not

treatment documentation. As to each such expert, any opinions which are not stated
within that expert’s treatment records and reports must be separately and timely
For the defendant(s):

judgment is June 28, 2021.
The deadline for filing motions to exclude testimony on Daubert and related

recent development of circumstances, unanticipated prior to the filing of the
motion, which require that additional time be allowed.
Dated this 31st day of March, 2021.
