PLAINTIFFS' REQUEST TO VACATE OR CONTINUE CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE; PLAINTIFFS' CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE STATEMENT; [PROPOSED] ORDER THEREON
Date: March 2, 2012 Time: 9:00 a.m.
Ctrm: th 18 5, 17 Floor
Judge: The Honorable Edward M. Chen
Plaintiffs herein respectfully submit their Case Management Statement, requesting that the 21 Case Management Conference, currently on calendar for March 2, 2012, be vacated or continued 22 for approximately 90 days, pending Plaintiffs' filing their Motion for Summary Judgment. 23 1. As the Court's records will reflect, a Complaint was filed in this matter on June 2, 24 2011, to compel Defendant's compliance with the terms of its Collective Bargaining Agreement. 25 2. Substitute service on Defendant was effectuated on June 20, 2011, and a Proof of 26 Service of Summons and Declaration Re Diligence were filed with the Court on June 22, 2011. 27 3. On July 27, 2011, the Clerk entered the default of Defendant. On August 11, 2011, 28 the parties filed a Stipulation Setting Aside Default, and on August 15, 2011, the Court issued an Order setting aside that default.
4. On August 18, 2011, Defendant filed an Answer to the Complaint. 5. On November 10, 2011, the parties stipulated to Mediation, and on November 10, 2011, the Court issued an Order referring the case to Mediation. On February 13, 2012, the parties 5 were finally contacted by the appointed Mediator regarding a possible extension of the Mediation 6 deadline as the matter apparently "fell through the cracks" in the ADR office. I advised the 7 Mediator that counsel for defendant Quinones had advised me several times the he/his client are 8 4 "too busy" to focus on the litigation. Due to the Defendant's disinterest, Plaintiffs do not 9 anticipate resolution through Mediation. Accordingly, Plaintiffs have commenced preparation of a 10 Motion for Summary Judgment which they anticipate filing with the Court within the next forty-11 five to sixty days.
6. There are no issues that need to be addressed at the currently scheduled Case Management Conference. In the interest of conserving costs as well as the Court's time and 3 resources, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Case Management Conference, currently 4 scheduled for March 2, 2012, be vacated, or in the alternative be continued to either coincide with 5 the date to be set for the Motion or continued for 90 days to allow filing and disposition of the 6 Motion. 7
I declare under penalty of perjury that I am the attorney for the Plaintiffs in the above 8 entitled action, and that the foregoing is true of my own knowledge. 9 10
