UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 16, 2008
GA ESCROW, LLC, A DELAWARE LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY, A REPRESENTATIVE FOR THE ESCROW PARTICIPANTS, PLAINTIFF,
AUTONOMY CORPORATION PLC, A CORPORATION FORMED UNDER THE LAWS OF ENGLAND AND WALES DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: The Honorable Susan Illston United States District Judge
STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER CONTINUING CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE UNTIL JANUARY 2009 TO FACILITATE MEDIATION Date: December 12, 2008 Time: 2:00 p.m.
1. On November 7, 2008, the Court issued an order granting in part and denying in part Defendant's Motion to Dismiss and scheduled a Case Management Conference for this Friday, December 12.
2. The parties are attempting resolving this case through a mediation in New York City. The mediation has been difficult to arrange, given that: (a) Defendants' representative will be flying in from Cambridge, England; (b) documents are being gathered in Cambridge and California to facilitate a productive mediation; and (c) arrangements for all witnesses are being made during the fourth quarter of the business year as well as the holiday season.
3. As a result, the parties respectfully seek a brief continuation of the Case Management Conference until January of 2009. Such a continuance will promote judicial economy (the case may settle, in which event there will be no need to set further dates) and will conserve financial resources of the parties (out-of-town counsel will not need to travel to San Francisco to attend the CMC).
4. The extension of time is sought in good faith and for reasons set forth above and not for the purpose of delay.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED:
That the Case Management Conference shall be continued until January of 2009.
Dated: December 8, 2008
Good cause having been shown, the Case Management Conference shall be Continued January 30, 2009 until _____________________, 2009.
