We are writing with the consent ofattorneys for Defendants and for Intervenors to request permission for the Plaintiffs to file a 15-page reply brief in connection with Plaintiffs' motion for Partial Judgment on the Pleadings. Plaintiffs' reply is due May 11 and oral argument has been scheduled for May 17. The reason for this request is that separate opening briefs have been filed by Defendants and by Intervenors. In addition, counsel for the American Library Association, the Association of College and Research Libraries, and the Association of Research Libraries has filed a motion to file an amicus brief on this issue, which we do not intend to oppose. Our proposal is that we would file a single I5-page reply to all of the opposing briefs filed on this motion. Thank you for your consideration.
