Namecheap, Inc. v. Tucows, Inc. et al
ORDER denying as moot Plaintiff's 9 Motion for Leave to Conduct Limited, Expedited Discovery, signed by Judge Ricardo S Martinez.(SWT)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON
NAMECHEAP, INC., a Delaware
Case No. C17-1310RSM
ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR
EXPEDITED DISCOVERY AS MOOT
TUCOWS, INC., a Pennsylvania corporation,
THIS MATTER comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Leave to Conduct
Limited, Expedited Discovery. Dkt. #9. Plaintiff sought leave to conduct discovery prior
to the required discovery conference under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(f), in order
to support the motion for preliminary injunction it planned to file at the time it made its
motion. Id. Defendants opposed the motion. Dkt. #17. Plaintiff has since filed its Motion
for Preliminary Injunction. Dkt. #19.
The Court now finds the motion for expedited discovery to be MOOT. The Court
issued its Order Regarding Initial Disclosures and Joint Statius Report on September 1,
2017. Dkt. #7. That Order set the deadline for the parties’ FRCP 26(f) conference for
September 29, 2017. Id. There is no indication from the parties that they were unable to
meet that deadline, and it has now passed. Therefore, the Court can only assume that the
ORDER - 1
conference took place, and Plaintiff has no procedural bar to moving forward with seeking
the discovery it desires.
Accordingly, the Court hereby ORDERS that Plaintiff’s Motion for Leave to Conduct
Limited, Expedited Discovery (Dkt. #9) is DENIED AS MOOT.
DATED this 2 day of October, 2017.
RICARDO S. MARTINEZ
CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
