Case No.:

Hearing Date:

March 26, 2021

Hearing Time:

2:00 p.m.

ORDER RE:

PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT OR, IN THE ALTERNATIVE, SUMMARY ADJUDICATION RE PHASE 2 LEGAL AFFIRMATIVE DEFENSES; and

PHASE TWO COMBINED MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT BY DEFENDANTS GEL SPICE CO., INC., BIG LOT STORES, INC., GROCERY OUTLET, INC., AND TARGET CORPORATION ON ISSUES OF 1) FEDERAL PREEMPTION; 2) COMMERCE CLAUSE; 3) FIRST AMENDMENT, AND 4) EQUAL PROTECTION AND DUE PROCESS

The cross-motions for summary judgment by Plaintiff Consumer Advocacy Group, Inc. (“CAG”) and Defendants Gel Spice Company, Inc., Big Lots Stores, Inc., Grocery Outlet, Inc., and Target Corporation (collectively, “Defendants”) are continued as set forth below.

The parties have interposed more than 150 evidentiary objections. Due to the voluminous number of objections, the hearing on the cross-motions will be continued to a date that will be set at the Hearing on Objections discussed below.

The Court orders the parties to meet and confer by telephone or in person in a serious and good faith effort to resolve and eliminate the objections. The only objections that should remain are those that pertain to material evidence regarding material issues. Keeping the rules of evidence in mind, the parties should be able to reduce the objections to just a few. If any material objections remain unresolved, the parties are to set them forth in a joint statement with the text, the objection, and the argument of each side in favor of their respective positions regarding the remaining material objections.

The joint statement must be filed and a separate ruling sheet must be lodged directly in Department 50 by noon on _______________. The Court will review any remaining objections with the parties at a hearing on _______________ at 2:00 p.m. (the “Hearing on Objections”). The Court continues the hearing on the cross-motions to ________________, 2:00 p.m., in Dept. 50.

If necessary, based upon the resolutions reached during the meet and confer process and/or at the Hearing on Objections, the parties may respectively file and serve revised briefing and evidence. The revised evidence may eliminate objectionable material; however, no new evidence or new argument is to be submitted unless it is as a result of compromises reached during the meet and confer process. In the event that revised briefing and evidence is necessary, the Court will discuss with the parties a briefing schedule for the revised briefing at the Hearing on Objections.

Defendants are ordered to give notice of this Order.
