RITTER UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16 requires that the Court set a deadline for amendment of pleadings and joinder of parties. A party seeking to amend the pleadings after the above dates must both demonstrate good cause to amend the scheduling order as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16(b) and satisfy the requirements for amendment under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 15(a). See, e.g., Gorsuch Ltd., B.C. v. Wells Fargo Nat. Bank Ass’n, 771 F.3d 1230, 1242 (10th Cir. 2014). 1 This deadline applies to motions related to the admissibility of experts or expert testimony that may require Daubert hearing, but otherwise does not apply to motions in limine. The presiding judge will set a deadline for the submission of motions in limine and other trial-related deadlines in a separate order. 2 2
