RECITALS 1. On September 18, 2008, plaintiffs filed a complaint in this action against the National Security Agency ("NSA"), the United States, and several Government officials in their official and individual capacities, challenging alleged surveillance activities on statutory and constitutional grounds. See Dkt. 1 in 08-cv-4373 (Sept. 18, 2008). 2. On April 3, 2009, the Government Defendants sued on their official capacities filed a Motion to Dismiss and for Summary Judgment. See Dkt. 18. The Government Defendants noticed their motion for June 25, 2009--a date which, at the time, appeared to be available on the Court's motion calendar. Subsequently, the Government Defendants have been advised that the Court is unavailable on June 25, 2009. 3. The undersigned counsel for the Government Defendants has conferred with counsel for the plaintiffs regarding a revised hearing date, and the parties request that the Government Defendants' motion be set for hearing on July 15, 2009--a date currently available on the Court's motion calendar. 4. In addition, if it please the Court, the parties request that the matter be set for hearing at 10:30 a.m. instead of 2:30 p.m. when the Court normally hears motions. 5. The parties also have conferred and agreed upon the following briefing schedule in connection with a July 15 hearing date: June 3, 2009 - Plaintiffs' Opposition to the Government Defendants' Motion June 26, 2009 - Government Defendants' Reply 6. This stipulation does not address any scheduling issue in connection with plaintiffs' claims against the defendants sued in their individual capacities.
