Ghanem v. Johnson et al.
Civil No. PJM 15-710
On Friday, May 15,2015, the Court received the Government's Motion for an Extension of Time
to Respond to Ghanem's Complaint, which is due Monday, May 18. ECF NO.6. The
Government seeks a 60 day extension of time sufficient for it to complete the administrative
appeal of the denial of Ghanem's naturalization application. The Government represents that
doing so will moot the action presently before the Court. Ghanem opposes the Motion on the
basis that the USCIS has failed to promptly adjudicate Ghanem's appeal of the USC1S's denial
of his application for naturalization, and that further delay will harm his business. ECF NO.8.
The Court GRANTS the Government's Motion for Extension of Time for the Govcrnment to
respond to Ghanem's Complaint. The Government shall file their initial response to the
Complaint on or before July 17, 20 IS. The Court will grant no further extensions of timc to the
Governmcnt to file their initial response to the Complaint.
If Ghanem desires to amend the Complaint alier the uscrs ruling is issued, he should make
such a motion at the appropriate time, at which point the Court will take it under consideration.
Despite the informal nature of this ruling, it shall constitute an Order of the Court and the Clerk
" d"k" h ",mdlogly.
