Mendis v. Schneider National Carriers, Inc.

United States District Court, W.D. Washington, Seattle

November 6, 2017

BALAPUWADUGE MENDIS, et al., Plaintiffs,
v.
SCHNEIDER NATIONAL CARRIERS, INC., Defendant.

          MINUTE ORDER

          THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR JUDGE.

         The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable John C. Coughenour, United States District Judge:

         This matter comes before the Court on the parties' stipulated motion to modify the case schedule (Dkt. No. 135). The parties recently discovered that 161 members of the certified class were inadvertently omitted from the list for purposes of notice under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23(c)(2)(B). (Id. at 1.) Because these members should receive the same notice and opportunity to request exclusion as other members, and the Court had previously approved a form of notice and a 75-day opt-out period (Dkt. No. 130), the parties request that the case schedule be modified as follows:
