UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
September 24, 2009
JOAQUIN R. WINFIELD, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERT DERASSO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lindsay, Magistrate Judge
By order dated July 17, 2009, the court directed counsel for the defendants to contact the plaintiff, by telephone, to discuss what, if any, discovery remains outstanding and then to submit a joint status letter to the court. The court is now in receipt of an application from the pro se plaintiff requesting that the court reschedule another telephone conference between the plaintiff and defense counsel because he was not permitted to bring his legal folder with him to the telephone conference room. Although the court denies that request, the court will permit the plaintiff to provide the defendants' counsel with a letter by October 9, 2009, addressing any outstanding discovery issues that he did not mention during the phone conference because he did not have his files with him. By October 23, 2009, counsel for the defendants must submit a letter to the court indicating each parties' position with respect to any alleged deficiencies in the discovery responses and/or any remaining discovery to be conducted. Upon receipt the court will issue an amended scheduling order.
