STIPULATION AND ORDER CONFIRMING UNDISPUTED ATTORNEYS' FEES AND COSTS FOR THIRD QUARTER, 2011
On July 8, 2004, this Court established procedures by which plaintiffs are to collect 2 periodic attorneys' fees and costs in this case in connection with their work monitoring 3 defendants' compliance with the Court's Orders and collecting fees. 4
Pursuant to these procedures, plaintiffs sent their Quarterly Statement for the Third Quarter of 2011, covering the period of July 1, 2011 -- September 30, 2011 to defendants 6 via overnight Federal Express on October 27, 2011. Defendants submitted their objections 7 to plaintiffs' statement on December 6, 2011. The parties completed their meet and confer 8 on December 19, 2011, and reached an agreement as to most of the hours and all of the 9 costs incurred in this quarter. 10
Pursuant to the July 8, 2004 Order, ¶ 4, the parties will defer and hold in abeyance 11 the dispute over the remaining hours that are not settled through this Stipulation (a total of 12 $91,797 in fees that Defendants have objected to as related to the pending Proposition 9 13 motions) until they are settled or a yearly motion to compel payment is brought following 14 the meet and confer covering the fourth quarter of 2011.
The parties agree that $593,156.74 of fees and costs incurred during the Third Quarter of 2011 are undisputed. (A summary of the fees and costs, reflecting the fees at 3 2011 rates, is attached hereto as Exhibit A.) WHEREFORE, IT IS CONFIRMED that 4 $593,156.74 plus interest accruing at the rate provided by 28 U.S.C. § 1961 is due and 5 collectable as of forty-five days from the date of entry of this Order. 6
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
