This is the second request for an extension of case deadlines. 21 This stipulation is being submitted 15 days prior to the next discovery deadline. 22 A. Discovery Completed: 23 1. The parties have exchanged Rule 26(a) disclosures and supplemented their 24 disclosures. 25 2. Defendant continues to send out subpoenas and receive medical records from 26 Plaintiff’s medical providers. 27 3. Plaintiff’ was deposed on August 25, 2022. 28 4. Special Agent Jae Carlton Beasley was deposed on October 18, 2022. Case 2:22-cv-00169-APG-BNW Document 43 42 Filed 11/16/22 11/15/22 Page 2 of 3 1 5. Plaintiff served written discovery on October 17, 2022. 2 6. The investigating officer’s deposition is scheduled for November 18, 2022. 3 B. Discovery Remaining: 4 5 1. The parties may serve additional written discovery, third-party subpoenas, and plan to conduct depositions of Plaintiff’s treating medical providers and others. 6 2. The parties will continue to supplement their initial disclosures. 7 3. In addition, the parties will designate and depose retained and non-retained 8 medical experts, if applicable. 9 4. Depositions of witnesses and treating physicians. 10 5. Continued production of additional medical records and billing. 11 C. Need for Extension of Discovery Plan: 12 The current 60-day extension is being sought for the following reasons. First, the 13 United States has experienced delays in obtaining and reviewing medical records and hiring 14 experts. Further, the United States Attorney’s Office recently had another experienced 15 AUSA leave the office. This required that AUSA’s assigned cases to be reassigned to the few 16 remaining AUSAs that handle civil cases. Those case reassignments required the remaining 17 AUSAs, including AUSA Pearson, to get up to speed with new cases and meet additional 18 and unforeseen case deadlines in other cases. Finally, scheduling the deposition of the 19 investigating officer had to be set and rescheduled due to his availability. Therefore, an 20 extension will provide the parties the necessary time to complete discovery in this case. 21 Respective counsel for the parties have a good working relationship and have 22 discussed this request and are in agreement that an additional 60-days is appropriate. This 23 additional time will also allow the parties sufficient time to continue to conduct discovery. 24 D. 25 26 Proposed New Discovery Schedule: 1. Discovery Cutoff Date: Discovery cutoff is currently scheduled for January 30, 2023, and will be extended to March 31, 2023. 27 28 2 Case 2:22-cv-00169-APG-BNW Document 43 42 Filed 11/16/22 11/15/22 Page 3 of 3 1 2.
