The opinion of the court was delivered by: Richard Seeborg United States District Judge
United States District Court For the Northern District of California
ORDER DENYING DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME AND CONSOLIDATING HEARINGS ON MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AND MOTION TO DENY SUMMARY JUDGMENT
On August 11, 2011, plaintiffs Gary Gee, Roxanne Mazarakis, and Jody Soto filed a motion 21 for partial summary judgment against defendant SunTrust Mortgage, Inc. In response, SunTrust 22 separately noticed a motion requesting that the Court either defer consideration or deny plaintiffs' 23 motion pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 56(d)(1). SunTrust also filed a motion under Civil Local Rule 6-3 to enlarge the time for it to file its response to plaintiffs' motion for summary 25 judgment until after the Court ruled on its later filed motion. SunTrust's request to enlarge time is 26 denied. Instead, the Court shall consolidate the hearings on plaintiffs' motion for partial summary 27 judgment and SunTrust's request to defer or deny it.
Accordingly, the Court amends the schedule on plaintiffs' motion for
judgment as follows. If SunTrust wishes to supplement its opposition
to plaintiffs' motion for 3 partial summary judgment to address
grounds other than those set forth in its Rule 56(d) motion, it 4 must
file any supplemental brief by September 1, 2011. Its supplemental
brief shall be limited to 15 5 pages. Plaintiffs shall have until
September 15, 2011 to file a reply that addresses SunTrust's Rule
56(d) argument, as well as any supplemental brief it files.
Plaintiffs' reply shall be limited to 20 7 pages. The hearing
presently scheduled on September 15, 2011 is vacated and oral argument
on 8 these consolidated motions shall be heard on September 29, 2011
at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom 3.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
