v.
INTERNATIONAL PAPER COMPANY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

ORDER

Now before the Court is Plaintiffs' Motion for Extension of Time to Oppose Defendants' Motion to Dismiss for Improper Venue or to Transfer Venue (Doc. 38) and Defendants' Motion for Limited Stay of Proceedings Pending Ruling on Venue (Doc. 41).

Plaintiffs' Motion for Extension of Time (Doc. 38) is unopposed. Therefore, the Court GRANTS Plaintiffs' Motion for Extension of Time. (Doc. 38.) Plaintiffs are granted an additional 60 days from the date of this Order to respond to Defendants' Motion to Dismiss for Improper Venue or to Transfer Venue. (Doc. 34.) During that time period, Plaintiffs may conduct discovery solely on issues related to venue. Defendants shall comply with all discovery requests that are related to venue.

In addition, the Court GRANTS Defendants' Motion for Limited Stay of Proceedings Pending Ruling on Venue. (Doc. 41). The Court finds that the valuable interest of preserving judicial resources is best served if it allows the court that will ultimately be handling this matter to familiarize itself and resolve all issues, including discovery, in this case. Therefore, the matter is STAYED pending the Court's decision on Defendants' Motion to Dismiss for Improper Venue or to Transfer Venue. (Doc. 34.)

IT IS SO ORDERED.
