THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
ASH GROVE CEMENT COMPANY, a
Delaware corporation; GOODMAN
CONVEYOR COMPANY; and JOHN
CASE NO. C15-1561-JCC
The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable John C.
17 Coughenour, United States District Judge:
This matter comes before the Court on the motion to continue trial by Defendant TPI
19 Engineered Systems Inc. (Dkt. No. 64), to which the parties have stipulated. (See Dkt. No. 68.)
The parties have requested a trial day of May 7, 2018, or later. (Id. at 1.) However, given
21 the slow pace of this case so far, the Court deems such an extension too long. Instead, the
22 Court CONTINUES the jury trial in this case from September 11, 2017 to Monday,
23 January 29, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
The Court acknowledges that TPI was added as a Defendant later than others, in
26 November 2016. (See Dkt. No. 68 at 2.) Although the Court is not providing as much additional
time as requested, a January 2018 trial date would still give TPI over a year to prepare for trial.
