Chao-Cheng Teng v. Shore Club Hotel Condominiums

June 18, 2012

CHAO-CHENG TENG
v.
SHORE CLUB HOTEL CONDOMINIUMS, ET AL.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Joseph N. Laplante United States District Judge

ORDER AFTER PRELIMINARY PRETRIAL CONFERENCE

The Preliminary Pretrial Conference was held in court on June 18, 2012.

The case is stayed for 30 days from this date to enable the plaintiff to secure counsel. The stay will be lifted 31 days from this date. Any request for an extension must be accompanied by an affidavit setting forth the details (dates, meetings, conversations, names of counsel contacted) of the plaintiff's efforts to retain counsel.

The Discovery Plan (document no. 27) is approved as submitted, with the following changes:

* Summary judgment deadline - 120 days prior to final pretrial conference

* Jury trial - June, 2013

Summary Judgment. The parties and counsel are advised that compliance with Rule 56(e) and Local Rule 7.2(b), regarding evidentiary support for factual assertions, and specification and delineation of material issues of disputed fact, will be required.

Discovery disputes. Discovery disputes will be handled by the undersigned judge, as opposed to the Magistrate Judge, in the normal course. No motion to compel is necessary. The party or counsel seeking discovery-related relief should confer with adverse counsel to choose mutually available dates, and then contact the Deputy Clerk to schedule a conference call with the court. The court will inform counsel and parties what written materials, if any, should be submitted in advance of the conference call.

Customary motions to compel discovery, while disfavored by the undersigned judge, are nonetheless permissible. If counsel prefer traditional discovery litigation to the conference call procedure set forth above, any such motion to compel should expressly request, in the title of the motion, a referral to the United States Magistrate Judge. Such referral requests will normally be granted. If the Magistrate Judge is recused, alternate arrangements will be made.

SO ORDERED.
