CIVIL ACTION NO. 07-0740-KD-C.
February 4, 2009
This matter is before the court on "Defendant's Motion to Reconsider Plaintiff's Unopposed Motion for Amendment of Scheduling Order and For Extension of Discovery." (Doc. 44) Upon consideration, the motion for reconsideration is GRANTED, in part, as follows:
To the extent the parties move the court to reconsider its earlier order denying the motion to reopen discovery (doc. 41), the motion is DENIED. As the court has previously noted, this ruling does not prevent the parties from conducting the depositions. The parties may agree to conduct the additional depositions. However, the court will not intervene if problems arise.
