CASE MANAGEMENT ORDER TRACK: (STANDARD)
Lynn Winmill Chief Judge
accordance with the agreements reached in the telephone
scheduling conference held between counsel and the Court on
September 7, 2016, and to further the efficient
administration of this matter, NOW THEREFORE IT IS HEREBY
ORDERED that the following recitation of deadlines and
procedures shall govern this litigation:
Dispositive Motion Deadline: All dispositive motions
shall be filed by May 29, 2017. This deadline
will not be extended even if you are having
a. This is the critical event for case management and will
dictate when the trial will be set.
b. As provided below, a trial setting conference will be
scheduled immediately following resolution of all dispositive
motions. To facilitate a prompt trial setting, I will make
every effort to schedule oral argument within 60 days and
issue a decision within 30 days after the oral argument. If a
decision is not issued within this time frame, I invite
inquiry from counsel as to the status of the decision.
Amendment of Pleadings and Joinder of Parties: All
motions to amend pleadings and join parties, except for
allegations of punitive damages, shall be filed on or before
November 7, 2016. This deadline shall only be
extended for good cause shown. All parties are entitled to know
the claims and parties well-before trial rather than be
forced to pursue or defend against a moving target. Although
this deadline precedes the general discovery deadline, the
parties are directed to send out all discovery requests that
might relate to amendment or joinder enough in advance of
this amendment and joinder deadline to obtain the responses
needed to make an informed decision on amendment and joinder.
Alternative Dispute Resolution Plan: The parties
shall also file an ADR plan by December 7, 2016. The
ADR plan must indicate the form of ADR that will be utilized
and the date on which it will be conducted.
Discovery Plan: The parties have filed a stipulated
Discovery Plan (Dkt. 36) that the Court incorporates by
reference herein and APPROVES as an Order of the Court.
Early Resolution of Narrowing Issues: The parties
shall meet and confer regarding a timeline for pretrial
motions on the issues of qualified immunity and Monell
liability, with the goal of securing an early determination
on potentially dispositive issues. The Court strongly
encourages these early motions to be filed within 60 days.
The parties further agree to discuss the possibility of a
phased discovery timeline, including: (1) early priority for
issues bearing upon qualified immunity and Monell liability;
(2) deferring discovery on damages until after the Court has
ruled on any dispositive issues. On or before September
27, 2016, the parties shall provide the Court with a
proposed agreement on these issues. If no agreement can be
reached, the parties should contact Sarah Stellberg, the law
clerk assigned to this case (whose contact information is set
forth below), to facilitate mediation.
Completion of Discovery: All discovery will be
completed by April 28, 2017. This is a deadline for
the completion of all discovery; it is not a
deadline for discovery requests. Discovery requests
must be made far enough in advance of this deadline to allow
completion of the discovery by the deadline date. As noted
above, the parties may, by stipulation, agree to defer some
trial-related discovery until after I have ruled on any
Disclosure of Experts:
a. The Plaintiff shall disclose the experts intended to be
called at trial on or before January 30, 2017.
b. The Defendant shall disclose the experts intended to be
called at trial on or ...
