October 16, 2020

         This order sets firm dates that can be changed only by order of the Court, not by agreement of counsel for 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 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.

         Counsel are directed to review Judge Jones' Chambers Procedures at http://www.wawd.uscourts.gov/judges/jones-procedures. Counsel are expected to abide by the requirements set forth therein. Failure to do so may result in the imposition of sanctions.

         Links to Local Rules, Electronic Filing Procedures for Civil and Criminal Cases, court forms, instruction sheets, and General Orders, can be found on the Court's website at www.wawd.uscourts.gov.

         Discovery

         As required by LCR 37(a), all discovery matters are to be resolved by agreement if possible. Counsel shall also cooperate in preparing the agreed pretrial order in the format required by LCR 16.1. The parties shall comply with Judge Jones' chambers procedures regarding discovery disputes.

         Meet and Confer Requirement

         For all cases, except applications for temporary restraining orders, counsel contemplating the filing of any motion shall first contact opposing counsel to discuss thoroughly, preferably in person, the substance of the contemplated motion and any potential resolution. The Court construes this requirement strictly. Half-hearted attempts at compliance with this rule will not satisfy counsel's obligation. The parties must discuss the substantive grounds for the motion and attempt to reach an accord that would eliminate the need for the motion. The Court strongly emphasizes that discussions of the substance of contemplated motions are to take place, if at all possible, in person. All motions must include a declaration by counsel briefly describing the parties' discussion and attempt to eliminate the need for the motion and the date of such discussion. Filings not in compliance with this rule may be stricken.

         Alterations to Filing Procedures

         Counsel are required to electronically file all documents with the Court. Information and procedures for electronic filing can be found on the Western District of Washington's website at http://www.wawd.uscourts.gov/attorneys/cmecf. The following alteration to the Filing Procedures applies in all cases pending before Judge Jones:

         1. Mandatory chambers copies are required for all e-filed motions, responses, replies, and sur-replies, and all supporting documentation relating to motions, regardless of page length.

         The paper copy of the documents (with tabs or other organizing aids as necessary) shall be delivered to the Clerk's Office by 12:00 p.m. on the business day after filing. The chambers copy must be clearly marked with the words “Courtesy Copy of Electronic Filing for Chambers.” The parties are required to print all courtesy copies from CM/ECF using the “Include headers when displaying PDF ...
