    1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 6 *** 7 ABRAHAM LUBLIN, Case No. 2:17-cv-0021-GMN-PAL 8 9 10 11 Plaintiff, v. ORDER (Stip Ext Time – ECF No. 42) AMERICAN AUTOMOBILE ASSOCIATION OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, NEVADA & UTAH, Defendant. 12 13 Before the court is the parties’ Stipulation and Order to Extend Discovery Deadlines (First 14 Request) (ECF No. 42). Having reviewed and considered the matter, the court is not satisfied that 15 the parties have been sufficiently diligent in attempting to comply with the discovery plan and 16 scheduling order deadlines, or that the parties have shown good cause for a 90-day extension. 17 Defendant’s written discovery requests were first served December 22, 2017 despite an April 2. 18 2018 discovery cutoff. It appears that the only discovery the plaintiff has engaged in is to serve 19 initial disclosures. The remaining discovery described includes the need for plaintiff to issue 20 written discovery. Defendant needs to receive response from third party subpoena for medical 21 records and “notice depositions and take depositions and conduct additional third-party 22 discovery.” Neither side says how many depositions need to be noticed, or provides the identities 23 of the deponents. 24 Uber these circumstances, the court finds the parties have not shown good cause for a 90- 25 day extension or due diligence in attempting to complete discovery within the time allowed by the 26 discovery plan and scheduling order. The court will grant a 30-day extension, and absent a strong 27 showing of good cause and due diligence, i.e., a showing that the parties could not complete 28 discovery within the extended time allowed, no further extensions will be granted. 1     1 IT IS ORDERED that the parties’ Stipulation and Order to Extend Discovery Deadlines 2 (First Request) (ECF No. 42) is DENIED. A 30-day extension is granted and the following 3 deadlines shall apply: 4 1. Last date to complete discovery: May 2, 2018 5 2. Last date to file dispositive motions: June 1, 2018 6 3. Last date to file joint pretrial order: July 2, 2018. In the event dispositive motions 7 are filed, the date for filing the joint pretrial order shall be suspended until 30 days 8 after a decision of the dispositive motions. 9 4. The disclosures required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(a)(3), and any objections thereto, 10 shall be included in the pretrial order. 11 5. 12 shall, in addition to satisfying the requirements of LR 6-1, be supported by a showing of 13 good cause for the extension. Absent a strong showing of good cause and that the parties 14 could not complete discovery within the extended time allowed, no further extensions will 15 be granted. 16 DATED this 12th day of March, 2018. Applications to extend any dates set by this discovery plan and scheduling order 17 18 PEGGY A. LEEN UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
