Parties are reminded that there is no "order" in which discovery must occur, and that one party’s failure or inability to respond to discovery will not excuse any other party’s prompt compliance. All motions to compel must comply with Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(a)(2). Certification required by the rule shall be made separately from the text of the motion and shall set out specific actions taken towards resolution. Parties are also reminded that the pendency of a motion, such as a motion to dismiss, does not operate as a stay or extension of discovery.
