Case 3:13-cv-00146-RNC Document 51 Filed 01/21/14 Page 1 of 3
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF CONNECTICUT
LYNN ANDRUS, (cid:9)
DOONEY & BOURKE, INC. and
CIVIL ACTION NO.
JANUARY 21, 2014
JOINT MOTION TO EXTEND DISCOVERY
AND DISPOSITIVE MOTION DEADLINES
Plaintiff, Lynn Andrus ("Ms. Andrus") and Defendants, Dooney & Bourke, Inc.
("Dooney & Bourke") and Peter Dooney ("Mr. Dooney") (collectively, the "Defendants"),
jointly request that this Court extend the discovery period in this matter for three (3) months
from the currently scheduled deadline set forth in the Court's Scheduling Order (Dkt. #23) of
January 31, 2014 to April 30, 2014. In addition, Plaintiff and Defendants (collectively, the
"Parties") jointly request that this Court also extend the date for filing dispositive motions in this
matter for three (3) months from on or before March 14, 2014 to on or before June 13, 2014. In
support of their motion, the Parties state as follows:
The Parties have conducted significant discovery to date. The Parties have
exchanged and responded to each other's initial set of interrogatories and requests for production
of documents. During such discovery, the Parties have exchanged over twenty-five thousand
pages of documents.
Counsel for Defendants took Plaintiff's deposition on October 24, 2013.
Case 3:13-cv-00146-RNC Document 51 Filed 01/21/14 Page 2 of 3
Counsel for Plaintiff took the deposition of Defendant Peter Dooney on January 9,
The Parties have scheduled two additional depositions during the week of January
Good cause exists for the granting of this motion because the Parties need
additional time to schedule and take the depositions of multiple third-party witnesses. Plaintiff
intends to depose approximately four (4) additional fact witnesses in this matter, several of whom
are third-party witnesses that reside outside of the State of Connecticut. Defendants intend to
depose approximately two (2) additional fact witnesses in this matter, both of whom are third-
party witnesses that reside outside of the State of Connecticut. In order to find mutually
convenient dates to accommodate the schedule of these third-party witnesses and the three
attorneys representing the Parties in this case, the Parties jointly request an additional three (3)
months to complete discovery.
The Parties also jointly are filing on this date a motion to postpone the settlement
conference in this matter from its currently scheduled date of February 4, 2014 until a date on or
after May 1, 2014. The Parties jointly believe that the additional discovery described herein is
needed prior to a settlement conference in this matter.
The Parties' request to extend the discovery and dispositive motion deadlines set
forth above will not prejudice any party as the Parties have assented to it.
This is the Parties' first request for an extension of discovery and dispositive
motion deadlines in this matter.
