Docket No. 13. Plaintiff filed a response in opposition, and Defendants filed a reply. 18 Docket Nos. 15, 17. The motion is properly decided without a hearing. See Local Rule 78-1. Although 19 the circumstances leave much to be desired, good cause exists for a 60-day extension to the deadlines 20 that had not expired prior to the filing of the motion.1 Accordingly, the motion is GRANTED in part 21 and DENIED in part, and deadlines are SET as follows: 22 • Initial Experts: April 23, 2018; 23 • Interim status report: April 23, 2018; 24 • Rebuttal experts: May 23, 2018; 25 • Discovery cutoff: June 22, 2018; 26 1 27 28 The deadline to amend the pleadings expired a month before the motion was filed and, therefore, the request to reopen that deadline must be supported by both good cause and excusable neglect. See, e.g., Local Rule 26-4; Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(b)(1)(B). Insufficient justification exists to reopen that deadline. 1 • Dispositive motions: July 23, 2018; 2 • Joint proposed pretrial order: August 22, 2018, or 30 days after dispositive motions are resolved.2 3 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 DATED: March 9, 2018 6 ______________________________________ NANCY J.
