Plaintiff Michael Rodman ("Plaintiff") and defendant Safeway Inc. ("Safeway"), by 2 and through their counsel, stipulate as follows: 3
1. On February 11, 2013, this case was reassigned from the Hon. Jeffrey S. 4 White to the Hon. John S. Tigar (Dkt. No. 91).
2. Pursuant to the Court's Reassignment Order, the parties filed a joint case 6 management statement (Dkt. No. 95) on February 26, 2013. 7
3. On March 12, 2013, subsequent to parties filing their joint case management 8 conference statement, the Court ordered that the parties to appear for a case management 9 conference on April 2, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. (Dkt. No. 96). 10
4. Prior to receiving the Court's order setting the April 2, 2013 case 11 management conference, lead counsel for Safeway was scheduled to travel to China for 12 work purposes. As a result, counsel for Safeway will be traveling in China the week 13 before the currently scheduled April 2, 2013 case management conference. In addition, 14 Safeway's lead counsel has previously scheduled meetings in Los Angeles the week of his 15 return, including on April 2, 2013. Counsel for Safeway is concerned that he will lack 16 sufficient time to prepare for and attend the case management conference as a result of his 17 travels in China and the scheduled meetings. 18
5. Given the unforeseen travel issues arising out of the currently scheduled 19 April 2, 2013 case management conference, the parties stipulate -- subject to the Court's 20 approval -- to continuing the April 2, 2013 case management conference one week, to April 21 9, 2012, or a date thereafter convenient to the Court. 22
