ORDER GRANTING STIPULATION RE: ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD BRIEFING SCHEDULE
Having considered the parties' Stipulation and Order Re: Administrative Record Briefing Schedule and Re: Page Limits filed herein and good cause appearing therefor, the Court hereby ORDERS as follows:
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The briefing and hearing schedule for motions to augment the Administrative Record or challenge the contents of the Administrative Record shall be revised as follows: a. Plaintiffs' and real parties in interest California Department of Water Resources and its Director Lestor Snow's (real parties in interest are referred to, collectively, as "DWR") opening briefs shall be filed and served on or before December 14, 2009; b. Federal defendants and defendant-intervenors' opposition briefs shall be filed and served on or before January 22, 2010; c. Plaintiffs' and DWR's reply briefs shall be filed and served on or before
February 5, 2010; and d. The hearing shall be held on February 22, 2010.. 2. Page limits for the early dispositive motions to be filed on November 2, 2009 shall be not greater than 35 pages, total, per side for moving and opposing memoranda of points and authorities and not greater than 15 pages, total, per side for reply memoranda of points and authorities.
3. For purposes of the foregoing pages limits for the early dispositive motions, all plaintiffs and DWR, collectively, shall be considered one side, and the federal defendants and defendant-intervenors, collectively, shall be considered one side.
4. The page limits and coordination of briefing set forth herein apply solely to the early dispositive motions to be filed on November 2, and shall have no effect on the briefing of any other issues or claims.
5. After the Administrative Record is filed by the federal defendants, the parties will meet and confer about page limits on the motions to augment or otherwise challenge the contents of the Administrative Record and thereafter submit to the Court their positions about page limits for those briefs.
6. Page limits for the remaining motions for summary judgment will be deferred until the March 1, 2010 scheduling conference.
7. The ordered consolidation of the cases does not require merger of the claims and does not make the parties to one case parties to another case. The cases retain their distinctiveness, and, where appropriate, the issues and briefing may remain separate.
