STIPULATION AND ORDER FOR CONTINUANCE OF SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE
Pursuant to L. R. 7-12, Plaintiff and Counter defendant William Giffen ("Giffen") and Defendant and Counterclaimant Michael Taylor Designs, Inc. ("MTD"), by and through their respective counsel, hereby stipulate and agree to the following:
WHEREAS, on April 6, 2009 this Court entered an Order [Docket No. 45] setting a Settlement Conference for this lawsuit to take place on May 29, 2009, commencing at 9:00 a.m. at Courtroom G, 15th Floor, Federal Building, 450 Golden Gate Avenue, San Francisco, California 94102; and
WHEREAS, on that date David A. Gauntlett of Gauntlett & Associates, lead counsel for MTD in this case, will be on an airplane returning to California from a trip to Europe whose scheduling long pre-dated the Order's issuance; and
WHEREAS, due to an oversight on the part of MTD's counsel this conflict and the need to re-schedule the Settlement Conference only very recently came to counsels' attention; and
WHEREAS, Giffen and MTD have conferred and agreed to reschedule the conference to June 26, 2009 (which they understand presently is the earliest date available on the Court's 15 schedule).
NOW THEREFORE, subject to the approval of the court the parties stipulate and agree to the following:
1. The settlement conference for this lawsuit, previously ordered to commence on May 29, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom G, 15th Floor of this Court in San Francisco, California, instead shall commence on June 26, 2009 at the same time and place originally set.
2. All other provisions of the Order entered on April 6, 2009 [Docket No. 45] shall remain in effect. The deadlines stated in the Order for filing Settlement Conference statements shall apply to the new Settlement Conference date.
PURSUANT TO STIPULATION, IT IS SO ORDERED.
