United States District Court, S.D. New York
August 16, 2005.
In re WorldCom, Inc. Securities Litigation, Hannon, et al.
Ebbers, et al., Luke, et al. v. Ebbers, et al., Floyd, et al. v. Ebbers, et al., Sharbrough, et al., v. Ebbers, et al., Abraham, et al., v. Ebbers, et al., Wyly, et al., v. Ebbers, et al.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: DENISE COTE, District Judge
Dear Judge Cote:
We represent Arthur Andersen LLP ("Andersen"), Mark Schoppet,
and Melvin Dick in the above-referenced actions. Pursuant to the
Court's scheduling order, our motion to dismiss the complaints
will be filed this Friday, August 19, 2005.
We write to respectfully request permission to file one
combined memorandum of law (not to exceed 30 pages) for all six
actions. Because the six complaints are largely identical, we feel that
filing one combined memorandum will allow the Court and the
parties to address the motions to dismiss in the most efficient
manner. We seek the 5-page extension of the Court's normal
25-page limit in light of the fact that the memorandum is being
submitted on behalf of three separate parties (Andersen,
Schoppet, and Dick), and the fact that there are seven
substantive claims being asserted against those parties.
