Atha v. Washburn

United States District Court, M.D. Tennessee, Nashville Division

October 28, 2019

JONATHAN MICHAEL ATHA
v.
RUSSELL WASHBURN, et al

          Campbell, Judge

          SCHEDULING ORDER

          BARBARA D. HOLMES, UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE

         Pursuant to Local Rule 16.01(c)(1), this case is exempt from a mandatory case management conference, and all pretrial preparation in this action shall therefore take place according to the following schedule under Rule 16(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Pursuant to Rule 26(a)(1)(A) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the parties in this action are exempt from the initial disclosures required by Rule 26(a).

         I. GENERAL COURT RULES AND PROCEDURES

         Any filing made with the Court must comply with Rule 5 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, which requires that a copy of any filing made with the Court be sent to the opposing party or their counsel and that the filing contain a certification stating that a copy has been sent, to whom, at what address, and on what date. Any filing which does not comply with this requirement will be returned and/or stricken from the record.

         Each party is responsible for making and obtaining copies of any documents or filings sent to the Court. It is not the Court's responsibility to provide free copies of any documents to the parties. If a party desires to obtain a copy of a document in the official court file, the party should contact the clerk's office, with the docket entry number of the document if possible, about obtaining copies. The cost of copying is .50¢ per page.

         The parties are required to keep both the Court and the opposing party or its counsel informed of their current addresses. The plaintiff's failure to keep the Court informed of his current address may result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed for failure to prosecute and for failure to comply with the Court's order.

         II. PRETRIAL DEADLINES

         Amendment of Pleadings

         The parties shall have until January 6, 2020, to move to amend the pleadings.

         Discovery

         All discovery shall be completed by February 8, 2020. By this, the Court means that all depositions shall be noticed and completed in advance of the discovery completion date and that written discovery should be served far enough before the discovery completion date, i.e. at least thirty days prior to the discovery completion deadline, so that responses or objections to any written discovery can be made prior to the completion deadline. For example, serving written discovery upon an opposing party a few days prior to the discovery completion deadline does not comply with this scheduling order and may result in discovery being denied to the requesting party.

         Any party seeking to serve written discovery requests upon another party which would result in responses being served after the discovery completion deadline must obtain leave of the Court to serve untimely discovery requests.

         Written discovery should be sent to the opposing party and should not be filed with the Court, nor should a copy of the written discovery be sent to the Court unless it is filed as an attachment to a motion. A Court order is not required for a party to engage in discovery and discovery is not ...
