UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 19, 2011
BRIAN BUTTERWORTH, INDIVIDUALLY, AND ON BEHALF OF ALL OTHER MEMBERS OF THE GENERAL PUBLIC SIMILARLY SITUATED, PLAINTIFF,
AMERICAN EAGLE OUTFITTERS, INC., A DELAWARE CORPORATION; AND DOES 1 THROUGH 10, INCLUSIVE,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING JOINT MOTION FOR LEAVE TO EXCEED THE PAGE LIMITATION FOR DEFENDANT'S BRIEF IN OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO REMAND AND PLAINTIFF'S REPLY BRIEF
On September 14, 2011, Pursuant to the Standing Order in All Civil Cases Assigned to District Judge Lawrence J. O'Neill, Plaintiff Brian Butterworth ("Plaintiff") and Defendant American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. ("American Eagle") filed a joint motion for leave to exceed the 25 page limitation set forth in the Court's Standing Order with respect to American Eagle's Brief in Opposition to Plaintiff's Motion to Remand for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction and to exceed the ten page limitation set forth in the Court's Standing Order with respect to Reply Brief in Support of Plaintiff's Motion to Remand. American Eagle believes that absent a five-page enlargement of the page limit to thirty pages, it will not be able to adequately present its Opposition and will be forced to leave fundamental issues necessary to the Court's proper understanding and resolution of the motion to remain unaddressed. Plaintiff and American Eagle also jointly moved this Court for a five page extension of the page limitation with respect to Plaintiff's reply brief, such that Plaintiff can address the arguments set forth in American Eagle's extended brief.
Good cause appearing, the joint motion is GRANTED. It is hereby ordered:
1. American Eagle is granted leave to file a Brief in Opposition to Plaintiff's Motion to Remand for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction not to exceed thirty (30) pages; and
2. Plaintiff is granted leave to file a Reply Brief in Support of Plaintiff's Motion to Remand not to exceed fifteen (15) pages.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
