IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge Robert E. Blackburn
Civil Action No. 13-cv-01125-REB-MJW
LELAND SMALL, individually and on behalf of a class of other similarly situated
ORDER RE: MOTIONS FOR CLASS CERTIFICATION
The matter is before the court sua sponte. In this putative class action, the court
recognizes the requirement under Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(c)(1)(A) to determine whether to
certify a class before the case properly can proceed to resolution by summary
judgment, trial, or otherwise. Therefore, I establish the following briefing schedule to
govern resolution of this and related matters.
IT IS ORDERED as follows:
1. That no later than August 15, 2013, the plaintiff SHALL FILE a motion for
class certification under Fed. R. Civ. P. 23 (a) that addresses, inter alia, (i) the
prerequisites at Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(a)(1)-(4), and (ii) the matters at Fed. R. Civ. P. 23(b);
(b) that defines the proposed class; and (c) that requests the appointment of class
2. That a response and any reply SHALL BE FILED in the time and manner
prescribed by D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1C.;
3. That an applicant for class counsel SHALL ADDRESS the matters at Fed. R.
Civ. P. 23(g)(1)(A)(i)-(iv) and any other matter pertinent to the applicant’s ability to fairly
and adequately represent the interests of the proposed class; and
4. That based on the parties’ submissions, the court WILL either rule on the
papers, order further briefing, convene an evidentiary hearing, or take such further
action as the court in its discretion deems proper and necessary.
Dated June 25, 2013, at Denver, Colorado.
