ECF No. 72. 25 The parties have engaged in discovery, including document requests, interrogatories, and 26 discovery conferences, as well as discovery-related motion practice. 27 The Court recently resolved outstanding disputes between the parties. ECF Nos. 123, 136, 28 138, 139. STIP. MOTION TO MODIFY CASE DEADLINES AND ORDER CASE NO.: 2:21-CV-00750-RSL FENWICK & WEST LLP -1- 1191 SECOND AVENUE, 10TH FLOOR SEATTLE, WASHINGTON 98101 In view of the Court’s recent orders on discovery, the parties have met and conferred in 1 2 good faith to discuss the need for an extension of the fact discovery deadline given the significant 3 volume of discovery to be completed. The parties agree that there is good cause to extend that 4 deadline to August 16, 2023 in order to complete fact discovery, including the discovery addressed 5 in the Court’s October 3 and 31 orders (ECF Nos. 123, 136), and depositions of both parties. The parties agree and respectfully request that the Court extend fact discovery cutoff and 6 7 subsequent deadlines by approximately eight-and-a-half months as follows: 8  August 16, 2023 - Fact discovery cutoff 9  October 10, 2023 - Last day to file motion for class certification (including expert report in support of class certification) 10  11 December 8, 2023 - Last day to file opposition to class certification (including expert report in opposition to class certification) 12  13 January 11, 2024 - Last day to file reply in support of class certification (including 14 reply class certification expert report limited to any new subjects introduced in 15 opposition report) The Parties further agree to continue discussing in good faith interim deadlines related to 16 17 fact discovery but may need further assistance from the Court if they are unable to come to a 18 resolution. These interim deadlines will include, inter alia, deadlines for Defendants’ substantial 19 completion of document production and production of privilege logs. Defendants are in the 20 process of collecting the ESI necessary to comply with the Court’s order, and are assessing the 21 time and resources necessary to complete their production. Defendants currently anticipate that 22 their production will be substantially complete at least four months before the close of discovery, 23 but if additional time is required, the parties agree jointly to request a further extension of the fact 24 discovery cutoff to ensure that plaintiffs have four months to review Defendants’ document 25 production and complete fact witness depositions. 26 / / 27 / / 28 / / STIP.
