UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
COMPANY, et al.,
Case No. 2:16-cv-00251-JCM-PAL
(Mot. Strike – ECF No. 39)
(Mot for Hearing – ECF No. 40)
Before the court is Defendant United Financial Casualty Company dba Progressive
Insurance Company’s Motion to Strike (in Part) Dr. Gross’s Neurosurgical Supplemental Report
Medical Life Care Plan – Dated January 17, 2017 (ECF No. 39), and Motion for Hearing Date of
February 7, 2017, 9:00 a.m. (ECF No. 40). Both motions were filed January 30, 2017.
The court conducted a hearing on February 7, 2017, on Defendant United Financial
Casualty Company’s Motions to Strike (ECF Nos. 30, 31). The third motion to strike is related to
the first two and counsel requested that all three motions be heard at the same time, before the
deadline for filing a response to the third motion expired. At the hearing the court granted the fully
briefed motions to strike finding that the supplemental expert report of Dr. Gross and supplemental
designation of Dr. Clauretie as an expert were filed months after the deadline for disclosing expert
reports and were therefore untimely, and that Plaintiff had not shown that the late disclosures were
substantially justified or harmless. The third motion to strike involves yet another untimely expert
disclosure from Dr. Gross dated January 17, 2017, more than 4 months after the deadline for
disclosing expert reports.
The court has more than 100 pending motions in more than 600 cases on the docket, and
lacks the time or resources to drop everything to order expedited briefing and be prepared for yet
another motion within a week of filing while other litigants are waiting for decisions on their
Having reviewed and considered the matter,
IT IS ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall have until February 14, 2017 to file a response to Defendant United
Financial Casualty Company dba Progressive Insurance Company’s Motion to Strike
(in Part) Dr. Gross’s Neurosurgical Supplemental Report Medical Life Care Plan (ECF
2. United Financial Casualty Company’s Motion for Hearing Date of February 7, 2017,
9:00 a.m. (ECF No. 40) is DENIED. The court will decide the motion on the parties’
papers without a further hearing.
DATED this 8th day of February, 2017.
