Last Thursday, Judge Caproni rejected a proposed joint scheduling order that provided for a party’s brief to be due on a Monday, citing her policy to set deadlines for the end of the week to avoid making associates work over the weekend.  Specifically, Judge Caproni said:

The Court recognizes that Defendants requested that their reply brief be due on Monday, May 16, 2022.  To avoid associates working on the weekends, the Court’s policy is to set deadlines towards the end of the week.
