MEMORANDUM ORDER OF COURT
In a letter dated October 19, 2010, Class Counsel requested a modification of the discovery deadlines. (Docket No. 371). Defendants responded thereto on October 23, 2010. (Docket No. 375). Specifically, Class Counsel requests I impose a January 18, 2010, deadline for Defendants to produce all class discovery related to the new opt-in Plaintiffs. I decline to do so. This request has already been raised and rejected previously. See, Docket Nos. 363, 373.
To the extent that Defendants employees*fn1 are not available for depositions by November 24, 2010, Defendants are granted additional time to find available dates to complete said depositions, not to exceed December 30, 2010.
Additionally, I note that Defendants have not suggested that discovery related to the new opt-in Plaintiffs would be a "last minute" production.
THEREFORE, this 23rd day of November, 2010, it is ordered that Class Counsel's request is denied.
Donetta W. Ambrose United States District Judge
