4:09CV3062 FINAL PROGRESSION ORDER
On the Court's own motion, IT IS ORDERED that: 1) With the agreement of Judge Piester, the Chief Judge and the other district judges, Judge Kopf has begun handling all magistrate matters previously handled by Judge Piester. Judge Kopf will do so for the foreseeable future regarding his own cases as well as cases assigned to other district judges. Thus, any magistrate matters previously handled by Judge Piester will be handled by Judge Kopf alone unless otherwise ordered and that is true for cases assigned to Judge Kopf and it is also true for cases assigned to other district judges. However, the district judge assigned to try this case has not changed. No telephonic planning conference will be held to discuss the progression of this case to trial. On the contrary, a final progression order is now issued as set forth in the following paragraph. The final progression order is as follows: a. A jury trial is set to commence on March 1, 2010. No more than three days are allocated to the trial of this case and counsel shall plan accordingly. This case is subject to the prior trial of criminal cases and such other civil cases as may be scheduled for trial before this one. The pretrial conference will be held by Judge Kopf in his chambers on February 4, 2010 at 12:30 p.m. One- half hour is allocated to this conference. Counsel shall provide Judge Kopf with a draft pretrial conference order at this pretrial conference and the draft order shall conform to the requirements of the local rules.

The parties shall comply with all other stipulations and agreements recited in their Rule 26(f) planning report that are not inconsistent with this order. Counsel may contact Judge Kopf by arranging a telephone conference with Kris Leininger of Judge Kopf's chambers (at 402-437-1640) should they have any objections or questions about this order or should other issues subsequently arise that may delay or frustrate the prompt and fair resolution of this case.
