ORDER RE JOINT LETTER OF
SEPTEMBER 13, 2017
LEAPFROG ENTERPRISES, INC., et al.,
Docket No. 145
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
Case No. 15-cv-00347-EMC
The Court shall not rule on the dispute regarding bifurcation of discovery at this juncture.
The parties shall address this issue in their joint CMC statement due on September 21, 2017 (i.e.,
one week in advance of the September 28 CMC). The parties are advised that the Court generally
disfavors bifurcation, and that Defendants shall bear the burden of showing that bifurcation is
warranted. Defendants are further advised that any claim that merits discovery in advance of class
certification would be unduly disproportionate or burdensome must be supported by specific facts
and/or a declaration.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 14, 2017
EDWARD M. CHEN
United States District Judge
