The Order Requiring Joint Status Report provides that any briefs filed prior to the issuance of the Pretrial (Status) Scheduling Order shall not exceed twenty (20) pages. Because of the complexity of the constitutional issues of this case, and the fact that Count I of Plaintiffs' Complaint is extremely fact intensive, it is necessary to set forth the facts establishing that Defendants violated Plaintiffs' First and Fourteenth Amendment rights and exceed the Court's page limit. Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Court accept the brief as submitted and would not object to the Court's similarly extending the page limit for a brief by Defendants. A proposed order is attached. Respectfully submitted, ___/S/_Timothy D. Chandler____________ Timothy D. Chandler (Cal.
