ORDER DENYING DENFENDANTS' MOTION TO SHORTEN TIME
Defendants filed a motion to dismiss the First Amended complaint on October 11, 2012.
ECF No. 33. Without authorization from the undersigned judge's courtroom deputy, Defendants noticed their motion for November 15, 2012. However, the undersigned judge's scheduling procedures, as explained on the Court's website and in the San Jose Judges' Standing Order, require parties to contact the courtroom deputy when they wish to notice a motion; the courtroom deputy then assigns the parties to the next available hearing date.
Accordingly, the motion was continued to the Court's next available date of February 21, 2013, the date Defendants would have been given had they followed the Court's established scheduling procedures, and Defendants were advised of the reason for the continuance. ECF No. 34.
Defendants have now filed a motion to shorten time, asking that the
unauthorized date they
had noticed be restored. This is not possible, as the Court's
schedule is full, and is contrary to the
Court's procedures that have been established to ensure fairness to
all litigants. Accordingly,
Defendants' motion to shorten time is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
