JOINT STIPULATION PURSUANT TO LOCAL RULE 6-2 AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CONTINUING COURT-ORDERED DEADLINES
Pursuant to Local Rule 6-2, in light of the related "Motion for Transfer and Consolidation of Related Actions to the Northern District of California Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407" now pending before the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation ("JPML"), and in light of the December 19, 2007 Joint Stipulation Pursuant to Local Rule 6-1 Extending Time to Respond to the Complaints in Related Actions, Plaintiffs Thomas Schelly, Michael Benson, and Tori Kitagawa (collectively "Plaintiffs") and Defendant Northwest Airlines (Defendant"), through its counsel, hereby stipulate and agree as follows:
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED that, given the length of time likely to be required by the JPML to resolve the pending motion, the efficiency in having one case management schedule set for consolidated class actions rather than proceeding separately, and the desirability of having the court to whom the matter is ultimately assigned set its own case management schedule, Plaintiffs and Defendant agree that the dates set in the Court's November 30, 2007 Order Setting Initial Case Management Conference (and the deadlines triggered by such conference) should be continued. The Initial Case Management Conference will be continued to a date within 45 days of the JPML granting, denying or otherwise disposing of the Section 1407 motion before it. After such action by the JPML, Plaintiffs and Defendant will meet and confer and submit proposed dates for the Initial Case Management Conference.
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
