1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 AARON SENNE, et al., Case No. 14-cv-00608-JCS Plaintiffs, 8 v. 9 KANSAS CITY ROYALS BASEBALL CORP., et al., 11 United States District Court Northern District of California 10 ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR VENUE AND JURISDICTIONAL DISCOVERY Defendants. Re: Dkt. No. 143 12 13 14 15 Plaintiffs seek jurisdictional and venue discovery to oppose pending motions to dismiss for 16 lack of personal jurisdiction and to transfer venue to the Middle District of Florida. See Docket 17 No. 143 (joint discovery letter). The Court finds that the subject matter covered by Plaintiffs’ 18 document requests and interrogatories relating to jurisdiction and venue is, in general, appropriate 19 for discovery. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Plaintiffs’ request. The Court further finds, 20 however, that the parties have not seriously met and conferred as to the appropriate scope of the 21 venue and jurisdiction document requests and interrogatories. Accordingly, the parties are 22 directed to meet and confer to address this issue. The parties shall also negotiate: 1) a schedule 23 for the venue and jurisdictional discovery; 2) a new hearing date for the pending motions; and 3) 24 dates for filing the opposition and reply briefs on those motions. These dates shall be submitted to 25 the Court in the form of a stipulation. The hearing dates on the pending motions (docket nos. 115, 26 27 28 1 118 and 129) are vacated, as are the dates for filing the opposition and reply briefs on those 2 motions. 3 IT IS SO ORDERED. 4 5 6 7 Dated: June 27, 2014 ______________________________________ JOSEPH C.
