DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY, Defendant. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) PJH 08-2744 AMENDED STIPULATED REQUEST FOR AN ORDER ENLARGING THE TIME FOR DEFENDANT TO MOVE FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT Pursuant to Civil L.R. 6-2, the parties, through undersigned counsel, hereby stipulate to an enlargement of time, up to and including Monday, December 15, 2008, for Defendant to move for summary judgment. 1 Counsel for Plaintiff has stipulated to this extension request. As grounds for this stipulation, Defendant states as follows: 1. On September 19, 2008, the parties participated in a joint case management conference in which, inter alia, the Court ordered the parties to continue their attempts to settle this matter, if possible. 1 Defendant's summary judgment motion is currently due on October 29, 2008.

After the joint case management conference, counsel for the parties met and attempted to narrow the scope of this dispute. 3. Pursuant to those discussions, Defendant has broadened the parameters of one of its searches in an attempt to locate information responsive to plaintiffs' FOIA request. Defendant is also reviewing a responsive document to make a determination regarding segregable material. 4. Defendant seeks additional time to complete the aforementioned actions and to process any additional information, if necessary. 5. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement ("ICE") headquarters is in the midst of a 6week move to a new location. The move is causing some disruption in the daily work of ICE, further exacerbating the need for an extension of time. 6. This stipulation is supported by the Declaration of Catrina Pavlik-Keenan, ICE FOIA Officer, filed herewith. The parties have not sought any other extensions of time in this case. 7. As additional time for the Agency to complete its search and review, and if necessary, to process any responsive material may result in the settlement of this matter without the need for further litigation, Plaintiff is not prejudiced by this extension request. In fact, Plaintiff has stipulated to this request. 8. An extension of the due date for Defendant's motion for summary judgment would require the current briefing schedule to be altered. The parties propose the following modified schedule: Defendant's Motion for Summary Judgment due on Monday, December 15, 2008 Plaintiff's Opposition/Cross-Motion due on Tuesday, January 20, 2009 (allowing Plaintiff an additional week because of the holiday season) Defendant's Reply/Opposition due on Tuesday, February 3, 2009 Plaintiff's Reply due on Tuesday, February 10, 2009 Wednesday, March 18, 2009.
