the “Stipulated Joint Motion for Continuance of Trial
and Related Deadlines” submitted by the parties. Dkt. #
69. 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.
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.
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.
