The Court also stated that Plaintiffs could 19 file a response to Pfizer’s brief. In accordance with the above, Pfizer filed a response to the order to show cause (which 20 21 McKesson joined). Plaintiffs then filed their responses to Pfizer’s brief. Plaintiffs’ responses 22 simply incorporate by reference the two orders issued by Judge Carney of the Central District of 23 California and briefs filed by Plaintiffs in conjunction with Judge Carney’s cases (both at the trial 24 and appellate level). The Court hereby strikes Plaintiffs’ filings. Incorporating by reference 25 hundreds of pages is not a true, substantive response to Pfizer’s current brief. Plaintiffs have leave 26 to file a substantive response to Pfizer’s current brief within three days of the date of this order. 27 /// 28 /// 1 Plaintiffs’ response shall be no longer than twenty-five (25) pages.
