U.S. EQUAL EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITY COMMISSION, PLAINTIFF,
SUTTER TRANSFER SERVICE, INC. AND FIVEWAY, LLC DEFENDANTS.
JOINT STIPULATION AND ORDER
Complaint Filed: 09/29/12 First Amended Complaint Filed:05/10/12
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (hereinafter "EEOC")
filed a First Amended Complaint on May 10, 2012, naming, for the first time,
FIVEWAY, LLC (hereinafter "FIVEWAY") as an additional Defendant to this action.*fn1
[Docket No. 17] Since that time, the parties
have resumed previously suspended settlement discussions with an eye
towards resolving this matter
without formal court intervention. The parties have made significant
progress with those discussions.
However, a final and complete agreement has not been reached. The parties are still working towards that end. To allow the parties sufficient time to complete those discussions and further the settlement efforts, the parties hereby stipulate and respectfully request that the Court continue the deadline for FIVEWAY to respond to the First Amended Complaint. Doing so will further the parties' settlement efforts by allowing FIVEWAY to focus its limited resources on resolving this matter rather than incurring the legal costs associated with challenging this matter at the pleadings stage. Therefore, the parties stipulate and respectfully request that the Court:
1. Continue the deadline for FIVEWAY, LLC to respond to the First Amended Complaint to August 30, 2012.
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
