BLINKEN, CASE NO. 1:23-CV-00408-ADA-SKO STIPULATION AND ORDER FOR FIRST EXTENSION OF TIME AND CONTINUING SCHEDULING CONFERENCE (Doc. 6) Defendant. 14 15 16 The Defendant respectfully requests a first extension of time in which to respond to the 17 Complaint, and counsel for Plaintiffs does not oppose. This case concerns the visa application of 18 Plaintiff Sona Noroozi ASL, which was refused for administrative processing following a November 19 2022, consular interview. The administrative processing has now been resolved. The parties anticipate 20 that the consular official will be able to complete the adjudication of the visa application in this case 21 shortly, following the receipt of requested documents from the beneficiary, which is expected to render 22 this lawsuit moot. 23 The parties therefore stipulate that the new date for Defendants to file an answer or other 24 dispositive pleading is June 22, 2023. The parties further request that all other filing deadlines be 25 similarly extended, and that the initial scheduling conference, currently scheduled for July 20, 2023, be 26 vacated and reset. 27 28 1 30 1 Respectfully submitted, 2 3 Dated: May 19, 2023 PHILLIP A.
