PACIFIC GAS AND ELECTRIC COMPANY, Defendant. / ORDER RE DEFENDANT'S MOTIONS FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT No. C 07-02126 JSW United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 On December 12, 2008, without leave of Court, defendant Pacific Gas and Electric Company ("Defendant") filed two separate motions for summary judgment against plaintiffs William A. Smith and Jose E. Lemus (collectively, "Plaintiffs") and noticed them to be heard on January 16, 2009. These multiple motions were filed in violation of the Court's Standing Order which provides that each party may file only one motion for summary judgment per case, in the absence of a showing of good cause. (Standing Order 8.) The Court finds that Defendant failed to make an adequate showing of good cause. Therefore, the Court HEREBY STRIKES the two motions for summary judgment. Defendant may combine these motions into one, not to exceed thirty-five pages, and file the combined motion by no later than December 24, 2008. Plaintiffs will be entitled to file an opposition brief of equivalent length. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: December 15, 2008 JEFFREY S. WHITE UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
