ORDER CONTINUING ADR DEADLINES AND CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE [Re: Docket No. 6]
In November 2011, plaintiffs Unisense Fertilizer A/S and Fertilitech, Inc. (collectively, "Fertilitech") requested that the court vacate or continue all case management deadlines to allow 19 plaintiffs time to effect service of the complaint on defendants. Dkt. No. 4. The court granted that 20 request in its Order of November 14, 2011. Dkt. No. 5 All parties, including the defendants, now 21 move for a further continuance of all deadlines because defendants still have not been served and the 22 parties appear to be conducting settlement negotiations. See Dkt. No. 6. The court reminds the 23 plaintiffs that they may dismiss this action in its entirety should they wish to resolve this matter 24 without court involvement. A further continuance will be GRANTED, but parties are advised that 25 the court may not look favorably upon another similar request. 26
