That absent further order of the court, the joint claim construction statement SHALL BE LIMITED to fifteen (15) pages; 3. That the plaintiffs' brief on claim construction SHALL BE FILED 30 days after the joint claim construction statement is filed; 4. That the deadlines for filing response and reply briefs SHALL BE AS PRESCRIBED under D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1C.; 5. That absent further order of the court, the brief of the plaintiffs on claim construction and the response brief of any defendant SHALL BE LIMITED to twenty (20) pages. 6. That within ten (10) days after the reply brief is due or filed, the parties SHALL CONVENE a telephonic motions' hearing setting conference with the court's administrative assistant (303-335-2350) to set a time for a possible Markman hearing; provided, furthermore, that plaintiffs are responsible for initiating the call, which must include representatives of all the parties with authority to schedule matters in this case; 7. That based on the parties' submissions, the court will either rule on the papers, order further briefing, convene a Markman hearing, appoint a special master, or take such further action as the court in its discretion deems proper and necessary.
