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.
