In this case, Crawford moved for summary judgment on December 16, 2015—less than two months after the case was initiated. The Court has yet to issue a scheduling order or conduct an initial case management conference. Additionally, the parties have not yet begun discovery—on the issue presented in the motion or any other. (“The [parties] have yet to conduct any discovery.”). Granting summary judgment not just before discovery has been completed, but before it has even begun on this issue, would be premature.
