     Case 1:06-mc-00128-RBW           Document 8-1        Filed 04/19/2006      Page 1 of 3



                         IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
                             FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA

      also known as "Scooter Libby"                 )

    CONSENT MOTION TO RESCHEDULE HEARING ON MOTIONS TO QUASH

       On April 3, 2006, this Court entered a scheduling order providing that arguments

concerning motions to quash subpoenas issued to certain news organizations and journalists

would be heard on May 5, 2006 at 1:30 p.m.

       Because the lead counsel for Time Inc., who will be presenting argument, has an out-of-

town scheduling conflict on that date, Time Inc. respectfully moves this Court to reschedule the

hearing to May 16, 2006 at 1:30 p.m. None of the other deadlines in the scheduling order would

be affected by this motion. A proposed order is attached hereto.

       The Special Counsel and counsel for Mr. Libby have been consulted and have consented

to this motion, and counsel for the other media organizations and reporters that have received

subpoenas have also been consulted and have consented. Accordingly, this motion would affect

the following matters:

       CR. No. 05-394-RBW (US v. Libby)

       06-mc-00128-RBW (subpoena to Time Inc.)

       06-mc-00169-RBW (subpoena to New York Times)

       06-MS-123-RBW & 06-MS-126-RBW (subpoenas to NBC News and Andrea Mitchell)
