Date Filed#Document Text
October 3, 2018 91 Opinion or Order of the Court ORDER - This matter involves thirteen plaintiffs, eleven defendants, and widespread allegations of improper and discriminatory conduct in the marketing and selling of derelict homes on a "rent-to-own" basis. [See generally Filing No. 9 .] Defendants counterclaim, alleging defamation and other state-law tort and contract claims. [Filing No. 32 at 33-52.] Pending before the Court are two summary judgment motions (one ripe and the other awaiting additional briefing) and a collate ral motion for additional discovery to respond to summary judgment. [Filing No. 33 ; Filing No. 65 ; Filing No. 72 .] This Order sets forth the Court's expectations for dispositive motions practice during the pendency of this matter. As ex plained below, the Court GRANTS Plaintiffs' Motion Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 56(d), [Filing No. 65 ]; DENIES WITHOUT PREJUDICE Defendants' Motion for Partial Summary Judgment, [Filing No. 33 ]; and NOTIFIES Plaintiffs that they may e ither withdraw their Anti-SLAPP summary judgment motion, [Filing No. 72 ], or may stand on their motion, but file no additional summary judgment motions in this case. The Court therefore GRANTS Plaintiffs' Motion Pursuant to Rule 56(d), 65 , and DENIES Defendants' Motion for Partial Summary Judgment, 33 , WITHOUT PREJUDICE to raising their arguments as part of a single summary judgment motion at the appropriate stage of the proceedings. Consistent with the foregoing, the Cour t NOTIFIES Plaintiffs that they may withdraw their not-yet-ripe Anti-SLAPP summary judgment motion, 72 , and include the same arguments in a later, consolidated dispositive motion, or may stand on their filing and permit it to proceed to resolutio n. But Plaintiffs, like Defendants, will be entitled to just one summary judgment motion in this lawsuit. The Court ORDERS Plaintiffs to notify the Court whether they intend to withdraw their summary judgment motion on or before October 10, 2018. Finally, the Clerk is directed to update the docket to reflect pro se Plaintiff Isaac Perez's last known address, as shown in the distribution below. (See Order). Copy to Isaac Perez via US Mail. Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 10/3/2018. (APD)
