A&S METALS OF LOS BANOS, INC., A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION, AND STANLEY G. SILVA, JR., AN INDIVIDUAL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Judge: Hon. Mag. Judge Dennis L. Beck
PLAINTIFF'S ADMINISTRATIVE REQUEST TO APPEAR BY TELEPHONE AT INITIAL STATUS CONFERENCE; AND, ORDER THEREON Date: February 14, 2012 Time: 9:30 AM Dept.: Courtroom No. 9
Request is hereby made that counsel for Plaintiff California Sportfishing Protection Alliance be permitted to appear telephonically at the initial status conference scheduled for February 14, 2012 at 9:30 a.m. in this matter.
This request is made to minimize legal fees and costs. The offices of Plaintiff's lead counsel are in Petaluma, California, some 220 miles from the courthouse. Consequently, travel time to and from the Court, including parking would require approximately four and one half hours. In addition, to avoid fees for counsel's travel time, appearance by phone will avoid costs in the form of mileage charges and tolls. Finally, appearance by phone will reduce the carbon footprint of the initial status conference.
Counsel for Plaintiff, Emily J. Brand, may be reached at (707) 762-8207 on the date of the initial status conference.
Dated: January 24, 2012 Respectfully Submitted, LAW OFFICES OF ANDREW L. PACKARD By: __//s//_Emily J. Brand _____________ Emily J. Brand Attorneys for Plaintiff CALIFORNIA SPORTFISHING PROTECTION ALLIANCE
Good cause appearing therefor, Plaintiff's administrative request to appear by telephone at the initial status conference scheduled for February 14, 2012, at 9:30 a.m., is Granted
IT IS SO ORDERED.
