STIPULATION AND ORDER REGARDING BRIEFING SCHEDULE AND HEARING DATE ON MOTION TO STRIKE FILED BY PLAINTIFF AND COUNTER-DEFENDANT ACTUATE CORPORATION; DECLARATION OF JAN J. KLOHONATZ
By this stipulation and order the parties to the above-captioned action respectfully request (a) that the hearing on the Motion to Strike filed by plaintiff and counter-defendant Actuate Corporation ("Actuate's Motion"), currently set to be heard on February 3, 2012, be reset to be heard on December 16, 2011, at the same time the parties appear for the Preliminary Pretrial Conference in this case, and (b) that the briefing schedule in connection with Actuate's Motion be modified as set forth below. There is no trial date in this case and the only dates currently on the Court's calendar are the Preliminary Pretrial Conference set for December 16, 2011 and the hearing on Actuate's Motion set for February 3, 2012.
Accordingly, the parties stipulate as follows:
WHEREAS, pursuant to stipulated order, defendant and counter-claimant Finiti Group, LLC ("Finiti") filed its First Amended Answer to Complaint and Counter-Claims on October 6, 2011;
WHEREAS, on October 27, 2011 plaintiff and counter-defendant Actuate Corporation ("Actuate") filed Actuate's Motion, at which time Actuate's counsel was advised that the next available hearing date on the Court's calendar would be February 3, 2012;
WHEREAS, the parties currently are set to appear before the Court on December 16, 2011 for a Preliminary Pretrial Conference and would like to have Actuate's Motion heard at the same time;
WHEREAS, the parties have agreed that the briefing schedule on Actuate's Motion be modified and that Finiti's opposition be due on November 21, 2011 and that Actuate's reply be due on December 2, 2011, such that the motion will be fully briefed two weeks before the hearing as contemplated by the Local Rules of the Northern District of California;
WHEREAS, the hearing date for Actuate's Motion and the briefing schedule for that motion have not previously been modified;
WHEREAS, the time modifications requested in this stipulation and order will not have a material effect on the schedule of the case because (a) a trial date has not yet been set; and (b) there are only two dates currently on the Court's calendar -- the December 16, 2011 Preliminary Pretrial Conference, which will not be affected as the parties are not asking to move that date, and the February 3, 2012 hearing on Actuate's Motion, which the parties are asking be moved to an earlier date;
NOW, THEREFORE, WITH GOOD CAUSE APPEARING, the parties, by and through their respective counsel, hereby stipulate and agree (a) that the hearing on Actuate's Motion, 6 currently set to be heard on February 3, 2012, be reset to be heard on December 16, 2011, at the 7 same time the parties appear for the Preliminary Pretrial Conference in this case; and (b) that the 8 briefing schedule on Actuate's Motion be modified so that Finiti's opposition is due on 9 November 21, 2011 and Actuate's reply is due on December 2, 2011.
