Length of Trial:

5 days Jury

         These dates are set at the direction of the Court after reviewing the “Joint Motion for Extension of Trial and Pretrial Deadlines” submitted on April 11, 2017. All other dates have already passed or are specified in the Local Civil Rules. If any of the dates identified in this Order or the Local Civil Rules fall on a weekend or federal holiday, the act or event shall be performed on the next business day. These are firm dates that can be changed only by order of the Court, not by agreement of counsel or the parties. The Court will alter these dates only upon good cause shown; failure to complete discovery within the time allowed is not recognized as good cause.

         If the trial date assigned to this matter creates an irreconcilable conflict, counsel must notify Teri Roberts, the judicial assistant, at 206-370-8810 within 10 days of the date of this Order and must set forth the exact nature of the conflict. A failure to do so will be deemed a waiver. Counsel must be prepared to begin trial on the date scheduled, but it should be understood that the trial may have to await the completion of other cases.

         The settlement conference conducted between the close of discovery and the filing of dispositive motions requires a face-to-face meeting or a telephone conference between persons with authority to settle the case. The settlement conference does not have to involve a third-party neutral.

         ALTERATIONS TO ELECTRONIC FILING PROCEDURES AND LOCAL RULES

         Information and procedures for electronic filing can be found on the Western District of Washington's website at www.wawd.uscourts.gov. Pro se litigants may file either electronically or in paper form. The following alterations to the Electronic Filing Procedures apply in all cases pending before Judge Lasnik:

- Alteration to LCR 10(e)(9) - Effective July 1, 2014, the Western District of Washington will no longer accept courtesy copies in 3-ring binders. All courtesy copies must be 3-hole punched, tabbed, and bound by rubber bands or clips. If any courtesy copies are delivered to the intake desk or chambers in 3-ring binders, the binders will be returned immediately. This policy does NOT apply to the submission of trial exhibits.
- Alteration to Section III, Paragraph M of the Electronic Filing Procedures - Unless the proposed order is stipulated, agreed, or otherwise uncontested, the parties need not e-mail a copy of the order to the judge's e-mail address.
- Pursuant to LCR 10(e)(10), all references in the parties' filings to exhibits should be as specific as possible (i.e., the reference should cite the specific page numbers, paragraphs, line numbers, etc.). All exhibits must be marked to designate testimony or evidence referred to in the parties' filings. Filings that do not comply with LCR 10(e) may be rejected and/or returned to the filing party, particularly if a party submits lengthy deposition testimony without highlighting or other required markings.
- Alteration to LCR 7(d)(4) - Any motion in limine must be filed by the date set forth above and noted on the motion calendar no earlier than the second Friday thereafter. Any response is due on or before the Wednesday before the noting date. Parties may file and serve reply memoranda, not to exceed nine pages in length, on or before the noting date.
