UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Mark A. St. Amand,
Case No. 2:20-cv-01666-JCM-DJA
James River Insurance Company; et al.,
Before the Court is a joint motion to stay discovery deadlines pending the outcome of a
mediation. (ECF No. 47). The Court finds that a stay of discovery is appropriate in this case.
See Kor Media Group, LLC v. Green, 294 F.R.D. 579, 581 (D. Nev. 2013) (discussing a stay of
discovery pending a dispositive motion and explaining that, absent extraordinary circumstances,
litigation should not be delayed simply because a non-frivolous motion has been filed). Here,
extraordinary circumstances are present. The parties do not seek to stay discovery pending a
dispositive motion but seek to stay discovery deadlines pending a mediation which could resolve
or narrow the issues. A stay would thus accomplish the objectives of Rule 1: a just, speedy, and
inexpensive determination of the action. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 1.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the stipulation to stay discovery (ECF No. 47) is
DATED: September 15, 2022
