Defendants shall, by no later than Friday, May 24, 2013, file either a joint 8 statement setting forth an agreed-upon allocation for fiscal year 2013-2014, or, if no 9 agreement has been reached, separate opening briefs setting forth their respective positions 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 with respect to an appropriate allocation. 5.

The Court shall hold a hearing on the allocation issue, if necessary, on Monday, 15 June 17, 2013, at 10:00AM. 16 17 COURT MONITOR’S COMPENSATION 18 Additionally, the Court finds that it is appropriate to raise the Court Monitor’s salary, 19 currently set at $1050.00 per day, which has not been raised since July 2010. Effective 20 immediately, the Court Monitor’s compensation is hereby raised to $1200 per day. 21 22 IT IS SO ORDERED. 23 24 25 Dated: 26 02/19/2013 THELTON E.
