Mandatory Initial Discovery Pilot Project

The Court typically will set all newly filed cases for an initial status hearing approximately 60 days from the filing of the complaint.  As soon as possible, the parties should review the materials below and file the attorney certification as ordered by the Court.  Additionally, at least four working days before the initial status hearing, the parties shall file a joint initial status report in accordance with the instructions below.


It is the intent of the Court that the initial status hearing take place approximately 30 days after the deadline for the filing of the first answer or responsive pleading under Rule 12.  If the initial status hearing date set by the Court is before such date, Plaintiff should file a short status report (in lieu of a joint initial status report) at least four working days before the initial status hearing, informing the Court of the deadlines for Defendant(s) to answer or otherwise plead under Rule 12.  The Court will then reset the initial status hearing date.
