JOINT STIPULATED REQUEST, PURSUANT TO LOCAL RULE 6-2, FOR ORDER CONTINUING CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE AND ORDER THEREON
This stipulation is entered by and through plaintiffs Cunzhu Zheng, Quan Guo, and the China Democracy Party ("Plaintiffs") and defendant Yahoo!, Inc. and specially appearing defendant Yahoo!

2) Plaintiffs are currently drafting a revised amended complaint that will significantly alter the case, as one plaintiff plans to withdraw from the suit and two others plan to join. The parties hope soon to file a joint stipulation regarding Plaintiffs' amendment, although Defendants 11 reserve all rights.
