IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
For the Eastern District of North Carolina
File No.: 5:13-CV-110-F
THE UNTIED STATES OF AMERICA,
) Order Staying Discovery and Directing Entry
of a New Case Management Order
Plaintiff has moved the Court for entry of an order staying discovery in this case for a
period of 90 days and directing the parties to submit a revised discovery plan for entry of a new
case scheduling order in this case within 30 days thereafter based upon the catastrophic Joss of
the plaintiff's counsel's computer system and substantially all of the documents and data of or
related to the plaintiff's case which has impaired the plaintiff's case and through no fault ofthe
plaintiff herself, the plaintiff has been unable to produce the disclosures, documents, and other
discovery responses necessary in this case, and the plaintiff cannot comply with the discovery
plan and the case management order present in this case.
For valid reasons, the Plaintiff's motion seeking relief from the operation ofthe present
case management order and the entry of an order staying discovery in this case for a period of 90
days from the date of this order and directing the parties to submit a revised discovery plan to the
court for entry of a new case scheduling order in this case within 30 days afterward is necessary
and warranted under these circumstances, and the plaintiff's counsel must act as expeditiously as
possible to acquire and assemble the documents and materials necessary to proceed, and upon
submission of the parties' proposed revised discovery plan, the Court will at that time enter a
case management order to promote justice and the expeditious disposition of this case.
It is SO ORDERED.
