1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 ROY D. NEWPORT, et al., 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 Plaintiffs/Counter-Defendants, v. 16 17 18 19 ORDER REGARDING UPCOMING PRETRIAL CONFERENCE BURGER KING CORPORATION, 14 15 No. C 10-04511 WHA Defendant/Counter-Claimant, v. ANTELOPE VALLEY RESTAURANTS, INC, et al. Counter-Defendants. / The Court is in receipt of Burger King Corporations’s request to continue the final pretrial 20 conference due to a family emergency of one of BKC’s lead counsel (Dkt. No. 404). The Court 21 will go ahead with the pretrial conference as scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on December 19, 2011. 22 However, the Court is sympathetic to the family emergency, so the principal order of business 23 will be a more general discussion about whether to postpone the trial until after resolution of the 24 companion case, Vallabhapurapu, et al. v. Burger King Corporation. Thus, this will be a higher 25 level strategic case management conference and will not get into the specific motions in limine. 26 In light of the shift in focus of the hearing and given the need for the Court to proceed with the 27 28 1 currently scheduled date, the Court would appreciate if one counsel for each side will be in 2 attendance. 3 4 IT IS SO ORDERED. 5 6 Dated: December 13, 2011. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 7 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
