Defendants. 1 Case 2:16-cv-01413-JAD-PAL Document 51 Filed 02/13/17 Page 2 of 4 Plaintiff, Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”), hereby moves the Court to amend the previously entered Scheduling Order (Docket No. 40) by extending the dates for expert discovery and dispositive motions. Defendants Hemp, Inc., Bruce J. Perlowin, Barry K. Epling, Jed M. Perlowin, Ferris Holding, Inc., Hobbes Equities, Inc., Diversified Investments, LLC, and Quantum Economic Protocols, LLC, through their respective counsel, have all stipulated to the Plaintiff’s motion. This is the first stipulation for a motion to amend the scheduling order. The reasons for this Motion are as follows. The parties are actively engaged in discovery, including the exchange of written discovery and the taking of numerous depositions. Most of these depositions will be taken either immediately preceding or after the current March 17, 2017 and April 17, 2017 deadlines for expert reports from the Plaintiff and the Defendants, respectively. Were the parties to maintain the current schedule for expert discovery, it would necessitate supplemental reports from experts and cause the parties to incur additional time and expense. Moving the expert deadlines would also necessitate allowing time for expert depositions after the exchange of expert reports as well as moving the deadline for the filing of dispositive motions so that the parties may have the benefit of completing expert discovery before the dispositive motion deadline. Therefore, the parties have stipulated to move the following deadlines by 90 days as set forth below: 1. Plaintiff’s expert report(s) due on May 16, 2017. 2. Defendants’ expert report(s) due on June 15, 2017. 3. Discovery deadline for expert depositions on July 15, 2017. 4. Dispositive motion deadline on September 13, 2017. 2 Case 2:16-cv-01413-JAD-PAL Document 51 Filed 02/13/17 Page 3 of 4 IT IS SO STIPULATED. Dated: February 13, 2017 s/Amy J. Oliver Amy J.
