IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 18, 2013
KAREN Y. KIRBY, PLAINTIFF,
JERRY BROWN, ET AL.,
Plaintiff has this afternoon filed an amended complaint, a request for a temporary restraining order (TRO) and a preliminary injunction. Plaintiff's papers do not disclose time-sensitive harm such as would preclude the court from scheduling a hearing for the earliest practicable date of next week.
Plaintiff seeks leave to appear at the TRO hearing by telephone. Pursuant to the court's normal practice, plaintiff will not be heard telephonically at the hearing.
Accordingly, the court orders as follows:
1. A hearing on plaintiff's request for a TRO is hereby scheduled for Thursday, January 24, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. in Courtroom 4.
2. Defendants shall file their response to the TRO request no later than Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 12:00 noon.
3. If plaintiff chooses not to appear in person at the hearing, she may appear through additional papers, not to exceed fifteen (15) pages, in total (including exhibits and attachments), in lieu of a personal appearance.*fn1 Such papers, if any, shall be filed no later than Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at 12:00 noon.
