UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
February 20, 2007
BRENDA A. BEACHER, PLAINTIFF,
THE ESTATE OF FRED M. BEACHER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lindsay, Magistrate Judge
Before the court is the defendants' February 7, 2007 letter application seeking an order compelling the plaintiff to respond to their demand for the production of documents dated December 21, 2006 and to extend the February 23, 2007 discovery deadline so that the depositions of Mr. and Mrs. Beacher may be taken. The application is unopposed.
While the defendants do not state how much additional time they need, a forty-five day extension should allow ample time for the items identified as outstanding as well as any follow-up. Thus, the deadline for the completion of all discovery is extended through April 9, 2007. Any party seeking to make a dispositive motion shall take the first step in the motion process by April 23, 2007. The parties shall refer to the individual rules of District Judge Platt in this regard. The final conference before the undersigned is adjourned to May 14, 2007 at 11:30 a.m. The parties shall electronically file their proposed joint pretrial order in advance of the final conference.
