The parties understand that the following dates are available which work within the parties' respective calendars: February 23, and March 2, 9, 16 and 23. The parties are willing to participate in a telephone conference with the Court, as necessary, to select new dates and times. The parties are submitting this request in the above entitled case and all other related cases. There is good cause for the stipulation to extend time as follows: Unavailability of Lead Trial Counsel: The primary purpose of this request is the unavailability of lead trial counsel for the plaintiffs. In particular, plaintiffs' lead trial counsel, David M. Poore, has been scheduled for a significant discovery and status hearing in the nationwide class action entitled Stalnaker v. Allstate Insurance Company, et. al. Case No. 04 CV 2628 which is pending before the District Court, El Paso County, State of Colorado, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Given this conflict, it would be impossible for plaintiffs' lead trial counsel to attend both hearings as plaintiffs' counsel is required to travel to Colorado Springs. The parties stipulate and agree that this trial conflict constitutes good cause to continue this matter. No Prior Trial Continuance Requests: The parties have not made any prior requests for a continuance of the Initial Case Management Conference in this matter. Judicial Economy and No Prejudice: The parties are not making this request for any improper purpose, including undue delay. Instead, the parties agree that judicial economy will be served if this request is granted. In particular, it is crucial that plaintiffs' lead trial counsel attend and participate in the Initial Case Management Conference. Moreover, neither party would suffer any prejudice if the trial date was continued; instead, the parties have stipulated to this request. /// /// /// /// 2 STIPULATION AND PROPOSED ORDER TO CONTINUE THE INITIAL CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE KEY v.
