STEVEN W. HOLLAND PLAINTIFF
v.
KEESLER FEDERAL CREDIT UNION DEFENDANT

          ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF STEVEN W. HOLLAND'S MOTION FOR RECONSIDERATION [101]

          HALIL SULEYMAN OZERDEN UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         BEFORE THE COURT is Plaintiff Steven W. Holland's Motion for Reconsideration [101] of the Court's Text Only Order denying Plaintiff's Motion [99] for time. This Motion is fully briefed. After consideration of the Motion, the record as a whole, and relevant legal authority, the Court finds that the Motion should be granted. Plaintiff is directed to re-file his proposed Motion to Strike, previously docketed as Document 100, and his proposed supporting Memorandum [100-1] within three (3) days of the entry of this Order.

         I. RELEVANT PROCEDURAL HISTORY

         A. Motions to Amend the Case Management Order

         The Case Management Order [9] was entered on December 4, 2015, establishing the deadline for Plaintiff Steven W. Holland (“Plaintiff”) to file his expert designation as March 1, 2016, and the parties' deadline for filing Daubert and dispositive motions as May 23, 2016. The trial was originally scheduled for October 2016. Order [9] at 4-5. A review of the record reflects numerous motions to amend the Case Management Order or extend deadlines have been filed.

         On March 31, 2016, Defendant filed an Unopposed Motion [22] requesting an additional 30 days from the date Plaintiff served his expert report in which to file Defendant's expert report. Defendant's Motion stated in part as follows:

Mot. [22] at 1-2 (emphasis in original). The Court granted Defendant's Motion in an April 1, 2016, Text Order and amended the Case Management Order to extend Defendant's deadline for filing its expert designation to May 9, 2016.

         Defendant then filed on May 6, 2016, a Joint Motion [34] with Plaintiff seeking additional time to designate experts. Defendant asserted that Plaintiff had still not served an expert report because Plaintiff's counsel reported that he had been “ill for several weeks and unable to work” or “travel.” Mot. [34] at 1-2. The Court granted the parties' Motion in a May 10, 2016, Text Order and amended the Case Management Order to extend: (1) Defendant's deadline to designate experts to June 17, 2016; (2) the ...
