Neither the memoranda&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;submitted by the parties nor this motion identify any facts essential to the opposition that were&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;not already in plaintiffs&amp;amp;rsquo; possession. Plaintiffs argue that they should be permitted to question&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;the individual motives of each defendant related to the bound lots dues exemption, but the legal&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;relevance of that information is not clear. The request to deny or, in the alternative, continue the&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;summary judgment motion is therefore denied. If, upon further review of the motion for&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;summary judgment, it appears that a Rule 56(d) continuance is, in fact, necessary, the Court will&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;revisit the issue sua sponte.&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;1 Counsel are instructed to utilize this abbreviated form of caption in all future papers and to&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;refrain from listing each and every moving party when filing documents in CM/ECF.&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFFS&amp;amp;rsquo; MOTION&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;TO CONTINUE&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;Case 2:14-cv-01840-RSL Document 70 Filed 03/03/16 Page 1 of 2&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;This matter has been pending since December 2014. Pursuant to the schedule set by the&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;Court in July 2015, discovery in this matter will close in three months. There is ample time&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;remaining in which plaintiffs can review the documents that have been produced by defendants&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;and conduct depositions. Good cause for a continuance has not been shown.&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;For all of the foregoing reasons, plaintiffs&amp;amp;rsquo; motion to continue the pending summary&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;judgment motion and case management deadlines (Dkt. # 53) is DENIED.&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;Dated this 3rd day of March, 2016.&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;A&amp;lt;br /&amp;gt;Robert S.
