ROBERT A. HOREL, et al., Judge: The Honorable William Alsup Defendants. Trial Date: June 6, 2011 Action Filed: October 14, 2009 Counsel from Orrick, Herrington, and Sutcliffe are counsel for Plaintiff Carlos Castro in both the above-captioned matter ("Horel") and the related matter, Castro v. Terhune, et al., Case No. 3:98-CV-04877 WHA ("Terhune"). Kenneth Roost and Brendan Kenny are counsel for Defendants in both matters. On May 21, 2010, the Court set trial, pretrial, and discovery deadlines in the Horel matter. (Docket No. 26.) The discovery cut-off is currently set for February 28, 2011. The parties, however, have not conducted discovery in Horel because they believe that Terhune will ultimately moot the action. Specifically, the outcome of the pending Court-ordered validation 1 [Proposed] Joint Stipulation Staying Case (C09-4902 WHA) 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 procedure in Terhune will likely supersede the 2006 inactive-status review that Castro challenges in Horel. See October 29, 2010 Remedial Order to Conduct New Validation Procedure in Castro v. Terhune [Docket No. 376]. The pending validation procedure will determine whether Castro is a prison "gang associate now." Id. at 2 (emphasis in original). Because the Horel action will likely be mooted by the outcome of Terhune, the parties jointly request that the Court: 1. Stay the Horel action pending completion of the Court-ordered validation procedure in Terhune and all resulting litigation; and 2. Vacate all pending deadlines in Horel.

KENNY Attorneys for Defendants Fischer, et al. Good cause appearing, the case is stayed, pending the outcome of the Terhune matter. Nevertheless, a case management conference is set in this matter for May 26, 2011, at 3:00 p.m. APPROVED AND SO ORDERED: February 28, 2011. HON. WILLIAM ALSUP United States District Court Judge DATED: 2 [Proposed] Joint Stipulation Staying Case (C09-4902 WHA)
