CORRINET VS. BARDY

Plaintiff says it was a quid pro quo for an agreement not to extend discovery past the January 2018 trial date. But again, there is no term of the stipulation to that effect. Further, while the “bid and ask” of the 2017 stipulation are not explained in detail, it was evidently plaintiff, not just defendants, who was seeking to extend the discovery cutoff date to a time after the original June 2017 trial date (though it may be inferred that defendants were fine with that extension too).
