The defendant provided a chart that summarized counsel's lodestar fees by hours and task. The court asks for the same chart filed and word format with the following additional information for each category: the biller, the hourly rate, and the total hours expended on that task. The court also asks for the billing records (Exhibit C) in chronological order broken out by biller. Another approach is to provide a spreadsheet that allows the court to sort the fields by biller.The information must be submitted in one week (unless that is unreasonable, in which case, the defendant must update the court by then with its timetable).

01/19/2018 56 The court previously dismissed the plaintiffs' claims for failure to state a claim and with leave to amend. (ECF No. 53.) The plaintiffs have submitted a notice of intent not to file an amended complaint and have asked the court to enter a judgment of dismissal without prejudice. (ECF No. 55.) Ordinarily, if the plaintiffs want to appeal, a judgment dismissing the case with prejudice is appropriate. Alternatively, if the plaintiffs want to end their case without prejudice, they can file a notice of voluntarily dismissal under Rule 41(a)(1) because the defendants have not answered or filed a summary-judgment motion, but then they cannot appeal. See Concha v. London, 62 F.3d 1493, 1507 (9th Cir. 1995). Under the circumstances, the court directs the parties to confer on a proposed form of judgment or whatever alternative process they might pursue. Signed by Judge Laurel Beeler on January 19, 2017.

12/13/2017 46 Order granting 45 Motion for Leave to File entered by Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler.

The court just recognized that the plaintiff's unopposed motion to file a supplemental memo contemplated a response from the defendant. The defendant said that it "has not seen Plaintiff's proposed memorandum and requests the opportunity to file a short response, if necessary." In case the defendant was waiting for court approval to file any response, the court grants the request to file a response. (The court recognizes that it also is possible that the lack of a response means that the defendant did not think it "necessary.") Any response should be filed as soon as is practicable else the court will not be able to read it before the hearing.
