Before the Court is the motion (D.E. 25) by defendants Enviva, LP,
Enviva Pellets Ahoskie, LLC, Enviva. Pellets Northampton, LLC, Enviva
Pellets Southampton, LLC, John Keppler, Norb Hintz, and Enviva Holdings, LP
(collectively, "Defendants") to stay discovery pending resolution of their Motion to
Dismiss for lack of personal jurisdiction, insufficiency of process, and
insufficiency of service of process (D.E. 14) and their Motion to Dismiss Pursuant
to Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure (D.E. 17).
contend that resolution of one or more of these motions may obviate discovery and
that deferral of discovery until after such resolution would preserve the
Court's and the parties' time and other resources.
Plaintiff James A. Kelley is
willing to extend the time for the discovery scheduling conference, but he objects
to staying discovery. (D.E. 25, Ex. A)
The Court finds that Defendants have shown good cause for the stay
The motion to stay is therefore ALLOWED, and all discovery in this
case, including the convening of a Fed. R. Civ. P. Rule 26(f) conference and filing
of a discovery plan, is STAYED pending entry of orders disposing of the motions
This the _i)_day of August, 2014.
