("Defendants") submit this stipulation and request an order setting early briefing deadlines for responses and replies to Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand (ECF No. 33) and the Motion to Dismiss filed by some of the Defendants (ECF No. 34). The stipulated dates will require the parties to file their response and reply briefs before the deadlines as calculated under the Local Rules, but will not alter the hearing setting. Both motions are set for hearing on September 19, 2011.
Counsel for Plaintiffs and counsel for Defendants have conferred and agreed to request that the briefing deadlines be set as follows:
a. Defendants' Response to Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand and Plaintiffs' Response to the Motion to Dismiss filed by some of the Defendants are due on August 17, 2011; and
b. Plaintiffs' Reply to Defendants' Response to Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand and Defendants' Reply to Plaintiffs' Response to the Motion to Dismiss are due on September 8, 2011.
The parties respectfully request that the Court set the response and reply briefing deadlines for August 17, 2011 and September 8, 2011, respectively.
Now before the Court is the parties' Stipulated Request to Set Early Briefing Deadlines. Having considered the stipulation, the Court APPROVES the stipulation and ORDERS that the response briefs to the Plaintiffs' Motion to Remand (ECF No. 33) and the Motion to Dismiss (ECF No. 34) are due on August 17, 2011 and the reply briefs are due on September 8, 2011.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
