from July 5, 2011 to August 23, 2011 in order to accommodate
Plaintiff's counsel's vacation 20 schedule;
WHEREAS, Plaintiff has not filed a Notice of Need for Mediation

in the process of
obtaining involved and complex bids from contractors to effect such
remedial measures in order 2 to evaluate their feasibility. Defendants
anticipate that they will have all the information 3 needed to
properly evaluate Plaintiff's proposal within thirty (30) days and the
Parties 4 anticipate that it will take an additional thirty (30) days
to complete settlement negotiations and 5 either settle this matter or
make a determination that it must proceed to mediation and/or a case 6
WHEREAS, for the reasons set forth above, the Parties seek to continue the date that a notice of need for mediation must be filed to October 14, 2011, and that the date for the case 9 management conference be continued to a date after November 8, 2011.
IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED by and between Plaintiff Anthony Lerma and Defendants A Bite of Wyoming, Inc.; S. Max Spurgeon and Esperanza J. Spurgeon, Trustees of 12 the Spurgeon Living Trust, by and through their respective counsel, that the last date for Plaintiff to file a Notice of Need for Mediation be October 14, 2011 and that the case 14 management conference be continued to a date after November 8, 2011.
The Parties having so stipulated and good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Case Management Conference be reset for November 1, 2011 at 2 p.m. in Courtroom 5, 4th Floor, San Jose, before Magistrate Judge Paul S. Grewal.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff is to file a notice of need for mediation on or before October 14, 2011 should the matter not be dismissed in its entirety prior to that date.
