PETROCELLI ISO YAHOO!'S MOT. TO SHORTEN TIME Dockets.Justia.com Case 4:07-cv-02151-CW 1 2 2. Document 10 Filed 06/21/2007 Page 2 of 3 Pursuant to this Court's June 19, 2007, order, defendants' response to plaintiffs' amended complaint ís due July 27, 2007. The Court set this due date pursuant to a stípulatíon agreed upon by the parties. In the declaration accompanying that stípulatíon, I stated that Yahoo! would be advancing a "proposal to have an early case management conference in this case and to request a schedule to address sequentially certain threshold matters, such as the question whether YHKL is subject to jurisdiction ín this case." 3. In a motion filed today-Defendant Yahoo!, Inc's Motion For An Early Case 3 4 5 6 7 8 Management Conference And Order ("CMO Motion"}-Yahoo! seeks such a case management conference and schedule. 4. We have requested that a hearing on our CMO Motion be held July 2, 2007-i. e., on shortened time. 5. Pursuant to Cívíl Local Rule 7-11(a), my associate, Matthew Kline, asked plaintiffs' counsel, Morton Sklar, whether they opposed our requests to shorten time on our CMO Motion. Mr. Sklar responded: "Plaintiffs have indicated that they object to both the Defendants' Motion seeking a special case management conference, and to the Defendants' request for an early (July 2) date for a hearing on that Motion, on the grounds that, first, these requests are at variance with the new timetable ordered by the Court, and more specifically with the justification given by the Defendants for requesting changes ín that timetable, and second, because ít is premature to raise the matters the Defendants seek to address before the Court before the regular ADR and case management process takes place." ^. July 2ís the last day that I am available before leaving on a family vacation abroad. The vacation, planned long ago and including many extended family members, ends on July 22. Monday, July 23, is my first day back to work. I advised Mr. Sklar about my vacation plans when I proposed to him this case management approach, when he and I first spoke earlier this month. After Mr. Sklar said he would not support such an approach, I requested an initial extension of time, which was granted after some negotiation. I made clear to Mr. Sklar, as set forth ín our joint stipulation to the Court, that Yahoo! sá11 intended to promptly present a motion coy-o^ ^ s ^ cw DECL. OF DANIEL M. PETROCELLI ISO YAHOOi'S MOT.
