10/01/2020 3478 NA [Subfile ZRB-1-0148] ORDER re [3476] by Magistrate Judge Jerry H. Ritter. The Court mistakenly listed the expert deadlines for this subfile as 11/9/2020 for Plaintiffs and 12/9/2020 for Defendant Meech in its text-entry, when the parties intended Defendant's deadline to be 11/9/2020 and Plaintiffs' to be 12/9/2020. Therefore, [3476] is amended nunc pro tunc to reflect the parties' intent. Defendant Meech's expert disclosure is due 11/9/2020. Plaintiffs' is due 12/9/2020.
