IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN FRANCISCO DIVISION
May 4, 2011
IN THE MATTER OF SORTWELL, INC.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: James Ware United States District Chief Judge
ORDER GRANTING STIPULATION IN PART; MODIFYING CASE SCHEDULE
Presently before the Court is the parties' Stipulation and Proposed Order Regarding Various Scheduling Dates. (Docket Item No. 46.) The parties contend that certain dates should be extended 16 to provide both parties with more time for the completion of discovery. (Id. at 2.) Further, the 17 parties contend that "completion of discovery will . . . maximize the chance of this matter being 18 resolved through a meaningful mediation." (Id.) The parties contend that they "have met and 19 conferred regarding ADR and are in the process of scheduling a mediation with JAMS with a 20 probable date in June, 2011." (See Docket Item No. 44 at 5.) 21
Upon review, the Court finds good cause to grant a brief extension of time to allow for 22 mediation. In addition, because this case was recently transferred to this Court, the Court modifies 23 the case schedule to coincide with its pretrial practices. Accordingly, the Court MODIFIES the Case Schedule as follows: 25
(1) The Court sets July 11, 2011 at 10 a.m. for a Preliminary Pretrial Conference. On or before July 1, 2011, the parties shall file a Joint Pretrial Statement which includes, inter alia, an update on the parties' mediation effort and proposed schedules for trial.
(2) All discovery shall close on September 9, 2011.
(3) The last date for hearing dispositive motions will be on November 7, 2011.
