Attorneys for NIELSEN AUDIO, INC. and BUBBA THE LOVE SPONGE have asked U.S. District Court for the Middle District of FLORIDA, TAMPA division for more time to prepare for trial in NIELSEN's case against the TAMPA-based syndicated morning host.
A joint motion filed by the parties details the completed stages of the case and asks for more time after the denial of an Agreed Protective Order led to the parties not exchanging documents which both sides agreed contained confidential information that needed to be protected and a settlement unlikely. The proposed new deadlines would push all of the deadlines forward four months, with a pretrial conference delayed from DECEMBER 9th to next APRIL 5th and the trial date pushed from JANUARY 3rd to MAY 1st.
