KENDALL J. NEWMAN, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner, proceeding pro se. On June 2, 2017, plaintiff filed a motion to modify the scheduling order to extend the deadline for discovery by sixty days based on defense counsel's statement of unavailability from May 15, 2017, through June 5, 2017. (ECF No. 52 at 2, 3-4.) Under the discovery and scheduling order, the deadline for discovery was set for June 5, 2017. However, because defense counsel was not available, plaintiff was unable to complete discovery as to defendant Ko. Despite plaintiff's due diligence, he will be unable to comply with the June 5, 2017 deadline.
"The district court is given broad discretion in supervising the pretrial phase of litigation."
Plaintiff has demonstrated good cause and diligence to extend the discovery deadline. Due to the extension of the discovery deadline, the pretrial motions deadline will also be extended. Plaintiff is cautioned that he must pursue discovery without further delay as the court is not inclined to grant further extensions of these deadlines. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY
1. Plaintiff's motion (ECF No. 52) is granted;
2. The June 5, 2017 discovery deadline is extended to September 15, 2017;
3. The September 5, 2017 pretrial motions deadline is extended to December 15, 2017; and
4. In all other respects, the February 1, 2017 discovery and scheduling order remains in intact.
