Be fully prepared to discuss issues relating to service of process, venue, pleadings, discovery, joinder of additional parties, theories of liability, damages, and applicable defenses. Parties are encouraged to discuss these issues amongst themselves prior to the conference when possible.

Failure to file a Complaint or effectuate service of process prior to the conference date may result in issuance of a Rule to Show Cause. 4. Conduct discovery as soon as practicable, even while awaiting disposition of preliminary objections. The presumptive discovery deadlines are calculated from the filing date of an action, not from the date of the Case Management Conference.
