JAMES L. ROBART, District Judge.

Deadline to complete discovery on September 27, 2017 class/collective certification (not to be construed as a bifurcation of discovery) Deadline for Plaintiffs to file motion for October 27, 2017 class/collective certification (noted on the fourth Friday after filing and service of the motion pursuant to Local Rules W.D. Wash. LCR 7(d)(3) unless the parties agree to different times for filing the response and reply memoranda).

This Order is issued at the outset of the case, and a copy is sent by the clerk to counsel for plaintiff (or plaintiff, if pro se) and any defendants who have appeared. Plaintiff's counsel (or plaintiff, if pro se) is directed to serve copies of this Order on all parties who appear after this Order is filed. Such service shall be accomplished within ten (10) days after each appearance.

The court will set further case schedule deadlines pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 16(b) after ruling on the motion for class/collective certification. Counsel for Plaintiff(s) shall inform the court immediately should Plaintiff(s) at any time decide not to seek class/collective certification. The dates set in this scheduling order are firm dates that can be changed only by order of the court, not by agreement of the parties. The court will alter these dates only upon good cause shown. The failure to complete discovery within the time allowed will not ordinarily constitute good cause.
