This Stipulation is made between Plaintiff Debra Taylor Johnson ("Taylor Johnson" or LOAN "Plaintiff") and Defendant City of Oakland ("City" or "Defendant"), by and through their respective counsel of record, with respect to the following facts:
WHEREAS, the deadline for filing and hearing dispositive motions was inadvertently excluded from the Court's Case Management Scheduling Order, dated April 5, 2010; and
WHEREAS, when the parties brought this matter to the Court's attention, the clerk instructed the parties to meet and confer on the matter and agree to a hearing and briefing schedule for dispositive motions; and
WHEREAS, the parties have conferred on this issue and have stipulated to the following hearing and briefing schedule for dispositive motions, and hereby request the Court's approval of this stipulation:
The hearing on dispositive motions will be set for January 6 or January 13, 2011 (depending upon the Court's preference)
The briefing schedule will be set as follows:
- The moving papers will be due no later than November 19, 2010.
- The opposition papers will be due no later than December 9, 2010.
- The reply papers will be due December 16, 2010.
WHEREAS, the parties believe this proposal is appropriate for the following reasons. First, it ensures that the parties' moving papers will not be due before the close of discovery, which is set for November 11, 2010. Second, it ensures that neither party will be required to file their oppositions or reply papers, or appear at the hearing, during the holidays;
WHEREAS, for the foregoing reasons, the parties respectfully request that the Court approve the above stipulation and issue an order setting the briefing and hearing schedule.
