January 30, 2013
WILLIAM RAY JONES, SR.,
LEHIGH SOUTHWEST CEMENT COMPANY, INC., A CALIFORNIA CORPORATION; AND DOES 1-50, DEFENDANT.
ORDER VACATING HEARING DATE OF
FEBRUARY 4, 2013, AND GRANTING 30-DAY CONTINUATION OF DATE
OF SUBMISSION OF DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO DISMISS Doc. # 53
In this action for damages by plaintiff William Ray Jones, Sr. ("Plaintiff") against defendant Lehigh Southwest Cement Company ( "Defendant"), Defendant has noticed a motion to dismiss Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure . The matter was scheduled for oral argument to be held on February 4, 2013. On January 24, 2013, Plaintiff filed a request for extension of time to engage legal assistance. The court presumes that it was Plaintiff's intent to also request a continuance of oral argument on Defendant's motion to dismiss. The court has reviewed Plaintiff's First Amended Complaint and Defendant's motion to dismiss and has determined that the motion to dismiss is suitable for decision without oral argument. Local Rule 78-230(h). The court is also of the opinion that neither party would be prejudiced by a 30-day stay in the date of submission of the matter.
Therefore, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the previously set hearing date of February 4, 2013, is VACATED, and no party shall appear at that time. The Court will take the matter under submission as of February 26, 2013. Any opposition to Defendant's motion to dismiss must be filed on or before February 26, 2013. The court will not issue any further continuances.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
