ALZA CORPORATION, SANDOZ INC., and 20 DOES 1 through 100, inclusive, 21 STIPULATED MOTION AND (PROPOSED) ORDER TO EXTEND DEADLINE FOR MEDIATION UNDER ADR L.R. 6-5 AND CIVIL L.R.7 Defendants. 22 23 24 25 TO THE CLERK OF THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT, NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA, AND TO ALL PARTIES: 26 27 28 Pursuant to ADR L.R. 6-5 and Civil L.R. 7, Defendants ALZA Corporation and Sandoz Inc. (collectively, "Defendants"), through their counsel, hereby requests that the Court extend the deadline for the paries to complete Mediation. 012165/003859/667974/1/ STIPULATED MOTION AND (PROPOSED) ORDER TO EXTEND DEADLINE FOR MEDIATION Dockets.Justia.com 1 On March 25,2010, this Court issued the "Case Management Scheduling Order." This 2 order referred this case to mediation to be completed within one hundred and twenty (120) days. 3 On March 29,2010, this Cour appointed a mediator, Robert F. Espstein. 4 After the appointment of the mediator, the parties participated in a pre-mediation 5 teleconference with the mediator. Essentially, the parties generally discussed the issues involved 6 in this case and agreed to mediate this matter on July 21,2010. 7 At present, however, Plaintiff has not been deposed and his deposition is necessary for 8 the mediation. Defendants' and Plaintiff's counsel have worked diligently to schedule Plaintiff's 9 deposition, but scheduling conflcts have prevented this deposition from going forward. 10 Currently, Plaintiff's deposition is set for July 20,2010. Furhermore, Defendants expect that 11 information learned during Plaintiff's deposition may ultimately result in their need to conduct 12 additional discovery. As such, mediating this case at this time would be unproductive. 13 In addition, both parties have agreed to have Paul Finn mediate this case. Given the 14 medical, scientific, and manufacturing issues presented in this case, it is necessary to have a 15 mediator who is familiar with these issues. Mr. Finn has successfully mediated other similar 16 cases involving the similar medical, scientific, and manufacturing issues presented here. 17 Plaintiff's counsel does not oppose this extension and concurs with this request. 18 Accordingly, both paries agree to complete the mediation by September 27,2010. Both parties 19 further agree to have Paul Finn mediate this case. Furthermore, the mediation deadline extension 20 wil have no effect on any other dates set forth in the case management order. 21 DATED: 1)/7/,0 22 23 TUCKER ELLIS & WEST LLP MICHAEL C.
