UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT DISTRICT OF MINNESOTA _____________________________________________________________________________ TOM BRADY, et al., Plaintiffs, v. NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE et al., Defendants. Civ. No. 0:11-CV-00639-SRN-JJG JOINT MOTION TO RESCHEDULE THE HEARING AND EXTEND THE BRIEFING SCHEDULE ON THE ELLER PLAINTIFFS’ MOTION TO AMEND ________________________________________________________________________ Plaintiffs Carl Eller, Obafemi Ayanbadejo, and Ryan Collins (the “Eller Plaintiffs”) and the NFL Defendants hereby jointly move to postpone by thirty days the hearing date and briefing schedule for the Eller Plaintiffs’ motion requesting leave of Court to file and serve a Second Amended Complaint. (Dkt. No. 142) The parties make this joint request to allow the NFL Defendants to focus on the continuing mediation ordered by the Court (Dkt. No. 56). At the Court’s direction, the parties have been meeting from time to time since April 11, 2011, in an effort to resolve their disputes. On July 4, 2011, the Eller Plaintiffs filed their motion requesting leave to file and serve a Second Amended Complaint. On July 5, 2011, the Court set a briefing schedule that requires the NFL Defendants to file their response to the motion on or before July 18, 2011. (Doc. No. 150.) Both the Eller Plaintiffs and the NFL Defendants agree that postponing the current hearing date and corresponding briefing schedule will aid the continuing court-ordered discussions. The parties therefore respectfully request the Court to vacate its current order setting a briefing schedule and set a new hearing date on or after September 8, 2011. Once the Court has established a new hearing date, the Eller Plaintiffs will file an Amended Notice for Hearing. Respectfully submitted, David Boies (pro hac vice) BOIES, SCHILLER & FLEXNER LLP 333 Main Street Armonk, NY 10504 (914) 749-8200 (914) 749-8300 (fax) William A.
