UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:17-cv-00034-APG-VCF
BEST BUY CO., INC,
ORDER (1) GRANTING MOTION FOR
LEAVE TO FILE SUR-REPLY, (2)
DIRECTING RESPONSE, AND (3)
(ECF Nos. 31, 32)
I previously directed plaintiff Barbie Morgan to file a supplemental opposition regarding
the qualifications of her expert, Dr. Byers. ECF No. 28. Morgan filed her response on November
28, 2017. ECF No. 30. Defendant Best Buy Co., Inc. moves for leave to file a sur-reply, arguing
that Dr. Byers admitted at her deposition that she is not opining on causation and would be a
rebuttal expert. Best Buy thus contends Morgan has no medical expert to testify on causation, so
Best Buy is entitled to summary judgment. Best Buy also filed a separate summary judgment
motion given the December 3, 2017 dispositive motion deadline. See ECF No. 14. To save the
parties’ resources, I am granting Best Buy’s motion for leave to file a sur-reply, suspending the
summary judgment briefing, and directing Morgan to respond to Best Buy’s sur-reply.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that defendant Best Buy Co. Inc.’s motion for leave to
file a sur-reply (ECF No. 31) is GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that briefing on defendant Best Buy Co. Inc.’s motion for
summary judgment (ECF No. 32) is suspended pending further order of the court.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff Barbie Morgan has until December 15, 2017 to
file a response to Best Buy’s sur-reply.
DATED this 4th day of December, 2017.
ANDREW P. GORDON
