The opinion of the court was delivered by: Magistrate Judge O. Edward Schlatter
ORDER GRANTING JOINT MOTION FOR MODIFICATION OF SCHEDULING ORDER
The parties have jointly moved the court to extend the discovery deadlines by ninety days. They have indicated that this additional period of time is needed in order for plaintiff to reach maximum medical improvement, and for plaintiff's doctors to offer opinions with regard to plaintiff's prognosis.
District Judge Edward W. Nottingham has been consulted, and has approved the request for additional time. However, the parties are advised that any further requests for additional time will be received with extreme skepticism.
It is therefore ORDERED that the parties' Joint Motion for Modification of Scheduling Order [Doc. 30, filed Jan. 18, 2006] is GRANTED, and the deadlines are hereby extended to the following deadlines:
1. Cutoff for all discovery: May 15, 2006
2. Deadline for filing dispositive motions: June 15, 2006
3. Designation of plaintiff's experts: April 1, 2006
4. Designation of defendant's experts: May 1, 2006 The preliminary pretrial conference of March 1, 2006, is hereby VACATED and RESET to April 26, 2006, at 9:15 a.m.
The settlement conference of May 2, 2006, at 1:30 pm will remain set on that day. If counsel conclude that discussions on that day will not be productive, they are directed to contact this chambers and re-schedule the conference.
