Med Flight Air Ambulance, Inc. v. MGM Resorts International et al
ORDER FINDING GOOD CAUSE TO DELAY ENTRY OF RULE 16 SCHEDULING ORDER by Magistrate Judge Kevin R. Sweazea. (cbf)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
MED FLIGHT AIR AMBULANCE, INC.,
MGM RESORTS INTERNATIONAL;
and UMR, INC.,
ORDER FINDING GOOD CAUSE TO DELAY ENTRY OF
RULE 16 SCHEDULING ORDER
THIS MATTER comes before the Court following a telephonic status conference held
on November 14, 2017. During the conference, the parties and the Court discussed the Court’s
obligation to enter a scheduling order under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16 or find good
cause to delay entry of such an order. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 16(b)(2) (requiring the Court to “issue
the scheduling order as soon as is practicable, but unless the judge finds good cause for delay,
the judge must issue it within the earlier of 90 days after any defendant has been served with the
complaint or 60 days after any defendant has appeared”). After hearing from the parties and in
light of the pending motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, the Court found good
cause to delay entering a scheduling order.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that good cause exists to delay entering a Rule 16
scheduling order for the reasons stated on the record. The Court shall not issue a scheduling
order until resolution of the pending motion to dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction.
KEVIN R. SWEAZEA
