The 21 Court will hear argument on the Daubert motions (ECF Nos. 559, 565, and 570), the motion to 22 strike portions of Dr. Leamer’s rebuttal expert report (ECF No. 557), and the joint motion for 23 summary judgment (ECF No. 556) on March 27, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. The Case Management 24 Conference currently set for March 20, 2014 at 1:30 p.m. is CONTINUED to March 27, 2014 at 25 1:30 p.m. The parties shall submit a joint case management by March 20, 2014 at noon. 26 The Court finds that a reminder notice would be appropriate under the circumstances of the 27 instant case, particularly in light of the issues with the Claims Administrator’s email addresses. 28 However, the Court agrees with Defendants that any reminder notice should be uniform and flag 1 Case No.: 11-CV-02509-LHK ORDER RE: DISTRIBUTION OF ARGUMENT ON PENDING MOTIONS AND REMINDER CLASS NOTICE 1 the issue regarding the problems with the email address. Moreover, the Court finds that an 2 extension of the deadline to respond to the notice is appropriate in light of the delayed reminder 3 notice. The Court therefore extends all the March 19, 2014 deadlines to respond to the notice to 4 March 26, 2014. 5 Accordingly, the Claims Administrator shall send the reminder notice proposed by 6 Defendants (ECF No. 727, Ex. C), with the following modifications: (1) All references to March 7 19, 2014 shall be changed to March 26, 2014; and (2) One sentence shall be added at the end of the 8 first paragraph that states “The Court has extended the deadline to respond to the Notice from 9 March 19, 2014 to March 26, 2014.” The Claims Administrator shall use regular letter-sized paper United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 and disseminate the reminder notice via U.S. mail by no later than March 13, 2014. 11 12 IT IS SO ORDERED. 13 Dated: March 10, 2014 _________________________________ LUCY H.
