IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
SUN LIFE ASSURANCE COMPANY
ORDER SETTING BRIEFING SCHEDULE
THIS MATTER comes before the Court following a telephonic Rule 16 scheduling
conference held on December 5, 2017. The Court, having reviewed the record and conferred
with the parties, finds that the claims set forth in Plaintiff’s complaint are governed by the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (“ERISA”).
At the hearing, the parties expressed their intent to attempt to resolve this ERISA action
through private negotiations. As discussed on the record, the Court determines that a briefing
schedule should be set to ensure that the case moves forward in the event that the parties’
negotiations are unsuccessful.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff’s brief-in-chief is due on or before March 16, 2018.
2. Defendant’s response is due on or before April 9, 2018.
3. Plaintiff’s reply, if any, is due on or before April 24, 2018.
