However, the parties have not filed the required joint statement. 21 In this regard, Local Rule 251(a) provides that at least seven days prior to the hearing of a 22 discovery motion, a “Joint Statement re Discovery Disagreement” shall be filed. “All arguments 23 and briefing that would otherwise be included in a memorandum of points and authorities 24 supporting or opposing the motion shall be included in this joint statement, and no separate 25 briefing shall be filed.” Local Rule 251(c). If counsel for the moving party is unable, “after a 26 good faith effort, to secure the cooperation of counsel for the opposing party in . . . preparing and 27 executing the required joint statement, counsel for the moving party may file and serve an 28 affidavit so stating . . . .” Local Rule 251(d). 1 1 Here, no joint statement has been filed.

Joint statements filed before the 6 undersigned shall not exceed twenty-five pages, excluding exhibits, as explained in the 7 undersigned’s Standard Information re discovery disputes set forth on the court’s web page. See 8 9 judge-deborah-barnes-db The hearing of a discovery dispute “may be dropped from the calendar without prejudice 10 11 if the Joint Statement re Discovery Disagreement” is not filed at least seven days prior to the 12 noticed hearing date. Local Rule 251(a). In light of the parties’ failure to cooperate on, and 13 timely file, a joint statement the undersigned will continue the hearing of plaintiff’s motion to 14 compel. 15 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 16 1. The December 1, 2017 hearing of plaintiff’s motion to compel (ECF No. 37) is 17 continued to Friday, December 22, 2017, at 10:00 a.m., at the United States District Court, 501 I 18 Street, Sacramento, California, in Courtroom No. 27, before the undersigned; and 19 //// 20 //// 21 //// 22 //// 23 //// 24 //// 25 //// 26 1 27 28 Due to the unavailability of the Clerk’s Office on November 24, 2017, the deadline for the parties’ to file their joint statement was November 27, 2017, pursuant to Rule 6 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. “Filings via CM/ECF may be made twenty-four hours a day” pursuant to Local Rule 134(b). 2 1 2.
