WHEREAS, lead plaintiff filed his Consolidated Amended Class Action Complaint for Violation of the Federal Securities Laws in this action on January 15, 2008, and defendants filed a Motion to Dismiss Plaintiffs' Consolidated Amended Complaint for Violation of the Federal Securities Laws ("Motion to Dismiss") on March 7, 2008;
WHEREAS, pursuant to Civil Local Rule 7-3, lead plaintiff is to have 25 pages to respond to defendants' Motion to Dismiss, due April 21, 2008, and defendants are to have 15 pages to reply, due May 29, 2008;
WHEREAS, lead plaintiff believes that because of the number and complexity of the issues raised in defendants' 25-page Motion to Dismiss, lead plaintiff will need an additional 10 pages to fully respond to all of defendants' arguments; and
WHEREAS, defendants have agreed to stipulate to an extension of the page limit for lead plaintiff's response to 35 pages, and, in turn, seeks a 5-page extension for their reply brief.
IT IS THEREFORE STIPULATED AND AGREED by lead plaintiff and defendants, through their respective counsel of record, that, subject to the Court's approval, lead plaintiff shall have 35 pages to respond to defendants' Motion to Dismiss and defendants shall have 20 pages for their reply brief.
