No. 135). The parties recently discovered that 161 members of the certified class were inadvertently omitted from the list for purposes of notice under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(c)(2)(B). (Id. at 1.) Because these members should receive the same notice and opportunity to request exclusion as other members, and the Court had previously approved a form of notice and a 75-day opt-out period (Dkt. No. 130), the parties request that the case schedule be modified as follows: // // MINUTE ORDER C15-0144-JCC PAGE - 1 DEADLINE 1 EVENT Deadline for expert reports October 30, 2017 Deadline for rebuttal reports November 30, 2017 Deadline for Dispositive Motions February 9, 2018 Dispositive Motion Responses March 9, 2018 Dispositive Motion Replies March 16, 2018 Deadline for Expert Discovery March 9, 2018 7 Deadline for Fact Discovery March 9, 2018 8 Deadline to Complete Mediation March 30, 2018 9 Plaintiffs’ Pretrial Statement Due April 20, 2018 Defendant’s Pretrial Statement Due April 27, 2018 Deadline to Disclosure Designations May 4, 2018 Deadline to Meet/Confer regarding Pretrial Order May 11, 2018 Proposed Pretrial Order Due May 18, 2018 Deadline to Serve Objections May 18, 2018 Trial June 18, 2018 (contingent on Court’s schedule) 2 3 4 5 6 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 Finding good cause, the Court GRANTS the parties’ motion (Dkt. No. 135). The Court DIRECTS that notice be sent to the 161 class members inadvertently omitted from the class list provided to the notice administrator based on the same terms as other members. But in order to accommodate the Court’s trial schedule, the Court SETS the following case schedule: DEADLINE EVENT 21 Deadline for expert reports October 30, 2017 Deadline for rebuttal reports November 30, 2017 Deadline for Dispositive Motions March 2, 2018 24 Dispositive Motion Responses March 30, 2018 25 Dispositive Motion Replies April 6, 2018 26 Deadline for Expert Discovery March 30, 2018 22 23 MINUTE ORDER C15-0144-JCC PAGE - 2 Deadline for Fact Discovery March 30, 2018 Deadline to Complete Mediation April 20, 2018 Plaintiffs’ Pretrial Statement Due May 14, 2018 Defendant’s Pretrial Statement Due May 21, 2018 4 Deadline to Disclosure Designations May 29, 2018 5 Deadline to Meet/Confer regarding Pretrial Order June 4, 2018 6 Proposed Pretrial Order Due June 11, 2018 7 Deadline to Serve Objections June 11, 2018 8 Trial July 9, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. (contingent on the Court’s schedule) 1 2 3 9 DATED this 6th day of November 2017. 10 William M.
