EXCERPT:

On January 10, 2013, the Parties filed a long awaited (as well as hoped for) Joint Motion for Consent Order Implementing the Corrective Statements Remedy of Order #1015 and Order #34- Remand. Because ofthe intervening weekend, the Court did not see the Joint Motion until this date, January 13,2014. Consequently, the Status Conference set for January 15,2014, must be continued for the following reasons: (1) the materials contained in the large notebook submitted by the Parties appear to be quite extensive, and (2) more significantly, the issues addressed in the Joint Motion are of enormous significance to the health and welfare of Americans. The Court needs additional time to study and absorb these materials before meeting and discussing the Motion with counsel at the Status Conference.

WHEREFORE, it is this 13th day of January, 2014, hereby

ORDERED, that the Status Conference now set for January 15,2014,at 10:00 a.m. is hereby rescheduled to Wednesday, January 22, 2014, at 10:00 a.m.
