Case No. 2:08-cv-00162-JCM-GWF PLAINTIFFS' JOINT REQUEST TO FILE A SURREPLY TO MOTIONS TO DISMISS FILED BY FORUM SHOPS, LLC, FORUM DEVELOPERS LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, SIMON PROPERTY GROUP LIMITED PARTNERSHIP, SIMON PROPERTY GROUP, 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 INC., CAESARS PALACE CORP. AND CAESARS PALACE REALTY CORP. Plaintiffs Phase II Chin, LLC ("Chinois") and Love & Money, LLC (formerly O.P.M.L.V., LLC) respectfully move this Court for an order permitting them to file a Sur-Reply in Further Support of their opposition to Defendants' Motions to Dismiss, filed concurrently with this motion. This motion is based on LR 7-2, the Court's inherent authority to control its own docket and proceedings, the pleadings and documents on file and the memorandum of points and authorities that follows. MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES Local Rule 7.2 addresses motions. While this rule does not specifically provide for the filing of sur-replies, the Court unarguably has the inherent authority to grant leave to file such briefs. See, e.g., Reva Int'l, Inc. v. MBraun, Inc., 2007 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 94821, *20 n. 4 (D. Nev. December 28, 2007) ("Reva could have sought leave to file a sur-reply.") Leave to file a sur-reply should be granted where it would not prejudice any party and where the brief would aid in the decisional process. See Audi AG v. D'Amato, 2007 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 16863, *4 (E.D. Mich. January 3, 2007). In their replies, Defendants have mischaracterized much of the law applicable to the decision of their motions to dismiss, in particular the law regarding claims under 42 U.S.C. 1981. These mischaracterizations are more efficiently refuted in a short written submission than they could be at oral argument. Filing of Plaintiffs' sur-reply would therefore aid in the decisional process. The granting of this motion would not prejudice Defendants, as they will have the opportunity to review this brief prior to the hearing on the Motions and may address it at the hearing. CONCLUSION For the reasons stated above, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Court grant its motion /// /// /// /// 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 to file the Sur-Reply in Further Support of Its Opposition to Defendants' Motions to Dismiss, submitted concurrently with this motion. A proposed order has been submitted concurrently herewith. Dated: September 12, 2008 HAROLD P. GEWERTER, ESQ., LTD. /s/ Harold P. Gewerter, Esq. HAROLD P. GEWERTER, ESQ.
