THIRD STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXTEND BRIEFING
SCHEDULE TO FACILITATE MEDIATION
Suisse, by and through its undersigned counsel, Elizabeth W.
Walker of the law firm Sidley Austin LLP and William M. Noall
of the law firm Garman Turner Gordon LLP, Larry Lattig, as
Creditor Trustee (the "Creditor Trustee")
of the LLV Creditor Trust, by and through his attorneys,
Robert M. Charles, Jr. of the law firm Lewis Roca Rothgerber
Christie LLP and Gary Cruciani, Jr. of the law firm McKool
Smith, P.C., and Highland Floating Rate Opportunities Fund
and NexPoint Credit Strategies Fund (together, the
"Highland Entities" and, collectively with
the Creditor Trustee, the "Appellees") by
and through their attorneys, Jacob S. Frumkin and Michael D.
Warner of the law firm Cole Schotz P.C. and Samuel A.
Schwartz of the law firm Schwartz Flansburg PLLC
(collectively, the "Parties"), stipulate
and agree as follows:
a. On December 12, 2017, this Court issued a Minute Order
[ECF No. 27] (the "Minute Order") setting
the deadlines for Appellant to file and serve an opening
brief, for Appellee(s) to file and serve an answering brief,
and for Appellant to file and serve a reply brief. The
deadlines set in the Minute Order are December 26, 2017,
January 9, 2018, and January 23, 2018, respectively.
b. On December 29, 2017, this Court issued an Order [ECF No.
31] extending the deadlines contained in the Minute Order to
March 2, 2018, April 6, 2018, and April 20, 2018,
respectively, to facilitate the Parties' planned
mediation with the Honorable Gregg W. Zive.
c. On January 23, 2018 the Parties mediated the disputes
involved in what is referred to by the Parties and the United
States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Nevada as the
"Indemnification Dispute, " which include this
appeal. The mediation included approximately 46
additional parties with financial interests in the
Indemnification Dispute, but who have yet to make an
appearance in the appeal and thus are not Parties to this
Stipulation and Order.
d. On March 2, 2018, the Parties submitted their Second
Stipulation and Order to Extend Briefing Schedule to
Facilitate Mediation [ECF No. 32] (“Extension
Stipulation”) as the Parties needed additional
time (the, “Extension Period”) to
document and implement the agreements made at mediation.
e. On March 30, 2018, this Court issued an order [ECF No. 33]
granting the Extension Stipulation thereby extending the
deadlines to April 6, 2018, May 4, 2018 and May 18, 2018.
f. Since the Parties entered into the Extension Stipulation,
they have continued negotiating the documentation to
implement the agreements made at mediation, including
documentation that will allow the termination of this appeal.
However, primarily due to the fact that several of the
attorneys representing Parties were engaged in unrelated
trials during the Extension Period that ran much longer than
they originally expected, and the additional fact that it
took more time than anticipated to obtain the additional 46
interested parties' updated contact information, the
Parties have not yet obtained the necessary order from Judge
Nakagawa that will in turn facilitate the dismissal of this
appeal by the April 6, 2018 briefing deadline. Though the
Parties believe they should have the papers to dismiss this
appeal filed within about thirty (30) days, out of an
abundance of caution, they hereby seek a sixty (60) day
extension of the briefing deadlines to avoid the need for
further extensions of time from this Court.
g. The Parties do not wish to expend further resources on
this appeal pending its dismissal.
h. In view of the foregoing and consistent with Bankruptcy
Rule 8009, made applicable to this appeal pursuant to LR
8018, the Parties have further met and conferred regarding an
