During the October 26, 2010 hearing on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss,
the Court scheduled
December 14, 2010 as the default date for the CMC, provided that the
Court had issued a ruling 5 on the Motions in advance of that date. As
the Court knows, all discovery in this case has been 6 stayed pending
this Court's rulings on Defendants' Motions to Dismiss.
In the Joint Case
The parties jointly submit this Request for a Continuance of the Case

February 4, 2011.
Management Statement filed on October 19, 2010 (DN 198), the parties agreed to meet and confer within 10 business days of the Court's rulings on Defendants' Motions to Dismiss, at which time the parties will engage in further discussions concerning the disclosures required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(a)(1), any modifications to limits on the number of interrogatories and depositions, and the development of a discovery plan in accordance with Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f)(2)-(f)(3), including disclosure or discovery of electronically-stored information. In order to allow sufficient time for these meet and confer discussions prior to the CMC and to promote judicial efficiency and economy, the parties respectfully request that the CMC be continued until February 4, 2011 or until such time as the Court deems proper.
