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 OF DEFENDANTS AND THE ELLER PLAINTIFFS TO RESCHEDULE THE HEARING ON DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO DISMISS ________________________________________________________________________ The Eller Plaintiffs and NFL Defendants hereby jointly move to postpone by one month the hearing on Defendants’ motion to dismiss the Eller Plaintiffs First Amended Class Action Complaint (Dkt. No. 137). The hearing is currently set for August 29, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. (Dkt. No. 139). The parties make this joint request to allow the NFL Defendants to focus on the continuing mediation ordered by the Court (Dkt. No. 56). With the Court’s guidance, the NFL Defendants previously scheduled a hearing date of August 29, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. for the NFL Defendants’ motion to dismiss the Eller Plaintiffs’ complaint. (Dkt No. 139). At the Court’s direction the parties have also been meeting from time to time since April 11, 2011, in an effort to resolve their disputes. The Eller Plaintiffs have also moved for leave to file a Second Amended Complaint. Both the Eller Plaintiffs and the NFL Defendants agree that postponing by at least thirty days the hearing date for the NFL Defendants’ motion to dismiss will aid the continuing court-ordered discussions and preserve the resources of the Court and the parties. The parties therefore respectfully request the Court to allow the NFL Defendants to reschedule the hearing date and briefing schedule applicable to this motion by at least thirty days. Once the parties have settled a new hearing date, on or after September 8, 2011, Defendants 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.
