UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
August 30, 2010
JOAQUIN R. WINFIELD, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERT DERASSO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lindsay, Magistrate Judge
By order dated April 30, 2010, the court directed the defendants to submit a customary joint pretrial order to the court by May 31, 2010. The court also directed any party wishing to make a dispositive motion to take the first step in the motion process by June 11, 2010. Although neither party took steps to submit a motion for summary judgment, the plaintiff did submit a request to Judge Platt for a pre-motion conference to address "amending the pleadings if necessary or desirable."*fn1 The defendants have not, however, filed the pretrial order. The court will give the parties one final opportunity to do so. The defendants are directed to electronically file the proposed joint pretrial order by September 27, 2010. The case will be returned to the District Judge upon receipt of the pretrial order.
