The opinion of the court was delivered by: Chief Magistrate Judge Maria-Elena James
STIPULATION & REQUEST TO EXTEND DEADLINE
Plaintiffs and Defendants respectfully request that the Court extend the deadline to hold an ADR session from July 15, 2012 to August 11, 2012. This is the parties' second request for 23 an extension. Although they have attempted to schedule the mediation session, because one of 24 the defendants has a new job and the others are unable to attend on the dates available, the parties are unable to schedule the mediation before the deadline. Given the number of parties 2 involved, obtaining a mutually available date has been difficult, but the parties, their attorneys, 3 and the mediator are committed to reschedule the mediation session as soon as possible. 4
Counsel for both parties believe that mediation may be fruitful, and they are engaging in 5 informal settlement discussions, but they would appreciate this extension to insure that the 6 mediation session will take place should informal discussions not result in a resolution of the 7 dispute. 8
Trial is not scheduled until March 4, 2013; however, five deadlines will be affected by 9 the extension of the mediation deadline. As a result, the parties also respectfully request that 10 Action Current Deadline Proposed Deadline
