ORDER by Judge James A. Teilborg designating action a standard track case. Counsel for plaintiff(s) shall notify Court in writing when parties are prepared for Preliminary Pretrial Conference. Upon receipt of this notice, Court will issue a separate order setting time and date for Preliminary Pretrial Conference. Because this Court requires a filing that is broader and more detailed than that proposed in a "Form 35 Report of Parties' Planning Meeting," the Order setting Rule 16 Preliminary Pretrial Conference will also instruct parties as to the specific contents the court expects in their Proposed Case Management Plan. That to satisfy requirements of Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 26(a), parties shall file with the Clerk of the Court a Notice of Initial Disclosure; copies of the actual disclosures shall therefore not be filed. That, absent Court approval, no party may seek discovery from any source before parties have met and conferred as required by Rule 26(f) Federal Rules of Civil Procedure 26(d). Pla shall serve dft with a copy of this order (cc: all counsel) re: order filed [2-1] (DMT) (Entered: 10/01/2003)
