CV 09 1967 (CW) ; CV 09-3329 (CW) EDWARD C. O'BANNON, JR., on behalf of himself and all others similarly situated, Plaintiff, v. NATIONAL COLLEGIATE ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION (a/k/a the "NCAA"); and COLLEGIATE LICENSING COMPANY (a/k/a "CLC"), Defendants. Case No. CV 09-3329 (CW) Judge: The Hon. Claudia Wilken TO THE HONORABLE COURT AND TO ALL PARTIES AND THEIR ATTORNEYS OF RECORD: PLEASE TAKE NOTICE that Plaintiffs Samuel Michael Keller and Edward C. O'Bannon, Jr. ("Plaintiffs"), the plaintiffs in the above-captioned actions, hereby withdraw their Joint Motion to Extend all Deadlines Pending Determination on Motion to Consolidate Actions (Keller Dkt. Entry No. 70; O'Bannon Dkt. Entry No. 56) filed on September 1, 2009 (the "Motion"). The oppositions to the Motion were filed on September 4, 2009, and the motion was ripe for adjudication as of that date. See Civil L.R. 6-3(d). The parties have not received a ruling from the Court on the Motion, and the premises underlying it have changed. In the Motion, the Plaintiffs noted that efficiencies could be gained by stopping briefing and hearings on ancillary issues until the Court rules on Plaintiffs' pending Joint Motion to Consolidate Actions. The relevant briefing on various issues is now largely submitted. Specifically, the reply briefs in support of the motions to dismiss and strike in the Keller action are now submitted, and a hearing is set on October 1, 2009, along with a Case Management Conference. That hearing and Case Management Conference appear to be going 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 forward on the designated day. For ease of preparation and planning for all concerned, Plaintiffs have chosen to withdraw their Motion. Additionally, as of tomorrow, the briefing on Plaintiffs' Joint Motion to Consolidate Actions will be fully submitted, and a hearing is set for October 8th. Plaintiffs also submitted a Joint Motion for Appointment of Interim Co-Lead Counsel Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(g)(3). See Keller Dkt. Entry No. 81; O'Bannon Dkt. Entry No. 76. The hearing on that motion currently is set for October 22, 2009. Defendants previously opposed a similar motion by counsel for Plaintiff Keller; Plaintiff Keller has since withdrawn as being moot in view of the joint co-lead counsel appointment filing with counsel for Plaintiff O'Bannon. Defendants contended that any lead counsel appointment is currently unnecessary due to the pendency of their motions to dismiss, and are expected to do the same in connection with the joint lead counsel application. Defendants NCAA and CLC also have filed a motion to transfer the O'Bannon action, which had a hearing date set for October 22, 2009, but the Court's clerk then issued a Notice indicating that the matter will be decided without a hearing. See O'Bannon Dkt. Entry No. 78. There are thus three hearings on various matters set in October on the 1st, 8th, and 22nd, and the Court may wish to set all matters for hearing on October 1st for the sake of efficiency, along with a joint Case Management Conference. Alternatively, if the Court is inclined to keep the consolidation motion set for October 8th, Plaintiffs respectfully suggest that efficiency could still be gained by moving the hearing on colead counsel appointment motion (currently set for October 22nd), to October 8th.1 1 Plaintiffs' counsel conferred via email with counsel for the Defendants seeking their consent, but they do not consent to moving all hearing dates to October 1, 2009, and also do not consent to moving the co-lead counsel appointment hearing to October 8, 2009.
