The parties' stipulation and the recently terminated defense motions demonstrate the parties' clear failure to understand and discourtesy for this Court's management of the heaviest district judge caseload in the nation. This Court's November 15, 2012 order set dates to best accommodate the parties and this Court's calendar. As such, the joint pretrial statement filing deadline and pretrial conference remain as set in the November 15, 2012 order. This Court ORDERS the parties, no later than January 4, 2013, to file and serve their respective trial briefs. This Court will set other dates at the pretrial conference.
