September 3, 2010
ARCHER DANIELS MIDLAND COMPANY, PLAINTIFF,
GREG DAWS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Charles S. Miller, Jr. United States Magistrate Judge
This trial in this case was originally scheduled for March 22, 2011. However, on September 1, 2010, the parties filed a joint motion for continuance wherein they requested a ninety day extension of trial and all related deadlines, including the deadlines for completing discovery and filing dispositive motions.

He further ordered that all pretrial deadlines be reset accordingly.

3. The parties shall have until October 1, 2010 to complete fact discovery and to file discovery motions.
4. The parties shall provide the names of expert witnesses and complete reports under Rule 26(a)(2) as follows: Plaintiff will disclose its expert witnesses and their reports by October 1, 2010. Defendant will disclose his expert witnesses and their reports by November 1, 2010. (Reports to be served on other parties, but not filed with the court.)
5. The parties shall have until December 3, 2010 to complete discovery depositions of expert witnesses.
10. The parties shall have until December 3, 2010, to file other dispositive motions (summary judgment as to all or part of the case).
