Lone Pine order. A case-management order in a toxic-tort lawsuit involving many plaintiffs, establishing procedures and deadlines for discovery, including requiring the plaintiffs to timely produce evidence and expert opinions to substantiate each plaintiff’s exposure to the hazardous substance, the injury suffered, and the cause of the injury. Lore v. Lone Pine Corp., No. L-33606-85 (N.J. Super. Ct. Nov. 18, 1986). • Although the Lone Pine opinion is unreported, it has become famous for the kind of case-management order involved, in part because the plaintiffs’ claims were dismissed for failure to timely provide expert opinions. [Cases: Federal Civil Procedure  1925.1; Pretrial Procedure  747.1. C.J.S. Trial § 47.]
