STIPULATION TO EXTEND BRIEFING SCHEDULE FOR REPLIES
TO CROSS-MOTIONS FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT (FIRST
MIRANDA M. DU, UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
Local Rule 6-1, Plaintiffs Sierra Trail Dogs
Motorcycle and Recreation Club; Pine Nut Mountains Trail
Association; American Motorcyclist Association, District 36;
California Four Wheel Drive Association; and the Blue Ribbon
Coalition; Federal Defendants United States Forest
Service; Humboldt Toiyabe National Forest; and William
(“Bill”) Dunkelberger, Forest Supervisor,
Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest; and
Defendant-Intervenors American Bird Conservancy,
Center for Biological Diversity, Western Watersheds Project,
and WildEarth Guardians hereby stipulate to extend the
remaining briefing deadlines for their motion and
cross-motions for summary judgment. This is the first such
stipulation for extension of time.
Plaintiffs filed their motion for summary judgment on
September 20, 2019. ECF No. 31. The Federal
Defendants filed their cross-motion and their response in
opposition to the Plaintiffs' motion on November 1,
2019. ECF No. 37. The Defendant-Intervenors filed their
cross-motion and their response in opposition to the
Plaintiffs' motion on November 8, 2019. ECF Nos.
the current briefing schedule for the cross-motions, ECF No.
27, the Plaintiffs' response/reply brief is due by
December 6, 2019; the Federal Defendants' reply
brief is due 28 days from the filing of the Plaintiffs'
response/reply brief, which would be January 3,
2020, at the latest; and the Defendant-Intervenors'
reply brief is due 7 days from the filing of the Federal
Defendants' reply brief, which would be January 10,
2020, at the latest.
parties request an extension of these three upcoming briefing
deadlines in the interests of justice. The current briefing
schedule spans the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays,
during which time preparing the reply briefs will be
difficult due to conflicting work and personal commitments.
Additionally, the Defendant-Intervenors' lead counsel are
from the Stanford Environmental Law Clinic, a teaching clinic
at Stanford Law School where student practitioners work under
the supervision of licensed attorneys. The winter academic
quarter for the law school's 2020-2021 school year will
not begin until January 6, 2020, at which time a new set of
students will be working in the clinic. An extension of the
due date for the Defendant-Intervenors' reply brief would
permit these new students to prepare the reply brief.
parties therefore stipulate that, with the Court's
permission, the following deadlines will supersede the
deadlines established in by the previous briefing schedule in
ECF No. 27:
Plaintiffs' Combined Response/Reply Brief is due on or
before December 20, 2019.
Federal Defendants' Reply Brief is due on or before
January 31, 2020.
Proposed Intervenor-Defendants' Reply Brief is due on or
