Plaintiff-Appellant Laura Siegel Larson, individually and as personal

v. Time Warner Inc., et al., C.D. Cal. Case No. 04-CV-08776 ODW. I am a
member in good standing of the State Bar of California and submit this declaration
in support of Appellant Laura Siegel Larson’s Unopposed Motion For An
Extension Of Time To File Opening Brief pursuant to Ninth Cir. Rule 31-2.2(b). I
have personal knowledge of the facts set forth in this declaration and, if called as a
witness, I could and would testify competently to such facts under oath.
Plaintiff-Appellant Laura Siegel Larson (“Appellant”) has not
previously requested any extension of time to file her opening brief in this matter.
The issues in this appeal are complex and require time to prepare an
opening brief that will most effectively assist the Court in resolving the issues
I am the principal of Toberoff & Associates, P.C., a small boutique
law firm, comprised of three attorneys, that focuses on copyright litigation. I have
numerous competing commitments that justify the brief extension of time
requested in this unopposed motion.
I represent the plaintiff The First National Bank in Sioux Falls, as
trustee for The Sequoia Charitable Trust, in the case The First National Bank in
Sioux Falls v. Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc., et al., C.D. Cal. Case No. 09-CV08887 (GAF), and have a settlement mediation, summary judgment briefing,
motions, and numerous depositions scheduled over the next month.
I also represent the children and heirs of comic book creator Jack
Kirby as appellants in Marvel Characters, Inc., et al. v. Kirby, et al., C.A. No. 1103333 (CM) (2d Cir.), wherein I must prepare and file an opening brief and an
appendix by December 9, 2011.
I am also counsel of record for Appellant as a defendant and for co-
defendants Mark Warren Peary, as personal representative of the Estate of Joseph
Shuster, and Jean Adele Peavy in the related case of DC Comics v. Pacific Pictures
Corp., et al., C.D. Cal. Case No. 10-CV-03633 (ODW). In this case, and the two
related cases Siegel v. Time Warner Inc., supra, and DC Comics v. Pacific Pictures
Corp., supra, the parties have a JAMS settlement mediation scheduled before the
Hon. Daniel Weinstein on December 1, 2011.
On October 13, 2011, Appellees’ counsel initially brought up the issue
with me of extending the briefing schedule, and informed me on October 20, 2011
and October 26, 2011, that Appellees do not oppose this motion.
I declare under penalty of perjury that the foregoing is true and correct.
Executed this 26th day of October, 2011, at Los Angeles, California.
