Defendants submitted an administrative motion on June 22, 2011 for leave to file a 30page brief regarding the pending motions to dismiss on or before July 1, 2011. (Dkt. 132.) As noted in defendants motion, plaintiff does not oppose that motion, so long as plaintiff is provided until at least July 15 to respond. (Id.) Bipartisan Legal Advisory Group (BLAG) submitted an opposition to defendants motion yesterday. (Dkt. 139.) Buried in a footnote on the last page of BLAGs opposition is a request that, if defendants motion is granted, the Court alter the briefing schedule and length of BLAGs reply to plaintiffs opposition to its motion to dismiss. (Dkt. 139 at 5 n.2.) Plaintiff respectfully submits this response to oppose that request. BLAGs reply to plaintiffs opposition to its motion to dismiss is otherwise due on July 8, 2011, pursuant to the agreement of the parties and this Courts June 15, 2011 order (Dkt. 128). Under Local Rule 7-4(b), BLAGs reply is limited to fifteen pages. If defendants motion to file a brief is granted, BLAG now requests leave to file a consolidated 30-page brief in response to both plaintiffs opposition and defendants requested brief and to extend its reply deadline to July 15, 2011. Plaintiff respectfully opposes that request. BLAG has not met and conferred with plaintiff regarding its request. As BLAG repeatedly notes in its submission, defendants and plaintiff are not the same party and have different positions and interests. It is inappropriate and confusing for BLAG to respond to both briefs in a consolidated brief. BLAG should file a response of no more than 15 pages to plaintiffs opposition to its motion to dismiss on July 8. That response should be separate from any response by BLAG to defendants brief. Plaintiff has no objection to BLAG responding to defendants brief on July 15, 2011. To the extent that issues overlap between BLAGs response to plaintiff and BLAGs response to defendants, BLAG should feel free to incorporate portions of its earlier filing by reference. However, plaintiff sees no basis or need for consolidation of briefing, which appears to be an ill-disguised attempt to garner more pages than otherwise allotted to BLAG on reply (e.g., using 25 pages to respond to plaintiffs and 5 to respond to defendants, or vice versa).
