The Honorable Robert S. Lasnik 1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 7 8 9 BRANBAR, LLC, Plaintiff, 10 11 12 NO. 16-CV-00842-RSL v. FIRST AMERICAN TITLE INSURANCE COMPANY, Defendant. STIPULATED MOTION TO ALLOW DEPOSITION OF PLAINTIFF'S EXPERT WITNESS AFTER DISCOVERY DEADLINE 13 14 Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 29, LR 7(d)(1) and LR 10(g), the parties hereby stipulate to 15 and move the Court for an Order allowing defendant to take the deposition of plaintiff’s 16 expert witness, Bruce J. Dodds, on Friday, March 3, 2017, which is after the current 17 February 21, 2017 discovery deadline. Plaintiff’s expert witness’s office is located in 18 Washington, but has been engaging in prolonged travel without any dates available to sit for a 19 deposition in Washington State prior to the close of discovery. The parties’ counsel have met 20 and conferred with each other, and plaintiff’s counsel has informed defendant that the earliest 21 availability for an in-person deposition in Washington State is March 3, 2017. No other 22 deadlines are being requested to be amended, and no other discovery is being requested to 23 take place after the February 21, 2017 deadline. Extending the discovery deadline for this 24 single deposition is justified because otherwise defendant and plaintiff would potentially have 25 26 STIPULATED MOTION TO ALLOW DEPOSITION OF PLAINTIFF'S EXPERT WITNESS AFTER DISCOVERY DEADLINE - 1 1435682.01 1 to bear the unnecessary expense of out-of-state travel to conduct the deposition of an expert 2 witness whose place of business is Medina, Washington. For the reasons identified above, the parties stipulate to allowing the deposition of 3 4 Bruce J. Dodds of Dodds Consulting Engineers, Inc. P.S. to be taken by defendant on 5 March 3, 2017 after the close of discovery. DATED this 14th day of February, 2017. 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 /s/ Robert M. Crowley Jonah Harrison, WSBA #34576 Robert M.
