Magistrate: Judge Nuffer
Approximately two months ago, on August 22, 2011, Plaintiff provided to Defendants’
counsel a draft Attorneys’ Planning Meeting Report. The parties were unable to agree on
discovery deadlines, and more particularly, counsel for Peter Jarowey has stated that “Jarowey
will not participate in discovery absent a Court order directing him to do so.” Because of the
forgoing and the fact that this case was originally filed on March 25, 2011 and there is still not a
discovery schedule, Plaintiff respectfully requests the Court to enter the following order to
govern the discovery time-line in this case.
The nature of the claims and affirmative defenses are:
Plaintiff: Plaintiff asserts claims of (1) Breach of Contract; (2) Breach of
Guaranty; (3) Promissory Estoppel; (4) Quasi Contract, Unjust Enrichment,
and/or Quantum Meruit; (5) Breach of Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing;
(6) Fraud; (7) Fraud in the Inducement; (8) Alter Ego; (9) Civil Conspiracy; (10)
Conversion; (11) Negligent Misrepresentation; (12) Gross Negligence; (13)
Constructive Trust; and (14) Declaratory Relief. These claims arise out of certain
loans that Camelot took from Incentive to finance the acquisition and distribution
of a film and television library (“Liberation Library”).
Defendants and Counterclaimants Camelot Entertainment Group, Inc.,
Camelot Film Group, Inc., Camelot Distribution Group, Inc., Robert P.

including (1) Breach of Contract; (2) Declaratory Relief; (3) Unlawful Business
Practices; (4) Constructive Fraud; (5) Intentional Interference with Prospective
Economic Advantage; (6) Unjust Enrichment.
Defendants Ted Baer and Peter Jarowey: Defendants have not yet answered
the Complaint. Defendant Baer’s Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Jurisdiction and
Defendant Jarowey’s Motion to Quash Service are pending.
Pursuant to Fed. R.Civ.P. 26(f) counsel for all parties have conferred but have
been unable to agree to a schedule.

scheduling conference with the court prior to entry of the scheduling order.
The parties will exchange by November 9, 2011 the initial disclosures required by
Rule 26(a)(1). By providing 26(a) disclosures, Defendants Baer and Jarowey are
not admitting personal jurisdiction.

to be served under Fed.R.Civ.P. 5(a) by either (i) notice of electronic filing, or (ii)
