ORDER DENYING 31 ADMINISTRATIVE MOTION TO STAY PROCEEDINGS by Hon. William Alsup. (whalc2, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 8/16/2017)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
ROBERT BENSON, individually and on
behalf of all others similarly situated,
No. C 17-01894 WHA
TO STAY PROCEEDINGS
HARRISON GLOBAL, LLC, dba
Defendant’s administrative motion to stay proceedings (Dkt. No. 31) is DENIED,
principally for the reasons set forth in plaintiff’s opposition thereto (Dkt. No. 34). In the event
that Huddlestun is resolved on a class-wide basis in such a way as to eliminate some part of the
instant putative class action, a new motion to limit the proceedings herein may be entertained.
The Court also takes note of plaintiff’s counsel’s suspicion that movant and the plaintiff’s
counsel in Huddlestun are drawing up a collusive settlement based on inadequate discovery (see
id. at 1, 4). Possibly this is true. If it so develops, plaintiff’s counsel will have the opportunity
to present their arguments on the issue to Judge Sabraw.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 16, 2017.
