Memorandum Opinion and Order on the parties' competing proposals for the scheduling of class related discovery. The Court finds that it would be more appropriate to postpone class discovery and class certification briefing until after discovery related to the named Plaintiffs has been completed and dispositive motions relating to those individuals have been addressed. Fact discovery should proceed as previously established as to the named Plaintiffs only. Class certification and class discovery issues are stayed until further notice. In so far as Defendants' briefing proposal also requested a limitation on Plaintiffs' request for discovery in connection to Counts Five and Six of the Complaint, Plaintiffs have not yet been given an opportunity to respond to these arguments. Any objections Plaintiffs have to the limitations suggested by Defendants on discovery related to Counts Five and Six should be filed with the Court no later than October 7th, 2013. Defendants may file a Reply, limited to this issue, on or before October 15th (related docs 44, 45 and 46). Judge Donald C. Nugent (C,KA)

Memorandum Opinion finding that although the retention and exercise of control of the means and manner of the agents' service was not technically allowed under the terms of the Agency Agreement, American Family did expect its managers to exercise such control whenever necessary to achieve compliance with Company goals and standards. Therefore, the Court finds that the class Plaintiffs in this case were employees of American Family during the relevant class period. The Court finds, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1292(b), that an interlocutory appeal may materially advance the ultimate termination of the litigation because: (1) there was evidence supporting both sides in this case; (2) prior case law has been nearly unanimous in finding that insurance agents generally are to be classified as independent contractors; (3) the repercussions of this finding are so far-reaching; and, (4) the resolution of damages will be unusually complicated. Therefore, the Court authorin fact, filed (related docs 21, 316, 317). Judge Donald C. Nugent 7/31/17(C,KA)zes the parties to take an interlocutory appeal of this Order, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1292(a)(1). This case shall be stayed pending the resolution of any such appeal. The parties shall notify the Court within ten days whether an appeal was, i
