WHEREAS, on November 19, 2008, the parties filed a Joint Motion to Extend Dates in Case Management Order and to Continue Trial with this Court (Dkt. No. 138) and noticed it for hearing on December 4, 2008, at 8:00 a.m.; 1 WHEREAS, counsel for the parties were under the mistaken impression that Paragraph 6 of the 2 Court's Supplemental Case Management Order permitted motions (in particular, agreed ones) to be 3 noticed for hearing less than 35 days from the date of their service; 4 WHEREAS, the Court's calendar indicates, however, that this Motion was not properly 5 noticed; 6 WHEREAS, the parties wish to correct any procedural defects associated with the noticing of 7 this Motion; 8 ACCORDINGLY, Plaintiffs American Council of the Blind, et al., and Defendants Michael 9 Astrue, et al., pursuant to Civil Local Rule 6-2, hereby STIPULATE to shortening the time under Civil 10 Local Rule 7-2(a) for the hearing on the parties' Motion on the following grounds: 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 STIPULATION TO SHORTEN TIME AND [PROPOSED] ORDER Case No. C 05-04696 WHA DM_US:21626094_1 The standard 35-day notice period, which permits the filing of oppositions and replies before the parties are heard in court, is unnecessary in this instance because the parties are making the Motion jointly and no oppositions or replies will therefore be filed. The parties would like to waive the standard 35-day notice period because they are seeking immediate relief from upcoming deadlines in the current Case Management Scheduling Order that are already unworkable in light of changed circumstances (as explained in the Motion). The only time modification made in this case since the entry of the current Case Management Scheduling Order is an extension of the deadline for Defendants to respond to Plaintiffs' Second Amended Complaint (Dkt. No. 95). Shortening the time to hear the parties' Motion alone will have no effect on other deadlines in the current Case Management Scheduling Order. Justice and efficiency would be best served by having the parties' Motion noticed and heard on an expedited schedule, i.e., on December 4, 2008, at 8:00 a.m., as currently calendared. -2- 1 Dated: November 26, 2008 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 STIPULATION TO SHORTEN TIME AND [PROPOSED] ORDER Case No. C 05-04696 WHA DM_US:21626094_1 Respectfully submitted, By: /s/ Henry C.
