ORDER AMENDING FINAL SCHEDULE FOR PROGRESSION OF
Gossett, III United States Magistrate Judge.
matter comes before the court on the Unopposed Motion to
Amend Order Setting Final Schedule for Progression of Case
(Filing No. 56) and Defendant’s Amended Motion
to Amend Order Setting Final Schedule for Progression of Case
(Filing No. 60). The parties’ initial motion
requested extension of certain deadlines, including the
summary judgment deadline, which would have required moving
the final pretrial conference and trial dates. After contact
from the court, none of the parties consented to moving the
trial date. Therefore, Defendant filed an amended motion
omitting the request to extend the summary judgment deadline.
After careful consideration and for good cause shown, the
court finds Defendant’s Amended Motion to Amend Order
Setting Final Schedule for Progression of Case (Filing
No. 60) should be granted. Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED
that paragraph 4 of the Order Setting Final Schedule for
Progression of Case (Filing No. 24) dated October
19, 2015, and paragraphs 2, 3 and 5 of the Order Amending
Final Schedule for Progression of Case (Filing No.
47) dated April 22, 2016, are hereby amended as follows:

be used at trial, shall be completed by August 29,

29, but such extensions shall not extend any of the dates in
this order; any request to extend the deadlines of this order
shall be sought by motion.
