CANE CREEK CYCLING COMPONENTS, INC., Defendant.
Robert F. McCauley, (SBN 162056), Jeffrey D. Smyth, (SBN 280665) FINNEGAN, HENDERSON, FARABOW, GARRETT & DUNNER, LLP, Palo Alto, California. Attorneys for Plaintiffs Fox Factory, Inc., and Fox Factory Holding Corp.
UNOPPOSED ADMINISTRATIVE REQUEST TO RESCHEDULE CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE;
DECLARATION OF ROBERT F. MCCAULEY;
SAUNDRA B. ARMSTRONG, District Judge.
Plaintiffs Fox Factory, Inc. and Fox Factory Holding Corp. ("Fox") respectfully request that the Court reschedule the Initial Case Management Conference ("CMC") in this case, currently set for January 8, 2014, to February 5, 2014, at a time convenient for the Court. Counsel for Defendant Cane Creek Cycling Components, Inc. ("Cane Creek") has advised that Cane Creek does not oppose Fox's request to continue the Initial CMC. The Court previously rescheduled the CMC from November 27, 2013, to January 8, 2014, in view of settlement discussions.
On December 24, 2013, the parties filed a Stipulation and Proposed Order requesting additional time, until January 23, 2014, for Fox to formally serve the Complaint. As stated in that Stipulation, the parties have engaged in earnest settlement negotiations, have agreed in correspondence upon basic terms for settlement, and have exchanged at least one draft settlement agreement. To allow those discussions to continue and possibly resolve this action without further involvement of the Court, Fox respectfully requests (and Cane Creek does not oppose) that the CMC be continued to February 5, 2014. Deferring the CMC would provide the parties additional time to finalize and execute their settlement agreement.
Fox also requests that the following deadlines be reset as provided below:
