(ECF Nos. 5, 18, 20, 21) 14 COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, Defendant. 15 16 17 On May 9, 2022, the parties submitted a stipulated request for an extension of time, 18 which the Court construes as a stipulated motion to modify the scheduling order. (ECF No. 21.) 19 The parties seek a four-day extension of time to file Plaintiff’s opening brief from May 9, 2022, 20 to May 13, 2022. This is Plaintiff’s third request for an extension of time to file the opening 21 brief. Counsel proffers she requires additional time because she recently returned to California 22 after being out of the state for several months due to her father’s current health issues and is 23 catching up on past due assignments as well as striving to ensure the timely submission of 24 briefing assignments currently on calendar. (Id. at 1–2.) The Court is satisfied that good cause 25 exists to grant the requested extension. However, the parties are reminded that requests to 26 modify the briefing schedule that are made on the eve of a deadline or thereafter will be looked 27 upon with disfavor and may be denied absent a showing of good cause for the delay in seeking 28 an extension. 1 1 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 2 1. The parties’ stipulated motion to modify the schedule (ECF No. 21) is GRANTED; 3 4 2. Plaintiff shall have until May 13, 2022, to file the opening brief; and 5 3. All remaining deadlines as set forth in the scheduling order (ECF No. 5), as amended (see ECF Nos. 18, 20) shall be modified accordingly. 6 7 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 Dated: May 10, 2022 UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
