CARR, No. 1:20-cv-00217-EPG 12 Plaintiff, STIPULATION FOR AN EXTENSION OF TIME; ORDER 13 v. 14 15 16 ANDREW SAUL, Commissioner of Social Security, Defendant. 17 18 19 IT IS HEREBY STIPULATED, by and between the parties, through their respective 20 counsel of record, that the time for Defendant to respond to Plaintiff’s Opening Brief be extended 21 thirty (30) days from October 17, 2020, up to and including November 16, 2020. This is the 22 parties’ first stipulation for an extension of the Court’s Scheduling Order. Plaintiff has stipulated 23 to the request and Defendant understands that this thirty-day extension does not require court 24 approval and files this stipulation pursuant to the requirements of the Court’s Scheduling Order. 25 Good cause exists for this request. Defendant respectfully requests this additional time 26 because Counsel responsible for briefing the matter has been unable to devote the time required to 27 complete Defendant’s response to Plaintiff’s Brief because he has been limited in his ability to 28 work over the past two weeks due to a family health emergency. Specifically, the assigned 1 1 attorney had been providing support to a close family member that was hospitalized two weeks 2 ago and released to in-home hospice care where he passed away the end of the last week. Funeral 3 services will be this upcoming Tuesday. 4 5 6 7 8 A thirty-day extension until November 16, 2020 should give sufficient time for the assigned attorney to complete the response to Plaintiff’s Opening Brief. Counsel apologizes to the Court for any inconvenience caused by this delay. The parties further stipulate that the Court’s Scheduling Order shall be modified accordingly.
