1 2 3 4 5 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 6 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 7 8 9 Plaintiff(s), 10 v. 11 NEVADA CVS PHARMACY, LLC, et al., Order [Docket No. 42] 12 13 Case No. 2:23-cv-01108-RFB-NJK ROSA RIOS, et al., Defendant(s). Pending before the Court is a stipulation to extend deadlines that was filed on July 3, 2024. 14 Docket No. 42. The stipulation is predicated on the fact that new counsel substituted into the case 15 on July 1, 2024. See id. at 2; see also Docket No. 40. The stipulation fails to explain how this 16 request comports with the local rules, which require incoming counsel to ask for an extension (if 17 one is necessary) concurrently with their request to substitute into the case. See Local Rules IA 18 11-6(c), (e).1 Incoming counsel are cautioned moving forward that they must comply with these 19 rules when substituting into a case. As a one-time courtesy, in light of the joint nature of the 20 request, and in consideration of some of the other reasoning provided, however, the Court will 21 allow the extension sought. Given the circumstances, no further extensions will be granted. See 22 also Docket No. 26 at 7; Docket No. 22 at 2. 23 With these caveats, the stipulation to extend is GRANTED. Deadlines are RESET as 24 follows: 25 26  Amend pleadings/ add parties: closed 1 The reason behind this requirement is simple: substitution of counsel is ordinarily not 27 allowed when it will cause delay, Local Rule IA 11-6(e), so the Court needs to know upfront if incoming counsel will be seeking an extension and whether sufficient justification exists to depart 28 from the standard course. 1 1  Initial experts: September 2, 2024 2  Rebuttal experts: October 2, 2024 3  Discovery cutoff: November 1, 2024 4  Dispositive motions: December 2, 2024 5  Joint proposed pretrial order: January 2, 2025, or 30 days after resolution of dispositive 6 motions 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 Dated: July 8, 2024 9 ______________________________ Nancy J.
