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.
II. Case Management Report
In advance of the mandatory case management conference, each party shall file a case
3 management report no later than MONDAY, DECEMBER 11, 2023.
The case management report must not exceed 5 pages and must not include any attached
5 exhibits. Each party’s case management report must include the following information in
6 separately numbered paragraphs as designated below:
1) A brief statement of the nature of the case, including a brief description of the claims
8 and defenses;
2) The location of potentially relevant documents;
3) The discovery each party intends to take, if any;
4) Any options or methods for the streamlining and/or bifurcation of discovery or the
5) Whether the defense of failure to exhaust administrative remedies may apply to any
14 claim(s) and whether that defense, if successful, would be dispositive of the entire case or certain
15 claims in the litigation. If a defense of failure to exhaust administrative remedies will be raised,
16 address whether any discovery needs to be conducted as to that defense only, and if so, what
17 discovery is required, and provide an estimate of how long the parties need to complete this
6) Whether the party intends to use expert witnesses;
7) Whether the party intends to proceed by consent before the magistrate judge.
21 Presently, when a civil trial is set before the district judges, any criminal trial set that conflicts
22 with the civil trial will take priority, even if the civil trial was set first. Continuances of civil
23 trials under these circumstances may no longer be entertained, absent good cause, but the civil
1 trial may instead trail from day to day or week to week until the completion of either the criminal
2 case or an older civil case. The parties are advised that they are free to withhold consent or
3 decline magistrate jurisdiction without adverse substantive consequences; and
8) Any immediate or ongoing issues or requests that require the court’s immediate
5 attention or that should be brought to the court’s attention.
III. Discovery Plan and Scheduling Order
Following the case management conference, the court will issue a discovery plan and
8 scheduling order (DPSO). Once issued, the dates in the DPSO are firm and no extension will be
9 given without permission from the court based on a showing of good cause.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
