STIPULATION TO RESCHEDULE HEARING DATE FOR MOTION TO DISMISS; ORDER
Current hearing date: February 8, 2010 Current hearing time: 10:00 a.m. Courtroom: 4
The parties to this litigation, by and through their attorneys of record, stipulate to the following in support of a request for an order rescheduling the hearing on the defendants' motion to dismiss:
1. The hearing on the defendants' motion to dismiss currently is set for February 22, 2010, in Courtroom 4, with the plaintiff's opposition due by February 8, 2010, and the defendants' reply due by February 16, 2010.
2. With decision in the State Personnel Board hearing having just become final in the last few days, the parties would benefit from some time to discuss the possibility of settlement before additional attorneys' fees are spent briefing the motion to dismiss, preparing for the hearing, and attending the hearing. Defense counsel will be meeting with representatives of the County of Trinity regarding this matter during the week of February 8, 2010, and the parties will not be in a position to engage in meaningful settlement discussions until after this meeting.
3. The parties ask that the hearing on the defendants' motion to dismiss be moved to March 8, 2010, at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 4, with the plaintiff's opposition or statement of non-opposition and the defendants' reply due to be filed and served in accordance with Local Rule 230(c) with reference to the March 8, 2010, hearing date.
