ORDER ON DEFENDANTS’ REQUEST
FOR CLARIFICATION RE: PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION TO ENFORCE THE
SETTLEMENT AGREEMEENT; REQUEST
FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO PAY
J. RAZO, et al.,
On July 15, 2019, Defendants filed a request for clarification regarding Plaintiff’s
motion to enforce the settlement agreement, and a request for an extension of time to pay the
settlement funds. (ECF No. 159). Defendants state that they “are not certain: (1) whether
Plaintiff and the Court are satisfied with the efforts to correct Plaintiff’s restitution balance; and
(2) the proper destination for Plaintiff’s settlement funds (i.e., Plaintiff’s inmate trust account
versus his attorney’s client trust account).” (Id. at 2).
Additionally, Defendants state that “it would be nearly impossible to deliver the
settlement funds by the original July 23, 2019 deadline, and extremely difficult to deliver the
settlement funds by the deadline proposed in Defendants’ first request for an extension of time
(September 21, 2019). Therefore, Defendants respectfully request an additional sixty-day
extension of time to pay the settlement funds, up to and including November 20, 2019.” (Id.).
Plaintiff’s motion to enforce the settlement agreement is still pending, and the Court
will rule on it in due course. In the order on Plaintiff’s motion the Court will address the proper
destination for the settlement funds, if necessary.
As the Court has not yet ruled on Plaintiff’s motion, the Court finds good cause to grant
Defendants’ request for an extension of time. If payment is required, Defendants have four
months from the date of service of the order on Plaintiff’s motion to deliver the settlement
IT IS SO ORDERED.
