PRETRIAL SCHEDULING ORDER
JAMES P. DONOHUE, Chief Magistrate Judge.
This is a civil rights action brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Defendants have now filed an answer to plaintiff's second amended complaint. Accordingly, the Court hereby establishes the following pretrial schedule:
All discovery shall be completed by
Any dispositive motion shall be filed and served on or before
All briefs and affidavits in opposition to any motion shall be filed and served pursuant to the requirements of Rule 7 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and LCR 7. The party making a motion may file and serve a reply to the opposing party's briefs and affidavits. Any reply brief shall also be filed and served pursuant to the requirements of Rule 7 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and LCR 7.
Defendants are reminded that they MUST serve a Rand notice, in a separate document, concurrently with motions for summary judgment so that pro se prisoner plaintiffs will have fair, timely and adequate notice of what is required of them in order to oppose such motions. Woods v. Carey, 684 F.3d 934, 941 (9th Cir. 2012). The Ninth Circuit has set forth model language for such notices:
Rand v. Rowland, 154 F.3d 952, 963 (9th Cir. 1998) (emphasis added). Defendants who fail to file and serve the required Rand notice on the plaintiff may have their motion stricken from the Court's calendar with leave to re-file.
Joint Pretrial Statement
The parties are advised that a due date for filing a Joint Pretrial Statement may be established at a later date pending the outcome of any dispositive motions.
Proof of Service and Sanctions
All motions, pretrial statements and other filings shall be accompanied by proof that such documents have been served upon counsel for the opposing party or upon any party acting pro se. The proof of service shall show the day and manner of service and may be by written acknowledgment of service, by certificate of a member of the bar of this Court, by affidavit of the person who served the papers, or by any other proof satisfactory to the Court. Failure to comply with the provisions of the Order can result in dismissal/default judgment or other appropriate sanctions.
(5) The Clerk of Court is directed to send a copy of this Order to plaintiff and to counsel for defendants.
