STIPULATION TO CONTINUE PRE-TRIAL DATES; [PROPOSED ORDER]
GARY S. AUSTIN, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiffs David Lozano and Jazmin Rivas ("Plaintiffs"), and Defendant United States ("United States"), stipulate, by and through the undersigned counsel, to extend the discovery deadlines in this action to allow for the parties to engage in further settlement negotiations. The date for filing dispositive motions is affected by this stipulation, but not the pre-trial conference or the trial dates.
The parties agree to a short extension of the dates to allow the parties to engage in a further settlement conference with the Honorable Judge Thurston on December 5, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. The parties submit that this request is being made for good cause to allow the parties time to meaningfully explore settlement in furtherance of the initial settlement conference on October 16, 2013, and prior to extensive discovery, depositions and pre-trial disclosures. The stipulation provides a change of approximately a month to the dispositive motion deadline, without changing the pre-trial conference or trial dates.
Accordingly, the parties stipulate and agree to continue the following dates, and base it on the above-stated good cause.
Having reviewed the stipulation submitted by the parties, the dates are continued as referenced above. All other dates set in this Court's scheduling order issued on March 20, 2013 (Doc. 8), remain in full force and effect. The parties are advised that in the event that this case does not settle, Judge Ishii may continue the pretrial conference and the trial date in this matter because the new deadline for filing dispositive motions is very close to the pretrial conference date.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
