JAMES P. O'HARA, Magistrate Judge.
Defendant has filed a motion to stay discovery (ECF No. 25) pending a ruling on its motion to dismiss (ECF No. 23). Plaintiff has not filed a timely opposition to the motion to stay.
D. Kan. Rule 7.4(b) provides:
Although the court could grant the motion to stay solely on the ground that it is unopposed, the court will briefly address the merits of the motion.
It has long been the general policy in the District of Kansas not to stay discovery even if a dispositive motion is pending,
Upon review of the instant motion and the pending dispositive motion, the court concurs with defendant that a stay of discovery is warranted until the court rules the pending dispositive motion. Defendant's motion to dismiss, if granted, would dispose of the entire case. It seeks judgment as a matter of law, and is not dependent on any information that would be gained through discovery. Accordingly, discovery at this point is unnecessary and potentially wasteful.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendant's motion to stay discovery (ECF No. 25) is granted. If defendant's motion to dismiss is denied, defendant shall notify the undersigned's chambers
Plaintiff is hereby informed that, within 14 days after she is served with a copy of this order, she may, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 72 and D. Kan. Rule 72.1.4(a), file written objections to this order by filing a motion to review this order. Plaintiff must file any objections within the 14-day period if she wants to have appellate review of this order. If plaintiff does not timely file her objections, no court will allow appellate review.
