ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFFS' MOTION TO DISMISS DEFENDANTS' COUNTERCLAIM re 185. Signed by JUDGE LESLIE E. KOBAYASHI on 05/30/2014. -- Because Defendants' Counterclaim was filed on February 25, 2014, [dkt. no. 175] which was after this deadline, the Court will permit Plaintiffs to file a substantive motion regarding the Counterclaim by July 28, 2014 and has reserved the hearing date of September 15, 2014 at 9:45 a.m. for this motion. At the risk of stating the obvious, no other substantive motions shall be filed without prior leave of court. Further, given the timing of the Counterclaim's filing due to the appeal taken and the filing and withdrawal of the Motion to Dismiss, the Court informs the parties that it may consider severing or bifurcating the trial on the Counterclaim from the trial on Plaintiffs' claims, which is scheduled to commence on December 2, 2014.
