May 28, 2021 Filing 98 Magistrate Judge Marianne B. Bowler: ELECTRONIC ORDER entered re: Motion for Judgment on the Pleadings and to Stay Discovery by Erik Grunigen. (Docket Entry #36 ).As stated in open court on May 27, 2021, defendant Erik V. Grunigen's two-part motion seeking both a judgment on the pleadings and a stay of discovery (Docket Entry #36 ) is DENIED as to the request to stay discovery. The motion for judgment on the pleadings remains pending before this court. Defendant Erik V. Grunigen ("defendant") seeks a stay of discovery pending "further order of this Court" and a resolution of the motion for judgment on the pleadings. (Docket Entry #36 , ¶¶ 6-7). By way of explanation, this court "has broad discretion to stay discovery pending resolution of a motion to dismiss." Dicenzo v. Mass. Dept of Corr., Case No. 3:15-cv-30152-MGM, 2016 WL 158505, at *1 (D. Mass. Jan. 13, 2016). Nevertheless, "stays cannot be cavalierly dispensed: there must be good cause for their issuance; they must be reasonable in duration; and the court must ensure that competing equities are weighed and balanced." Marquis v. Fed. Deposit Ins. Corp., 965 F.2d 1148, 1155 (1st Cir. 1992); accord Hillside Plastics, Inc. v. Dominion & Grimm U.S.A., Inc., Civil Action No. 3:17-cv-30037-MAP, 2018 WL 3727365, at *2 (D. Mass. Aug. 6, 2018) (quoting Marquis, 965 F.2d at 1155). Here, plaintiff Richard P. Taylor more than adequately refutes any good cause by explaining in an affidavit that a stay will unnecessarily delay resolution of claims in the first amended complaint seeking production of corporate records and corporate tax filings, which he needs to file correct tax returns and avoid exposure to penalties and interest. (Docket Entry # 40-1) (Docket Entry #28 , pp. 42-43, 45-46, 52, ¶¶ 156-160, 173-180). Defendant's argument to stay discovery to avoid "time consuming" and "expensive" deposition practice (Docket Entry #36 , 7) is insufficient to justify a stay of discovery. See also Lugo v. Alvarado, 819 F.2d 5, 7 (1st Cir. 1987) (affirming lower court's denial of motion to stay discovery pending resolution of qualified immunity and noting movant's "acquiescence to the discovery schedule established by the district court"). (Patton, Christine)
