1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 5 BRIAN BUCHANAN, ET AL., CASE NO. 15-cv-01696-YGR 6 Plaintiffs, ORDER RE: CORRECTIVE NOTICE 7 vs. 8 TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES, LTD, 9 Defendant. 10 11 Pursuant to the Court's request at the July 17, 2018 hearing, defendant Tata Consulting 12 Services, Ltd. ("TCS") has filed a supplemental declaration in support of its opposition to Northern District of California United States District Court 13 plaintiffs' motion to invalidate releases.1 (Dkt. No. 424.) Plaintiffs' request to file a response 14 (Dkt. No. 426) is GRANTED. 15 At this juncture, the Court is not inclined to order as expansive a corrective notice as 16 plaintiffs have requested, i.e. the Court will not invalidate the releases. However, a corrective 17 notice is still required. In light of TCS's filing and the uncertainties which remain regarding the 18 underlying process, TCS SHALL make Mr. Sharma available for deposition by plaintiffs, upon 19 prompt request, by no later than August 13, 2018. 20 In the meantime, the parties SHALL meet and confer regarding a proposed form of 21 corrective notice to those who have signed releases which advises them of the impending trial, the 22 option to join the class notwithstanding the release, and the fact that the Court is still in the process 23 of determining what, if anything, should occur with respect to payments already made and 24 received. The form of corrective notice SHALL BE SUBMITTED to the Court no later than 12 noon 25 on Monday, August 6, 2018. 26 \\ 27 1 28 In connection with this filing, TCS has filed an administrative motion to seal attachments to the declaration. (Dkt. No. 425.) TCS's motion is GRANTED. 1 This Order terminates Docket Numbers 425 and 426. 2 IT IS SO ORDERED. 3 Dated: July 31, 2018 YVONNE GONZALEZ ROGERS 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT JUDGE 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 Northern District of California United States District Court 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
