remain in effect, and in addition to those provisions, the
following shall apply:

All interrogatories, requests for admission and requests for
production or inspection, whether or not they are intended to
be used at trial, shall be completed by October 31,
2018. Counsel may stipulate to extensions of time to
respond to discovery requests in accordance with Fed.R.Civ.P.
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.
c. Discovery Motions.
Discovery motions shall be filed not later than
October 2, 2018, as to matters which are
then ripe for decision; discovery matters arising after that
