AND [PROPOSED] ORDER

WHEREAS, the parties have selected a Mediator, but based on conflicting schedules of 21 the Mediator, Counsel for plaintiffs, Counsel for defendants and all parties, they have been 22 unable to hold the Mediation Session as of the date of this Stipulation despite scheduling and 23 organizing for the session to be held in May 2011. 24
WHEREAS, the parties and the Mediator have now scheduled a Mediation Session to be 25 held on August 25, 2011. 26
WHEREAS, the parties believe that continuing to stay all current filing deadlines 27 associated with this matter pending the scheduled Mediation Session will preserve the parties' and Court's resources and benefit settlement negotiations by allowing for the 2 Mediation Session without impending filing deadlines as an impediment to further settlement 3 discussions.
WHEREAS, the parties desire to set a schedule for continuing this
litigation should the
Mediation Session fail to end in the settlement of this matter.
NOW THEREFORE, the parties hereby agree and stipulate that this matter and all filing 7 deadlines associated with it, as ordered through prior Stipulations and Amendments thereto, 8 should be stayed pending resolution of the Mediation Session which is scheduled for August 9 25, 2011.
