ORDER GRANTING FINAL EXTENSION OF TIME PETALUMA SKILLED NURSING, Defendants. / 14 15 On July 12, 2011, the Court issued an Order regarding information it had received 16 regarding the fact that Plaintiff Fred Labankoff required additional time to file an amended 17 complaint by July 15, 2011, and stated that unless any party had any information to the 18 contrary, it would grant Plaintiffs an additional thirty days to file an amended complaint. On 19 July 12, 2011, Mr. Labankoff also filed a request for an extension of time, which shall be 20 docketed forthwith. The Court granted that request and ordered Plaintiffs to file an amended 21 complaint by no later than September 16, 2011. The Court advised Plaintiffs that if they failed 22 to file an amended complaint by that date, or failed to file an additional request for an extension 23 of time showing good cause, the Court would dismiss the case without prejudice. 24 On August 16, 2011, the Court received a letter from Mr. Labankoff’s mother, Svetlana 25 Labankoff, in which she advised the Court that Mr. Labankoff had passed away. In that letter, 26 she appears to ask the Court for legal advice as to how to proceed with the complaint filed by 27 Mr. Labankoff and her sister, Ludmila Shpitj. The Court expresses its condolences to Ms. 28 Labankoff. Unfortunately, it cannot provide her with legal advice. However, it shall construe her letter as a request for additional time to file an amended complaint. Accordingly, the Court 1 shall grant one final extension of time to file an amended complaint. Any amended complaint 2 shall be due by no later than December 2, 2011. If the Court has not received an amended 3 complaint by that date, it shall dismiss these claims without prejudice and without further 4 notice. 5 The Court HEREBY ADVISES Ms. Labankoff that a Handbook for Pro Se Litigants, 6 which contains helpful information about proceeding without an attorney, is available through 7 the Court’s website or in the Clerk’s office. She also may wish to seek assistance from the 8 Legal Help Center.
