STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER TO ADJUST OPENING CLAIM CONSTRUCTION BRIEFING DEADLINE
WHEREAS, on July 31, 2012, this Court entered a Status (Pretrial Scheduling) Order (D.I. 22) setting forth a case schedule in this action between Plaintiff Advanced Steel Recovery, LLC ("ASR") and Defendants X-Body Equipment, Inc. ("X-Body") and Jewell Attachments, LLC ("Jewell") (collectively "Defendants").
WHEREAS, the current deadline for the parties to file simultaneous opening claim construction briefs is Monday May 20, 2013.
WHEREAS, the parties have been engaging in good-faith settlement discussions in an effort to resolve this matter in the immediate future.
WHEREAS, the parties believe that the possibility of realizing a resolution to this matter would be increased if the current deadline for opening claim construction briefs, currently due on May 20, 2013, was extended by two (2) weeks to June 3, 2013.
WHEREAS, the parties agreed amongst themselves to extend the deadline for opening claim construction briefs by two (2) weeks to June 3, 2013 and request that the Court grant such an extension.
WHEREAS, the parties have not previously requested an extension of this deadline. WHEREAS, such an extension would promote judicial economy and allow the Court to conserve valuable resources, including the time and effort of its staff.
WHEREAS, the parties believe that such an extension of the deadline will also conserve the parties' time and resources by allowing them to continue exploring viable opportunities to resolve this matter in good faith.
WHEREAS, such an extension will not affect the remainder of the pre-trial schedule, including the deadline for responsive claim construction briefs due June 17, 2013, the technology tutorial scheduled for June 17, 2013, and the claim construction hearing scheduled for July 29, 2013.
NOW, THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED that the deadline for each party to file simultaneous opening claim construction briefs and supporting evidence shall be extended to Monday, June 3, 2013.
