BGC Partners, Inc. et al v. Avison Young (Canada), Inc. et al
ORDER denying 87 Proposed Discovery Plan and Scheduling Order. Signed by Magistrate Judge George Foley, Jr on 7/7/2017. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - JM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
BGC PARTNERS INC., et al.,
AVISON YOUNG, INC., et al.,
Case No. 2:15-cv-00531-RFB-GWF
This matter is before the Court on the parties’ Discovery Plan and Scheduling Order (ECF No.
87), filed on June 23, 2017.
Discovery plans requesting longer than 180 days from the date the first defendant answers or
appears require special scheduling review. LR 26-1(a) is explicit:
If longer deadlines are proposed, the plan must state on its face
“SPECIAL SCHEDULING REVIEW REQUESTED.” Plans requesting
special scheduling review must include, in addition to the information
required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f) and LR 26-1(b), a statement of the
reasons why longer or different time periods should apply to the case ...
The parties’ discovery plan requests a 488-day discovery period but does not give an adequate
explanation for the longer period as required by LR 26-1(a). Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the parties’ Discovery Plan and Scheduling Order (ECF
No. 87) is denied without prejudice.
DATED this 7th day of July, 2017.
GEORGE FOLEY, JR.
United States Magistrate Judge
