STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO EXTEND THE TIME FOR COURT-ORDERED MEDIATION
The undersigned parties, through counsel, STIPULATE and AGREE and jointly request modification of the Court's September 28, 2007 Case Management Order to extend by 60 days the time for Court-ordered mediation based on the following circumstances:
1. The Court ordered the parties to mediation and set a deadline of January 25, 2008 (120 days from the case management order).
2. Deputy City Attorney David Newdorf, plaintiff's counsel John Burris, and Court- appointed mediator Christopher Johns held a telephone conference on December 10, 2007. During the conference, the parties agreed that additional discovery would be necessary in order for mediation to be beneficial. Plaintiff's counsel's will is now preparing for trial and will be in trial in U.S. District Court for most of January 2008. Accordingly, the parties agreed to seek a 60-day extension of the time to mediate the case. The Court-appointed mediator agreed to this extension, if requested by the parties and approved by the Court.
3. There have been no other modifications to the Case Management order. The trial of this matter is set for February 2, 2009. No other dates will be affected by this change.
Dated: December 10, 2007
Pursuant to stipulation, and for good cause appearing, IT IS ORDERED that the deadline for Court-ordered mediation in this case is continued to March 25, 2008.
