FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge Robert E. Blackburn
Civil Action No. 13-cv-02343-REB-CBS
JP BORDEWICK, and
RICHARD WARNER, individually and on behalf of all other similarly situated persons,
AIR LINE PILOTS ASSOCIATION INTERNATIONAL,
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 thirty (30) days after the first answer or other response,
e.g., motion to dismiss, etc., to the complaint is filed by the defendant in this case, 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 counsel;
2. That the deadlines for filing response and reply briefs SHALL BE FILED in
the time and manner required under D.C.COLO.LCivR 7.1C.;
3. That any 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 September 3, 2013, at Denver, Colorado.
