IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
December 14, 2006
ERIC WILL, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
GENERAL DYNAMICS CORP., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is defendant General Dynamics' motion for entry of a briefing schedule relative to plaintiff's motion for class certification. (Doc. 31). Defendants note that they submitted a proposed schedule in November, which proposed deadlines that are fast approaching.
Defendant is understandably anxious to get this action underway, but a review of the record reveals the case was recently reassigned to Chief Judge Murphy, and that there has also been a reassignment of law clerk responsibilities. Accordingly, the case has yet to be assigned a track and trial setting, which are necessary before any schedule can be contemplated.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that defendant General Dynamics' motion for entry of a briefing schedule relative to plaintiff's motion for class certification (Doc. 31) is DENIED AS PREMATURE.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD U. S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
