Magistrate Thynge Broadens Discovery Guidelines in Revised Form Scheduling Order


Magistrate Judge Mary Pat Thynge recently broadened the Court’s discovery-dispute procedure. As of October 22, all discovery matters, rather than “disputes,” must follow the letter-briefing schedule set out in the Court’s revised form scheduling order). As demonstrated in a recent order, requests for extensions of discovery deadlines fall within the definition of “discovery matters,” and therefore must adhere to the Court’s guidelines.
