STIPULATION TO STAY PROCEEDINGS PENDING MEDIATION Judge: Hon. John A. Mendez 27 28 LEGAL_US_W # 80253294.1 STIPULATION TO STAY U.S.D.C., E.D. Cal., No. 2:14-CV-01961 JAM EFB 1 2 3 Plaintiff Bruce Kaufman and defendant Rite Aid Corporation (“Rite Aid”), acting through their respective counsel of record, hereby stipulate as follows: 1. On October 22, 2014, Rite Aid moved to stay this action pending the proceedings in 4 Romero v. Rite Aid Corp., U.S.D.C., C.D. Cal., No. CV 13-7720-MWF (JEMx) (“Romero”), a putative 5 class action in which the plaintiff alleges that Rite Aid has misclassified salaried Store Managers in 6 California as exempt from the overtime pay and related requirements of California law. Rite Aid moved 7 to stay this action on the grounds, inter alia, that Rite Aid would suffer prejudice as a result of litigating 8 Romero—a large putative class action that threatens to bring in the claims of every exempt Store 9 Manager in California—while simultaneously litigating the merits of plaintiff’s individual claims here, 10 particularly in light of the fact that plaintiff is a putative class member in Romero and that the plaintiff in 11 Romero is represented by the same counsel who represent plaintiff here. 12 2. The hearing on Rite Aid’s motion to stay currently is set for November 19, 2014. Based 13 on this hearing date, the deadline for plaintiff’s opposition to Rite Aid’s motion is November 5, 2014; 14 Rite Aid’s reply in support of its motion must be filed by November 12, 2014. 15 16 17 3. Since Rite Aid filed its motion to stay, the parties have engaged in discussions regarding potential mediation of plaintiff’s claims and have agreed to mediate the claims on January 13, 2015. 4. Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that the Court: (1) vacate the November 19, 18 2014, hearing on Rite Aid’s motion to stay; (2) stay all proceedings in this action until January 27, 2015; 19 and (3) order the parties to file a status report within 21 days after the expiration of the stay. 20 21 22 5. By entering into this stipulation, the parties waive no position that they have taken or could have taken with respect to the appropriateness of a further stay of this action.
