ORDER MODIFYING DISCOVERY AND SCHEDULING ORDER
KENDALL J. NEWMAN, Magistrate Judge.
Defendants Dr. Braun and Dr. Majumdar moved this Court for an order a limited modification of the Court's Discovery and Scheduling Order of January 4, 2017 (ECF No. 34), including the dates/deadlines for conducting the depositions of Plaintiff and up to three non-expert witnessed whose identities plaintiff may establish in his deposition, and for filing discovery motions relative to those depositions. Plaintiff has not filed an opposition.
"The district court is given broad discretion in supervising the pretrial phase of litigation."
Defendants have shown good cause to continue the deadline for discovery based on the unexpected medical leave of former defense counsel. Defendants' request to extend the discovery deadline to June 14, 2017, is granted. In light of this extension, the dispositive motions deadline is continued to September 14, 2017. In all other respects, the January 4, 2017 discovery and scheduling order remains in effect.
1. Plaintiff's deposition is to be completed by June 14, 2017;
2. The depositions of up to three non-expert witnesses who plaintiff may identify in his deposition as having knowledge to support his claims are to be completed by June 14, 2017;
3. Any discovery motion relative to the depositions listed above is to be filed by June 14, 2017; and
4. All pretrial motions, except motions to compel discovery, shall be filed on or before May 11, 2017.
