BEFORE THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund, et al. : : : Plaintiffs : : v. : : U.S. Department of Agriculture, et al. : : Defendants : Case No. 1:08-cv-01546-RMC Judge Rosemary M. Collyer PLAINTIFFS' NOTICE OF INTENT TO FILE SUPPLEMENT TO ADMINISTRATIVE RECORD Plaintiffs intend to file a supplement to the administrative record that was filed in this matter by Defendant United States Department of Agriculture on December 12, 2008. LCvR 7(n)(1) provides, in part, that "In cases involving the judicial review of administrative agency actions, counsel shall provide the Court with an appendix containing copies of those portions of the administrative record that are cited or otherwise relied upon in any memorandum in support of or in opposition to any dispositive motion." In addition, LCvR 7(n)(2) provides, in part, that the appendix "shall be prepared jointly by the parties and filed within 10 days following the final memorandum on the subject motion." Finally, LCvR 7(n)(3) provides, in part, that "the parties may request the option to submit separate appendices to be filed with any memorandum in support of, or in opposition to, the dispositive motion." In this case, USDA has unilaterally filed an administrative record without first consulting with Plaintiffs. Also, USDA has filed the record before the close of all the papers to be filed in this matter that relate to Defendants' respective motions to dismiss. Consequently, Plaintiffs wish to inform the Court that they will be consulting with Defendants in an effort to agree on the contents of the appendix that will constitute the administrative record in this case. In the event the parties cannot agree on an appendix, Plaintiffs will be submitting their own appendix. Respectfully submitted, Dated: December 18, 2008 /s/ David G. Cox David G. Cox (D.C.
