United States v. State

United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Seattle

September 24, 2019

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, et al., Plaintiffs,
v.
STATE OF WASHINGTON, et al., Defendants. TRIAL DATE: March 29, 2021

          ORDER

          RICARDO S. MARTINEZ CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE

         This matter is before the Court following the parties’ submission of proposed scheduling orders. Dkts. #121 and #122. A scheduling conference was previously set for September 26, 2019. Considering the parties’ submissions, the Court does not find that a scheduling conference is warranted to address the minor disagreements between counsel. The Court will strike the scheduling conference and set a case schedule below.

         Stillaguamish also filed a motion requesting that the Court not consider certain material contained in the proposed schedule of the opposing tribes. Dkt. #123. As the Court does not need to consider the disputed information to resolve the issues before the Court, that motion is moot.

         Accordingly, and having reviewed the record, the Court finds and ORDERS:

1. The Court STRIKES the September 26, 2019 scheduling conference.
2. The Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians’ Motion for Miscellaneous Relief re: Responding Tribes’ Response to Court’s August 14 Direction: [Proposed] Order Setting Pre-Trial Schedule, Trial Date, and Related Dates (Dkt. #123) is DENIED as moot.

         All other dates 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 the Deputy Clerk, Lowell Williams or Laurie Cuaresma by telephone at (206) 370-8521 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 trial may have to await completion of other cases.

         ALTERATIONS TO ELECTRONIC FILING PROCEDURES
