IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 17, 2011
RALPH COLEMAN, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
EDMUND G. BROWN, JR., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
On December 11, 1995, this court entered an order referring this matter to a special master and directing that the special master's fees and expenses be borne by the defendants as part of the costs of this action. In the December 11, 1995 order, the court directed defendants to deposit the sum of $250,000.00 with the Clerk of the Court, said amount to be invested in an interest-bearing account. By subsequent orders, the court has directed defendants to deposit additional interim payments totaling $42,250,000.00 with the Clerk of the Court. A significant amount of work remains to be done by the special master and additional funds are required to pay his fees and expenses.
Accordingly, good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Within forty-five days from the date of this order, defendants shall deposit with the Clerk of the Court a seventy-sixth interim payment of costs in the amount of $750,000.00 which amount shall be invested in the interest-bearing account previously opened for this action; and
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the Financial Department of this Court.
