In support of this motion, Gibson Guitar Corp. states that this is a patent infringement case filed a few days before another action Gibson Guitar Corp. filed in this court involving the same patent, Gibson Guitar Corp. v. Harmonix, et al, No. 3:08-0294. The Case Management Conference in the Harmonix case has been scheduled for May 12, 2008 at 10:30 a.m. Because Gibson Guitar Corp. will have out-of-state counsel (who will soon seek pro hac vice admission) appearing for both of these conferences, Gibson Guitar Corp. requests that the Case Management Conference for the above styled case be moved to May 12, 2008 to avoid additional travel expense, and in light of other conflicting obligations that make appearing on April 28, 2008 difficult.
