REASONS WHY DISCOVERY NOT COMPLETED WITHIN TIME SET BY DISCOVERY PLAN A motion to extend deadlines articulated in the court’s scheduling order must be supported by a showing of good cause. See Local Rule 26-3; see also Johnson v. Mammoth Recreations, Inc., 975 F.2d 604, 608-09 (9th Cir. 1992). Good cause to extend a deadline exists if it cannot reasonably be met despite the diligence of the party seeking extension. Johnson, 975 F.2d at 609. In the instant matter, all parties have diligently attempted to comply with the Court’s scheduling order – however, the parties have determined they will be unable to obtain unable to obtain and produce key evidence related to the incident and alleged damages, which then deprives the parties and their respective experts of access to all evidence to formulate their opinions, complete their evaluations and prepare their reports accordingly, as well as impairs counsels’ ability to reach a proper determination as to further discovery needed. On June 25, 2024, the parties entered a stipulation to extend the discovery deadlines primarily based on the need for additional time to complete written discovery, which is outstanding due to Preventive Measures needing additional time to locate certain documents; and to complete remaining depositions of parties and witnesses. In addition, new counsel recently associated in for Preventive -5- Case 2:23-cv-00070-CDS-DJA Document 43 Filed 07/02/24 Page 6 of 8 1 Measures, and has requested additional time to review the file to assist with moving discovery along. The 2 remaining depositions and outstanding written discovery will be critical to the claims and defenses in the 3 instant action and will have a direct impact on the opinions of the parties’ retained experts. 4 Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that the discovery deadlines in this matter be extended 5 by an additional sixty (60) days. The requested extension will ensure all parties have a full and fair 6 opportunity to litigate the claims and defenses on the merits. Therefore, and as set forth below, due 7 diligence and good cause can be shown to allow the Court, in its discretion, to extend the remaining 8 deadlines as requested. 9 IV.
