Verizon Communications, Inc., et al., No. 09-cv-0131-VRW [Civil L.R. 6-1(b); 7-12] Courtroom: 6, 17th Floor Judge: Hon. Vaughn R. Walker Stipulation And [Proposed] Order Extending Response Date For The Telecommunication Carriers MDL No. 06-1791-VRW Dockets.Justia.com Case 3:09-cv-00131-VRW Document 9 Filed 02/27/2009 Page 2 of 6 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 A. RECITALS On July 10, 2008, Plaintiffs Rev. Joe McMurray, et al. ("McMurray Plaintiffs"), filed a complaint against Defendants Cellco Partnership; Verizon Communications Inc. ("Verizon"); BellSouth Corporation, AT&T Corporation, and AT&T Inc. (collectively, "the AT&T Defendants"); George W. Bush, "individually in his executive capacity and as representative of the United States of America," and the National Security Agency (collectively, the "Government Defendants") in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. See McMurray v. Verizon Communications, Inc., et al., No. 08-cv-006264 (S.D.N.Y.). B. On December 19, 2008, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation transferred McMurray to this MDL. C. On January 21, 2009, this Court approved (a) the parties' joint stipulation providing that no defendant need answer or otherwise respond to the complaint in McMurray until March 19, 2009, and (b) Plaintiffs' dismissal without prejudice of Defendant Cellco Partnership from the action. See Dkt. No. 550 in 06-cv-01791. D. On February 6, 2009, the United States filed an administrative motion to treat McMurray as subject to the United States' pending motion to dismiss all cases against the telecommunication carrier defendants pursuant to 802 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act of 1978 Amendments Act of 2008, Pub. L. No. 110-261, 122 Stat. 2436 ("FISAAA" or "Act"). See Dkt. No. 557 in 06-cv-01791. The Plaintiffs opposed this motion. See Dkt. 561. E. On February 19, 2009, this Court denied the United States' administrative motion and provided that the "United States shall have until April 3, 2009 to plead or otherwise respond to the complaint in this individual action." Dkt. No. 565 in 06-cv-01791. F. The parties believe that it will promote efficiency if Verizon and the AT&T Defendants (collectively the "Telecommunication Carrier Defendants") are granted the same extension of time within which to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint in McMurray. G. Neither Plaintiffs nor Defendants intend this stipulation to waive any procedural or substantive defenses, rights or objections, including, but not limited to, the right to challenge personal jurisdiction over any particular Defendant.
