x 1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 SEPT 19, 2022 Case No.: 3:21-cv-00468-MMD-CSD JUAN CHAVEZ, 4 Plaintiff, 5 v. ORDER SETTING MANDATORY TELEPHONIC CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE 6 D. DRUMMONDS, et al., 7 Defendants. 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 The court has now screened Plaintiff’s complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(a) and ordered the case to proceed. In order to ensure the just, speedy, and cost-effective resolution of this action, the court orders the parties to attend a mandatory telephonic case management conference as described more fully below. No discovery may proceed until the court enters a full scheduling order. I. Mandatory Telephonic Case Management Conference A mandatory telephonic case management conference will be held on WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 12, 2022, at 9:00 A.M. To join the conference, each party is directed to call the toll-free telephone number 1-888-557-8511; Access Code: 3599743; Security Code: 101222, approximately five (5) minutes prior to the hearing. Defense counsel shall make the necessary arrangements for the Plaintiff’s telephonic appearance at this conference and shall provide the Courtroom Deputy, Karen Walker, at karen_Walker@nvd.uscourts.gov with the telephone number at which the plaintiff can be reached for this mandatory telephonic case management conference. The parties should be available for one-half hour, although the case management conference will likely take less time. 1 2 3 II. Case Management Report In advance of the mandatory case management conference, each party shall file a case 4 management report no later than WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2022. 5 The case management report must not exceed 5 pages and must not include any attached 6 exhibits. Each party’s case management report must include the following information in 7 separately numbered paragraphs as designated below: 8 1) A brief statement of the nature of the case, including a brief description of the claims 9 and defenses; 10 2) The location of potentially relevant documents; 11 3) The discovery each party intends to take, if any; 12 4) Any options or methods for the streamlining and/or bifurcation of discovery or the 13 litigation; 14 5) Whether the defense of failure to exhaust administrative remedies may apply to any 15 claim(s) and whether that defense, if successful, would be dispositive of the entire case or certain 16 claims in the litigation. If a defense of failure to exhaust administrative remedies will be raised, 17 address whether any discovery needs to be conducted as to that defense only, and if so, what 18 discovery is required, and provide an estimate of how long the parties need to complete this 19 discovery; 20 6) Whether the party intends to use expert witnesses; 21 7) Whether the party intends to proceed by consent before the magistrate judge. 22 Presently, when a civil trial is set before the district judges, any criminal trial set that conflicts 23 with the civil trial will take priority, even if the civil trial was set first. Continuances of civil 2 1 trials under these circumstances may no longer be entertained, absent good cause, but the civil 2 trial may instead trail from day to day or week to week until the completion of either the criminal 3 case or an older civil case. The parties are advised that they are free to withhold consent or 4 decline magistrate jurisdiction without adverse substantive consequences; and 5 8) Any immediate or ongoing issues or requests that require the court’s immediate 6 attention or that should be brought to the court’s attention. 7 8 III. Discovery Plan and Scheduling Order Following the case management conference, the court will issue a discovery plan and 9 scheduling order (DPSO). Once issued, the dates in the DPSO are firm and no extension will be 10 given without permission from the court based on a showing of good cause. 11 IT IS SO ORDERED. 12 Dated: September 19, 2022 13 _________________________________ Craig S. Denney United States Magistrate Judge 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 3
