UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 25, 2013
THE REDD GROUP, LLC, ET AL., PLAINTIFFS,
THE GLASS GURU FRANCHISE SYSTEMS, INC., ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Jon S. Tigar United States District Judge
ORDER RE: LETTER SEEKING CLARIFICATION Re: Dkt. No. 30
The Court has received the letter from defendant's counsel dated April 19, 2013. ECF No. 30. The letter appears not to have been copied to other counsel and not to constitute a joint 15 request. The Court is prohibited from considering an ex parte contact from any party or lawyer in 16 a proceeding. Code of Conduct for United States Judges, Canon 3(A)(4). Accordingly, the Court 17 takes no action with regard to the letter. 18
If the parties are unclear about the obligations imposed by the Court's April 16 minute 19 order, they should meet and confer and, if that process does not eliminate any confusion, either 20 submit a joint stipulation and proposed order, or jointly seek the court's guidance by ex parte 21 application. 22
IT IS SO ORDERED.
