Hon. Maria-Elena James

IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED AND AGREED by and between the parties to the above-entitled action, by and through their respective counsel, as follows:

1. The parties agreed to and submitted their stipulation and proposed order selecting mediation as an ADR process pursuant to Northern District Civil Local Rule 16-8 and ADR Local Rule 3-5 on July 6, 2012.

2. On July 9, 2012, the parties were ordered to complete mediation within ninety (90) days from that date, or October 7, 2012, in accordance with ADR Local Rule 6-4 of the Northern District of California.

3. The parties met and conferred, and agreed to undergo private mediation in this matter with Charlotte M. Venner, Esq. of Venner ADR Mediation Services.

4. Prior to submitting a stipulation to the Court requesting private mediation, Linda McSweyn of the Law & Mediation Offices of Linda McSweyn was assigned to this case as the Mediator on August 7, 2012.

5. The parties have advised Ms. McSweyn that they discussed undergoing private mediation prior to her assignment as Mediator, and informed her of their intent to file the stipulation herein.

6. The parties have contacted Ms. Venner, and were informed that her calendar during October 2012 is quite full. In light of Ms. Venner's lack of availability, the parties have agreed to undergo mediation on November 12, 2012 and placed that date on hold with Ms. Venner pending this Court's approval of the parties' stipulation. The parties therefore respectfully request the Court provide them leave to complete private mediation by November 12, 2012.

IT IS SO STIPULATED.
