ORDER (1) DENYING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION FOR CLASS (2) SETTING SCHEDULE FOR RENEWED MOTION (Doc. No. 47)
On December 7, 2007, the Court held a telephonic status conference with counsel.
Pursuant to the status conference, the Court hereby ORDERS as follows:
-Plaintiffs' motion for class certification pursuant to the Fair Labor Standards Act, 29 U.S.C. § 216(b), is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE. (Doc. No. 47.) The Court finds that denying the motion and granting plaintiffs leave to file a renewed motion are appropriate in light of the intervening developments in Cleaves et al v. Jenny Craig, et al., Los Angeles Superior Court Case No. BC354904.
-The Court shall rule on defendants' objection to the ruling of Magistrate Judge Battaglia on or before February 8, 2008. (See Doc. No. 116.)
-If plaintiffs wish to renew their motion for class certification, they SHALL FILE that motion on or before February 29, 2008.
-If plaintiffs file a renewed motion for class certification, the remaining briefing schedule is as follows: defendants SHALL FILE their opposition on or before March 21, 2008, and plaintiffs SHALL FILE their reply on or before April 4, 2008.
-If plaintiffs file a renewed motion for class certification, the Court shall hear oral argument on the motion on April 18, 2008 at 10:30 a.m. in Courtroom 6.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
