Mandatory Initial Discovery Pilot Project

The Mandatory Initial Discovery Pilot Project (“MIDP”) applies to all cases referred to Judge Weisman by Judges Alonso, Bucklo, Castillo, Chang, Coleman, Dow, Durkin, Ellis, Feinerman, Kendall, Lee, Pallmeyer, Shah, St. Eve, Tharp, and Wood and all cases in which the parties have consented to this Court’s exercise of jurisdiction.  The MIDP Standing Order explains the procedures the parties must follow.  Each attorney, or party proceeding pro se, who files or has filed an appearance is required to sign the MIDP Order, certifying that he/she has read it and has given a copy of it or conveyed the contents of it to his/her client.  The signed MIDP Order must be filed no later than seven days after the filing of the attorney/pro se party’s appearance, entry of the referral order, or the filing of the parties’ consent to the exercise of jurisdiction by Judge Weisman, whichever is later.
