who submit their Stipulated Motion to Extend Discovery Cut-Off for Limited Purposes, and aver as follows: 1. Certification pursuant to D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1(A): Counsel for Plaintiffs and
Defendants certify that they jointly submit this Motion, as indicated by their signatures below. Cross-Plaintiffs, Boulder Cleaners, Inc.'s and John's Cleaner's Inc.'s, claims have been severed from this action and their claims will be tried separately at the conclusion of this matter. As such, counsel for Cross-Plaintiffs has not been consulted regarding this relief. 2. The initial Complaint in this matter was filed on September 14, 2001. A seven
week trial is currently scheduled to commence on September 11, 2006. Pursuant to Magistrate Judge Michael J. Watanabe's July 31, 2003 Minute Order, the discovery cut-off in this matter was September 12, 2003, which was three years prior to the trial's commencement. 3. As this Honorable Court is aware, this matter arises out of alleged contamination
allegedly caused by the operation of dry cleaning operations on Plaintiffs' property. Plaintiffs have asserted various causes of action, including a RCRA citizen suit, a CERCLA cost recovery action and a CERCLA contribution claim, among others. 4. Since the discovery cut-off of September 12, 2003, remediation efforts and testing Multiple reports have been issued concerning the alleged

contamination. The parties hereto believe that it is necessary to re-depose the other's experts to obtain updated information and their respective opinions based on the current state of the alleged contamination, the property and any changes or discoveries that have occurred since September 12, 2003.

At this time, Plaintiffs wish to depose Adrian Brown,
Defendants' environmental expert, and Defendants wish to depose David M. Rau and Eugene R. Weiner, Plaintiffs' environmental experts. At a minimum, these three (3) depositions are
necessary given the subject matter of this case, the continued actions on the property since September 12, 2003, and the alleged damages and requested relief at issue. 6. In addition to the above depositions, Plaintiffs and Defendants request that they
be permitted to propound one (1) set of written discovery, including interrogatories, requests for production of documents and requests for admissions, to each other. 7. Based on the above, the parties hereto respectfully request that the discovery cut-
off be extended through July 14, 2006, for the limited purposes outlined above. 8. The parties agree that nothing in this stipulation will affect the Court's scheduled
trial date of September 11, 2006. The parties will be prepared to commence trial of the case on that date. 9. In furtherance of their request and in an effort of cooperation, the parties stipulate
that they will both serve any supplemental disclosures on or before May 30, 2006. 10. In furtherance of their request and in an effort of cooperation, the parties stipulate
that they will both file revised and supplemental trial exhibit lists by August 15, 2006. 11. As this Honorable Court is aware, Cross-Plaintiffs, Boulder Cleaners, Inc. and
John's Cleaners, Inc., previously reached a settlement with Plaintiffs. Pursuant to this Court's Minute Order of April 14, 2005, Cross-Plaintiffs were granted a separate trial on their claims

against CVY and JOS because Cross-Plaintiffs "agree[d] to be bound by the factual determinations in the first matter. . . ." Accordingly, Cross-Plaintiffs are not joined in this Stipulated Motion. WHEREFORE, Plaintiffs and Defendants respectfully request that the Court extend the discovery cut-off date through July 14, 2006, in order to permit both parties to notice and conduct no more than five (5) depositions per party and propound one set of written discovery, including interrogatories, requests for production of documents and request for admissions, to the other. A proposed Order is attached. Respectfully submitted this 1st day of May, 2006.
