California Public Utilities Commission, Defendants. ____________________________________/ No. C 13-04934 RS ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR ADMINISTRATIVE RELIEF FOR ORDER PERMITTING APPEARANCE TELEPHONICALLY AT THE JANUARY 23, 2014 HEARING ON DEFENDANT’S MOTION TO DISMISS Plaintiff’s motion for administrative relief for an order permitting it to appear telephonically at the January 23, 2014 hearing on defendant’s motion to dismiss is denied. In this court’s experience, telephonic hearings on substantive motions are no substitute for oral argument where counsel are physically present and often entail the problem of all participants talking over each other. In the event that both parties request the submission of the motion without oral argument, the court will consider that request. IT IS SO ORDERED. 24 25 26 27 28 DATED: January 6, 2014 _______________________________ RICHARD SEEBORG United States District Judge ORDER
