Plaintiff V. INTERNATIONAL BROTHERHOOD OF TEAMSTERS, ET AL. Defendants ORDER REGARDING DECEMBER 16, 2010 HEARING By order entered December 2, 2010, the Court granted a hearing on the motion to dismiss submitted by separate defendants YRC, Inc., New Penn Motor Express, Inc., and USF Holland, Inc. (collectively, "employer defendants"). As stated in the order, the Court finds that a hearing will help the Court determine whether Plaintiff ABF Freight System, Inc. ("ABF") has standing or whether the question of standing is severable from the merits of ABF's claims. The Court notes that separate defendants International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the Teamsters National Freight Industry Negotiating Committee, Teamsters Local Union 373, and Teamsters Local Union 878 (collectively, "union defendants") and separate defendant Trucking Management, Inc. ("TMI") have filed separate motions to dismiss, in which they also assert that ABF lacks standing. However, neither the union defendants nor TMI have requested a hearing, and the hearing scheduled for December 16, 2010 pertains solely to the employer defendants' motion to dismiss. IT IS THEREFORE ordered that if defendant TMI or the union defendants wish to be heard at the December 16, 2010 hearing, they must notify the Court on or before December 13, 1 * * * * * * * * * NO: 2:10CV02165 SWW Dockets.Justia.com 2010.
