FOWLER PACKING COMPANY, INC., et al., No. 1:15-cv-00420-DAD-SAB ORDER GRANTING RELIEF FROM PAGE LIMITATIONS AND EXTENDING DEADLINE FOR FILING REPLY BRIEF (Doc. No. 143) Defendants. On January 26, 2017, the parties to this action filed a stipulation seeking relief from the 18 applicable page limitations with respect to briefing related to the motion for class certification in 19 this matter. (Doc. No. 143.) Specifically, the parties have requested the page limit for the 20 opening brief and opposition brief be expanded to sixty-five (65) pages, and the page limit for the 21 reply brief be expanded to twenty-five (25) pages. The parties have also requested that plaintiffs 22 be granted an extension of time of seven (7) days to file their reply brief on or before March 20, 23 2017. These extensions are necessary because of the size of this motion, plaintiffs having alleged 24 twelve separate causes of action and seeking certification of twelve distinct subclasses, all of 25 which would contain hundreds or thousands of workers. (Doc. No. 143 at 2.) 26 Good cause having been shown, 27 1. The opening brief for plaintiffs’ motion for class certification shall be no more than 28 sixty-five (65) pages in length; 1 1 2 2. The opposition brief in connection with the motion shall be no more than sixty-five (65) pages in length; 3 3. The reply brief shall be no more than twenty-five (25) pages in length; and 4 4.
