IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Senior District Judge Richard P. Matsch
Civil Action No. 10-cv-00800-RPM
AVAYA INC., a Delaware corporation, and
THE AVAYA INC. SICKNESS AND ACCIDENT DISABILITY PLAN,
ORDER DEFERRING PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR AWARD OF ATTORNEYS’ FEES BASED
ON ERISA AND FOR ENTRY OF SCHEDULING ORDER
On September 5, 2012, the plaintiff filed a motion for an award of attorneys’ fees
based on the Court’s second order awarding short-term benefits under ERISA and the
defendants responded. Because the ERISA claim is only a portion of the relief
requested by the plaintiff and the other claims in the case could also include an award
for attorney’s fees if the plaintiff prevails, the determination of an award of attorneys’
fees for the ERISA claim only will be deferred until this civil action is fully adjudicated.
The plaintiff also filed an unopposed motion to set a scheduling conference or for
approval of the proposed scheduling order. The proposed scheduling order has now
been entered as agreed by that motion. It is
ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motion for an award of attorneys’ fees under ERISA
is deferred, and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motion for limited discovery relative to
attorneys’ fees is denied, and it is
FURTHER ORDERED that the proposed scheduling order submitted by the
plaintiff on October 26, 2012, has been entered.
