MEMORANDUM DECISION AND ORDER OVERRULING OBJECTION TO MAGISTRATE DEADLINES
TED STEWART, District Judge.
This matter is before the Court on Defendants' Objections to the Magistrate Judge's decision to enter a Scheduling Order.
Under 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A) and Rule 72(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Court reviews a Magistrate Judge's orders on nondispositive matters under a clearly erroneous or contrary to law standard.
The Court has carefully reviewed the Scheduling Order, the transcript of the Initial Pretrial Conference, Defendants' objections and the related briefing, and the relevant case law. Having done so, the Court cannot conclude that the Magistrate Judge's decision was clearly erroneous or contrary to law. Therefore, the Court will overrule the objections. However, the Court will exercise its discretion to stay the deadlines contained in the Scheduling Order until after the Court has ruled on Defendants' pending Motions to Dismiss. The parties are directed to submit a stipulated scheduling order within five (5) days after the Court issues a ruling on those Motions, if they are denied in whole or in part.
