The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER REGARDING STIPULATION CONCERNING HEARING ON MOTION FOR REMAND AND INITIAL SCHEDULING CONFERENCE
On October 16, 2009, Plaintiffs filed a motion to remand this action to state court. (Doc. 20.) Prior to the motion being heard, the parties filed three separate stipulations to continue the hearing date and/or the initial scheduling conference. (Docs. 22, 24 & 26.) The Court accommodated these requests. (See Docs. 23, 25 & 27.) On March 3, 2010, the parties filed a fourth stipulation seeking to continue the hearing and scheduling conference dates to July 16 and July 28, 2010, respectively. (Doc. 30.)
The Court APPROVES the stipulation IN PART as follows.
While the Court applauds the parties' efforts to settle this matter and preserve judicial resources (Doc. 30 at 2), because the motion has been pending for a period exceeding four months, the Court is not inclined to grant a continuance of an additional four months, to July 2010. Therefore, the Court ORDERS:
1. The hearing on the motion for remand is CONTINUED from March 26, 2010, to May 14, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom 10; and
2. The initial scheduling conference is CONTINUED from April 21, 2010, to June 2, 2010, at 9:30 a.m. in Courtroom 10.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
