UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Case No. 2:23-cv-00426-APG-DJA
Simon Property Group Limited Partnership
d/b/a The Shops at Crystals; Schindler Elevator
Before the Court is the parties’ stipulated discovery plan and scheduling order. (ECF No.
14). The parties seek special scheduling review because they request an extended discovery
period. However, because the parties’ stipulation contains certain deficiencies, the Court denies it
without prejudice and will require the parties to submit an amended discovery plan consistent
with this order.
First, the parties do not provide the calendar date from which they are calculating their
discovery period. This is necessary for the Court to determine the length—and propriety—of the
extended discovery period. And Local Rule 26-1(b)(1) requires that the parties “state the date the
first defendant answered or otherwise appeared, the number of days required for discovery
measured from that date, and the calendar date on which discovery will close.” This is
particularly true here where the parties appear to be requesting a discovery period more than
double the typical 180-day discovery period.
Second, to the extent the parties are requesting a discovery period double that of the
typical 180-day discovery period, their explanation regarding why that amount of time is
necessary is insufficient. While the parties explain that the case will include multiple topics and

depositions of individuals in multiple states, this is typical of most litigation. Without more, this
explanation does not justify such an extended discovery period.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the parties’ stipulated discovery plan (ECF No.
14) is denied without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the parties shall file an amended stipulated discovery
plan in accordance with this order on or before May 26, 2023.
