this Honorable Court the following:
On April 27, 2005, the Court granted Defendant Warner-Lambert,

Plaintiffs to produce expert reports in three groups based

each case. The expert reports in which the surname of the First
Named Plaintiff begins with the letters A through I shall be
served by August 1, 2005.

Plaintiffs' files have been placed in storage and are not readily
accessible to Plaintiffs' counsel.
Additionally, Plaintiffs' counsel has been unable to meet with
their expert, Dr. Calvin Ramsey, regarding the directives of

Jonnie Newell, Shelia Wilson, Neta Stringer, Wavine Campbell,
Thomas Duncan, James Eiland, Henry Herring, Edward Hurlbert,

will need additional time to adequately comply with Pretrial
Order No. 370.

Plaintiffs ninety (90) days from August 1, 2005, to submit expert
reports for all First Named Plaintiffs in which the First Letter
of the surname begins with letters A through I.
WHEREFORE, PREMISES CONSIDERED, Plaintiffs move this Honorable
