That order grants the parties’ request to extend, inter 18 alia, an expert discovery deadline that has already past. The Court grants that request as complying 19 with the standards outlined in the prior scheduling order for seeking extensions. See Docket No. 23 20 at 3. The Court issues this separate order setting the standards for requested extensions filed in this 21 case in the future. In particular, the standard outlined in Docket No. 23 is inconsistent with Local 22 Rule 26-4. Accordingly, any previous orders entered in this case inconsistent with the standards 23 enunciated herein, are hereby VACATED to the extent they are inconsistent. The standards 24 enunciated below govern all future requests for extension filed in this matter. 25 All future requests for extensions must strictly comply with the currently-operative version 26 of Local Rule 26-4. “All motions or stipulations to extend a deadline set forth in a discovery plan 27 shall be received no later than twenty-one (21) days before expiration of the subject deadline.” 28 Local Rule 26-4 (emphasis added). Any motion or stipulation filed before 21 days prior to the 1 expiration of the subject deadline must be supported by a showing of good cause. Id. Any motion 2 or stipulation filed less than 21 days prior to the expiration of the subject deadline (or after the 3 subject deadline has expired) must be supported by a showing of excusable neglect. Id. 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 DATED: May 9, 2013 6 7 8 ______________________________________ NANCY J. KOPPE United States Magistrate Judge 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
