Peerless Industries v. Crimson AV, Case No. 11-CV-1768, Slip Op. (N.D. Ill. May 8, 2013)(Lefkow)
In this case, Crimson AV filed an early motion for summary judgment and claimed that it required on further discovery to dispose of plaintiff’s case. It then determined that it wanted additional discovery.
The Court denied additional discovery because it would be inefficient to allow further discovery while the motion for summary judgment was pending, as the motion was fully briefed and could not be used to support the motion. However, the Court allowed the possibility that discovery would be granted if the motion for summary judgment were denied.
