CASE MANAGEMENT CONFERENCE 9 JIFFY LUBE INTERNATIONAL, INC., 10 Defendant. 11 12 The Court has reviewed the letter briefs separately filed by the parties on June 11, 2015. Northern District of California United States District Court 13 Plaintiffs' counsel states that he is unable to attend the hearing on Defendant's motion to compel 14 arbitration scheduled for today, June 11, 2015, due to a medical emergency. The Court takes this 15 very serious representation at face value, and thus vacates the hearing. The Court further orders 16 the parties to meet and confer to agree on a new hearing date. The parties shall file a stipulation 17 regarding the new agreed-upon hearing date by June 17, 2015. At the hearing, Plaintiffs' counsel 18 should be prepared to personally explain to the Court the circumstances requiring the continuance. 19 The Court also vacates the case management conference currently set for July 14, 2015. If 20 necessary, the Court will reset the case management conference after the pending motion to 21 compel arbitration is resolved. 22 Going forward, the Court expects the parties to resolve issues like this one by meeting and 23 conferring, without involving the Court. 24 IT IS SO ORDERED. 25 Dated: June 11, 2015 26 ______________________________________ HAYWOOD S.
