Plaintiff sought leave to conduct discovery prior 16 to the required discovery conference under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(f), in order 17 to support the motion for preliminary injunction it planned to file at the time it made its 18 motion.

The Court 22 issued its Order Regarding Initial Disclosures and Joint Statius Report on September 1, 23 2017. Dkt. #7. That Order set the deadline for the parties’ FRCP 26(f) conference for 24 September 29, 2017. Id. There is no indication from the parties that they were unable to 25 meet that deadline, and it has now passed. Therefore, the Court can only assume that the 26 ORDER - 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 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. 7 8 A 9 RICARDO S.
