Brad D. Greenspan
News Corporation, et al.
Dear Mr. Greenspan:
As you are aware, based on your recusal motion, this matter was reassigned to me in all respects. On April 21, 2015, 1 scheduled a teleconference to discuss scheduling on all outstanding matters. The Defendants were present on the teleconference; however, you failed to appear. As a result, I was unable to conduct the teleconference. The Scheduling Order in this matter required you to file any opposition to the pending Motions to Dismiss on or before April 21, 2015. The docket does not reflect any response by you. If you intend to defend these Motions to Dismiss, you must: (1) File a response to the Motions by Monday, May 4, 2015 by 5:00 p.m. (EST); (2) File at the same time a request to have your response considered notwithstanding the Scheduling Order, stating why a response was not filed in compliance with the Scheduling Order and demonstrating cause, if any exists, why your late filing should be excused; and (3) File at the same time a letter stating why you chose not to attend the April 29, 2015 teleconference and demonstrating cause, if any exists, why the costs of the Defendants who did attend should not be assessed to you.
If no response to the Motions to Dismiss is filed by the date and time specified above, I will consider the Motions unopposed.
