IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 22, 2010
JOSEPH PATRICK CULLIVAN, PLAINTIFF,
KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN RAILWAY COMPANY, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is defendant's Motion to Compel. (Doc. 29). Plaintiff filed a response at Doc. 33.
Defendant served written discovery requests on January 20, 2010. Plaintiff did not file timely responses, which has resulted in a delay in taking plaintiff's deposition. In his response to the motion, plaintiff states that he answered the discovery requests without objection on April 19, 2010, after the Motion to compel had been filed.
The deadline for the completion of all discovery is June 8, 2010. Absent good cause, that deadline will not be extended.
For good cause shown, defendant's Motion to Compel is GRANTED in that plaintiff is ordered to appear for deposition on a mutually agreeable date no later than May 7, 2010. Plaintiff is hereby cautioned that further unjustified delays in discovery will result in sanctions, which may include monetary sanctions and/or dismissal of this case.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
