(Doc. 36) The stipulation seeks to delay this filing until 19 December 1, 2014, which is about two weeks after the deadline by which absent class members may 20 file a claim. (Doc. 33 at 18) It is also about two weeks after objections to the final approval of the 21 settlement—which includes a determination of the attorneys fees and costs—are due. Thus, granting 22 the stipulation would deprive the class members of their opportunity to object to the fee/cost petition; 23 this would be improper. Therefore, the stipulation (Doc. 36) is DENIED. 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: October 16, 2014 /s/ Jennifer L. Thurston UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
