OFFICERS A. McNACK, et al. Defendants. CASE NO. C-06-4837 EMC STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER EXTENDING TIME TO MOVE AND/OR APPLY FOR ATTORNEYS' FEES AND COSTS Hon. Edward M. Chen . WEST\21975346.1 STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER EXTENDING TIME TO MOVE AND/OR APPLY FOR ATTORNEYS' FEES/COSTS - CASE NO. C-06-4837 EMC 1 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 DLA PIPER LLP (US) EAST PALO A L T O Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 6-2(a), Plaintiff Mr. Gordon Simpson ("Mr. Simpson") and Defendant Officer Nguyen submit this Stipulation to continue all deadlines for motions and/or applications for attorneys' fees and costs under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 54, 42 U.S.C. 1983 and any other applicable rule or statute. Specifically, the parties request an order continuing the deadline for all motions seeking attorneys' fees or costs until twenty-one (21) days after the resolution of Officer Nguyen's motion for qualified immunity and motion for judgment as a matter of law. Good cause exists for extending the time to move or apply for attorneys' fees and costs. If Officer Nguyen prevails on either of his post-trial motions, briefing on fees and costs would in all likelihood be unnecessary and moot. Moreover, continuing all deadlines to apply or move for attorneys' fees and costs would avoid the potential situation where Mr. Simpson would have to file two separate motions for fees and costs one on May 28, 2010 (the current deadline for such motions) and one following the resolution of Officer Nguyen's post-trial motions. The parties submit that briefing attorneys' fees and costs twice would result in the unnecessary consumption of the parties' resources and the Court's resources, particularly when substantive post-trial motions have yet to be decided. Accordingly, the parties respectfully request that the Court issue an Order continuing all deadlines for motions and applications for attorneys' fees and costs until twenty-one (21) day after the resolution of Officer Nguyen's post-trial motions. No prior time modifications in this Action have affected the dates for moving or applying for attorneys' fees and cost. Moreover, the effect of the Stipulation will either have no impact on the case schedule (if briefing on attorneys' fees and costs becomes unnecessary), or, at worst, result in a minimal delay of the resolution of this matter (if all briefing on fees and costs occurs after the resolution of Officer Nguyen's post-trial motions). The Declaration required by Civil Local Rule 6-3(a) is attached hereto as Exhibit A. An order regarding the extension of time to move or apply for attorneys' fees and costs is set forth below. 1 WEST\21975346.1 STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER EXTENDING TIME TO MOVE AND/OR APPLY FOR ATTORNEYS' FEES/COSTS - CASE NO.
