Royal Dutch Petroleum (No. 10-1491)] and 7 [Mohamad v. Rajoub (No. 11-88)]." Kiobel and Mohamad involve legal issues potentially 8 relevant here. This Court's order set a case management conference for February 17, 2012. 9 2. 10 On February 8, 2012, the Parties filed a joint case management statement requesting a continuance of the February 17, 2012 Case Management Conference (“CMC”), in 11 light of Kiobel and Mohamad. This Court continued the CMC to March 23, 2012. 12 3. The Supreme Court heard oral argument in Kiobel and Mohamad on February 28, 13 2012. However, on March 5, 2012, the Supreme Court restored Kiobel to the calendar for 14 reargument and directed the parties in that case to file supplemental briefs. Oral argument is 15 expected to occur in the Fall Term of 2012. 16 4. Defendants have no new material developments to report. However, Plaintiffs 17 provide the following notifications: Plaintiffs have newly discovered evidence and, at an 18 appropriate time, will seek leave to amend their complaint to include new averments of fact. 19 5. In addition, the Parties disagree as to the timing of the CMC. Plaintiffs are 20 available to attend the CMC as scheduled for March 23, 2012, and do not seek a further 21 continuance. By contrast, in light of the Court’s order terminating Defendants’ motion to dismiss 22 pending Kiobel and Mohamad, Defendants request that the case management conference 23 scheduled for March 23, 2012 be adjourned to a date within 30 days after the Supreme Court 24 decides Kiobel and Mohamad. 25 /// 26 27 28 SCHWARCZ, RIMBERG, BOYD & RADER, LLP 6310 San Vicente Blvd Los Angeles, CA 90048 /// /// 2 JOINT CASE MANAGEMENT STATEMENT Case No. 5:11-cv-02449-EJD-PSGx 1 DATED: March 16, 2012 2 Respectfully submitted, SCHWARCZ, RIMBERG, BOYD & RADER, LLP 3 4 By: 5 6 /s/K.
