Trader v. Seatgeek Inc., Case No. 20-cv-3248-VEC
Counsel for the Plaintiffs in the above-captioned matter write to seek an adjournment of
the Initial Pretrial Conference set for June 12, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. (as well as the corresponding
filings). The reasons for the requested adjournment are that: 1) The complaint in this case was
amended on May 18, 2020 in response to concerns raised by counsel for Defendant prior to service.
Plaintiffs have not yet effected service on Defendant, though Plaintiffs’ counsel have been in
contact with Defendant’s counsel since May 6 regarding waiver of service and believe that an
agreement thereon will be reached shortly; 2) Plaintiffs’ counsel did not distribute the Notice of
Initial Pretrial Conference to counsel for Defendant in time for a timely IPTC joint submission and
conference preparation, for which they take full responsibility1 and for which Defendant and its
counsel bear none; 3) Plaintiffs are among six movants who are seeking transfer of this case
Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1407 and Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation (“JPML”) Rule 6,
Plaintiffs’ Counsel sincerely apologizes to the Court for this oversight and wishes to assure the
Court that it will not be repeated.
Case 1:20-cv-03248-VEC Document 14 Filed 06/09/20 Page 2 of 2
which motion is presently pending before the JPML (MDL No. 2951). It is possible that the IPTC
will therefore be rendered unnecessary.
There have been no previous requests for adjournment or extension of time of any kind in
this matter. Plaintiffs propose and, subject to and without waiving its contention that Plaintiffs are
required to arbitrate this dispute, Defendant does not oppose the following potential dates for the
IPTC: September 4, 11, or 18,2020. These dates would allow time for the JPML to determine
whether the case will be transferred prior to the IPTC.
Application GRANTED. The initial
pretrial conference is adjourned to
September 18, 2020 at 10:00 a.m. The
parties' joint submissions are due by
September 10, 2020.
