Discovery must be completed on or before the termination of the discovery deadline. A written discovery request must be propounded by a date so that the response to that request shall be due on or before the discovery deadline. The parties are further reminded that the cutoff for motions related to discovery does not relieve the party of the 21-day time period under Local Rule 26.6 to challenge a party’s objections to answering discovery. The parties are encouraged Scheduling Order Page 2 of 3 to review Federal Rule of Procedure 26(a)(2) to ensure they properly disclose all testifying witnesses, not just those for whom a report is required. ______________________________ KEVIN R.
