JUDITH ANN STYLES, LEIGH ANN STYLES, Plaintiffs,

          LAW OFFICES OF STEPHEN M. DIXON Stephen M. Dixon, Esq. Attorney for Plaintiffs, Judith Anny Styles & Leigh Ann Styles

          DENNETT WINSPEAR, LLP Ryan L. Dennett, Esq. Jennifer Insley Micheri, Esq. Attorneys for Defendant, State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance Company.

          STIPULATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO COMPLETE DISCOVERY (FIRST REQUEST)

         COME NOW, the parties above named, by and through counsel, and move the Honorable Magistrate Judge for an Order continuing Discovery and submit the instant Stipulation in accordance with LR 6-1 and LR 26-4. The parties have conferred and agree that an extension of remaining discovery dates (those remaining dates not expired prior to the stay imposed by the Court) is both necessary and warranted following the Plaintiffs' retention of new counsel after its former counsel, George W. Carter, Esq. and co-counsel, David Lee Phillips, Esq. withdrew and various discovery matters were not completed by Plaintiffs due to the issues previously addressed in open Court on November 2, 2016 and December 4, 2017.

         No previous requests or extensions for time in which to complete discovery in this matter have been requested.

         Written discovery to the Plaintiffs has been served and answered, Plaintiffs' depositions have been previously scheduled, but those depositions were stayed by the Court Order. Defendant has disclosed its expert.

         (b) DISCOVERY THAT REMAINS TO BE COMPLETED

         The parties will be conducting additional factual and expert discovery, including the depositions of Plaintiffs and of the parties affiliated with Defendant State Farm involved in the handling of Plaintiff's claim. Plaintiffs and Defendant have agreed that Plaintiffs may disclose their rebuttal expert as the time to do so had not yet expired when the Stay went into effect and Defendant shall have the right to supplement its expert disclosure, if necessary.

         (c) REASONS DISCOVERY WILL NOT BE COMPLETED WITHIN THE TIME LIMITS SET BY THE DISCOVERY PLAN

         Due to the withdrawal of Plaintiffs' former counsel and retention of new counsel, it has become necessary to extend the discovery for a period of six months.

         (d) PROPOSED SCHEDULE FOR COMPLETING REMAINING DISCOVERY:

         The parties hereby stipulate and request that discovery dates in this matter ...
