THE COURT WILL DEFER RULING ON DEFENDANT'S MOTION FOR SANCTIONS (DOC. NO. 34) PENDING THE PARTIES' JOINT REPORT.

COUNSEL MAY FILE OBJECTIONS EXPLAINING WHY THE PARTIES' BRIEFS SHOULD REMAIN UNDER SEAL NO LATER THAN 9/8/2017. SIGNED BY HONORABLE CYNTHIA M.

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF PENNSYLVANIA
CIVIL ACTION NO. 16-2881
AND NOW, this 23rd day of August 2017, upon consideration of Plaintiff’s Motion for
Leave to File Second Amended Complaint (Doc. No. 29), the briefing in support thereof, and the
response thereto, it is hereby ORDERED that for the reasons stated in the accompanying
1. Plaintiff’s Motion is DENIED.
2. The parties shall file a joint status report no later than September 1, 2017. The report
shall include: (1) a statement regarding whether Plaintiff intends to pursue its breach-of-contract
and promissory estoppel claims as set forth in the amended complaint; (2) a proposed schedule
for the completion of discovery and dispositive motions; and (3) a statement regarding the
prospects for settlement or alternative dispute resolution, including whether the parties are
willing to engage in settlement discussions with a Magistrate Judge.
3. The Court will defer ruling on Defendant’s Motion for Sanctions (Doc. No. 34) pending
the parties’ joint report.
4. Because it appears that the Court’s prior Orders allowing the parties to file their briefs
under seal no longer serve any purpose, the Court intends to unseal the parties’ filings. Counsel
may file objections explaining why the parties’ briefs should remain under seal no later than
September 8, 2017.
It is so ORDERED.
BY THE COURT:
