5/29/2013CourtProposed Amended Scheduling Order AMENDED SCHEDULING ORDER: In addition, as the parties have reached an agreed upon schedule for the briefing of Plaintiff’s motion for a preliminary injunction filed on dated May 7, 2013 and submitted said request to the Court in a letter dated May 14, 2013, the briefing schedule shall be as follows: Defendants’ time to oppose or otherwise respond to plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction is extended to June 11, 2013; and Plaintiffs’ time to submit reply papers in further support of their motion for a preliminary injunction is extended to June 21, 2013. In addition, Defendants’ request that their time or otherwise respond to the Amended Complaint, dated May 3, 2013, is hereby stayed until such a time as the Court has issued a determination on Plaintiffs’ motion for preliminary injunction. This scheduling order supersedes the previous scheduling orders, dated May 9, 2013 and May 23, 2013. Responses due by 6/11/2013. Replies due by 6/21/2013. (Signed by Judge Robert W.

5/23/2013CourtOrder re Plaintiffs Motion for Preliminary Injunction ORDER: On the assumption that no factual dispute exists between the parties, Plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction will be heard on submission on a date to be determined by counsel. In the event that either party believes that a hearing is necessitated due to the existence of a factual dispute exists, that party should notify the Court. In addition, Defendants’ request that their time to answer the amended complaint be stayed until such time that the Court has issued a determination on Plaintiffs’ motion for a preliminary injunction is granted. This scheduling order supersedes the previous scheduling order with respect to the argument, but otherwise leaves in place the briefing schedule previously set forth. (Signed by Judge Robert W. Sweet)
