UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
WILLIAM McKNIGHT, et al.,
Case No. 2:16-cv-02643-APG-PAL
NOBU HOSPITALITY GROUP, LLC,
(Mot. Ext. Time – ECF No. 35;
Mot. Compel – ECF No. 39)
This matter is before the court on Plaintiffs’ Motion to Extend Time re: Discovery
Deadlines (ECF No. 35) and Motion to Compel Discovery (ECF No. 39). These Motions are
referred to the undersigned pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A) and LR IB 1-3 of the Local Rules
On November 9, 2017, the court held a hearing on Plaintiffs’ Motions. Present was Yianna
Reizakis for Plaintiffs and James Olson and Thomas Dillard for Defendant. The court has
considered the Motions, Defendant’s Responses (ECF Nos. 37, 40), Plaintiffs’ Replies (ECF
Nos. 38, 45), and the arguments of counsel at the hearing. Both sides agree that further discovery
should be stayed until the district judge decides defendant’s pending motion to reconsider which
addresses whether plaintiffs should be permitted to amend their complaint to name the
owner/operator of the hotel room where the incident giving rise to the complaint occurred, as the
outcome may be dispostive of plaintiffs’ lawsuit.
IT IS ORDERED:
1. Plaintiffs’ Motion to Extend Time re: Discovery Deadlines (ECF No. 35) and Motion
to Compel Discovery (ECF No. 39) are DENIED without prejudice.
2. Discovery in this case is STAYED pending decision on the Objections or Motion to
Reconsider under submission to the district judge (ECF No. 17).
3. The parties shall file a joint status report within 14 days of the district judge of decision
on the Objection (ECF No. 16) indicating their respecting positions on any unresolved
discovery disputes and proposed plan for completing discovery and preparing the case
for dispositive motions and trial.
Dated this 14th day of November, 2017.
