The court believes that the import of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure is to place discovery in the hands of counsel. If a motion addresses discovery issues, counsel shall meet and confer in accordance with E.D. Mich. LR 37.1. The court encourages counsel to attempt to resolve all discovery matters before a motion is heard, and submit a Stipulation and Order Resolving Motion. If counsel are unable to resolve their differences, the movant shall prepare a JOINT list of unresolved issues setting forth the issues that remain unresolved. The Joint List shall not exceed ten (10) pages. No exhibits or attachments shall be filed with the Joint List. The Joint List should be delivered or faxed to the chambers of the magistrate judge prior to the hearing. The Joint List is not to be e-filed.
