WHEREAS the parties anticipate seeking preliminary approval of the class action settlement within the next thirty days; and agree that the hearing on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss should be continued until the settlement approval 10 process is complete.
THEREFORE, the parties agree and stipulate as follows:
The hearing on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss Second Amended Complaint, currently set for September 30, 2010, and the associated opposition and reply briefing, shall be continued until the settlement approval process is complete, at which time the parties shall advise this Court of the status of the case and settlement, and will reset the date for the hearing on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss, if necessary.
