ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION TO EXTEND TIME FOR FILING PRELIMINARY APPROVAL OF SETTLEMENT [Re: Docket No. 53]
On February 22, 2011, upon being informed that the parties had come to an agreement to settle this wage-and-hour class action with respect to three of the four named plaintiffs and the 18 purported class members, this Court vacated the trial date and ordered the parties to file a joint motion for preliminary approval of the class settlement by March 15, 2011. Docket No. 48.
That date having come and gone, Plaintiffs' now request an extension of that deadline.
Docket No. 53. Plaintiffs' counsel states that he is "in the final stage of drafting the Notice to the class members, and Defendants are reviewing the final Settlement Agreement," and he expects that "all papers will be ready for filing in the next couple of days." Id. Despite this relative optimism,
Plaintiffs' counsel apparently has not yet provided to Defendants a draft of the joint motion for preliminary approval. Docket No. 54.
In light of these circumstances, the Court will extend the deadline. Plaintiffs shall provide a draft of the joint motion for preliminary approval no later than March 22, 2011, and the parties' 28 joint motion shall be filed no later than March 29, 2011.
