IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
June 30, 2006
MILDRED KASTEN, PLAINTIFF,
VOLKSWAGEN OF AMERICAN, INC., DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Donald G. Wilkerson United States Magistrate Judge
This matter is before the Court on the Scheduling and Discovery Conference set for July 5, 2006 at 9:00 a.m. Attorney John T. Papa contacted chambers and indicated that this matter will, in all likelihood, be transferred to the MDL panel. In light of this information, the scheduling conference is RESET to August 15, 2006 at 2:00 p.m.
The parties are nonetheless reminded that the presumptive trial date is unlikely to move and the parties will be bound by the 115/100 day discovery/dispositive motion filing deadlines located in the Local Rules. In addition, the Court is unlikely to reset the scheduling conference, for a second time, irrespective of a potential transfer to the MDL panel. Thus, the requirements of the original Notice to Counsel (Doc. 9) still apply.
