Defendants. 1 Case 2:16-cv-01413-JAD-PAL Document 61 Filed 05/03/17 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) and Amended Scheduling Order (Docket No. 58) by extending the dates for fact and expert discovery and for 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 second 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. The discovery responses and deposition testimony are necessary for the parties’ respective expert reports, but will not be available in time for the experts to adequately incorporate them into their reports. 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 fact and 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 as set forth below: 1. Fact Discovery Deadline: July 17, 2017. 2. Plaintiff’s expert report(s) due on July 17, 2017. 3. Defendants’ expert report(s) due on August 16, 2017. 4. Discovery deadline for expert depositions on September 29, 2017. 5. Dispositive motion deadline on November 13, 2017. 2 Case 2:16-cv-01413-JAD-PAL Document 61 Filed 05/03/17 Page 3 of 4 IT IS SO STIPULATED. Dated: May 2, 2017 s/Daniel J. Wadley Amy J.
