(“Wyndham”), by and through its counsel, 18 Armstrong Teasdale LLP, and Plaintiffs Judy Sabella and Timothy Sabella (collectively, 19 “Plaintiffs”), by and through their counsel, Albright, Stoddard, Warnick & Albright, hereby stipulate 20 and agree pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 6 and Local Rule LR IA 6-1 and subject to this Court’s 21 approval, to extend the deadline for Wyndham to respond to Plaintiff’s Complaint (ECF No. 1, at 22 Exhibit A), from June 3, 2021, to June 18, 2021. As set forth below, good cause exists to extend 23 Wyndham’s deadline to respond to the Complaint to June 18, 2021. This is the first request to 24 extend this deadline. 25 On April 19, 2021, Plaintiffs filed their Complaint against Wyndham in the Eighth Judicial 26 District Court, Clark County, Nevada. (ECF No. 1.) Wyndham received a copy of the Summons 27 and Complaint on April 28, 2021. 28 arbitration issues and to gather documents and facts to respond to the Complaint, Wyndham (Id.) Anticipating the need for additional time to assess 1 Case 2:21-cv-01016-GMN-DJA Document 6 Filed 06/02/21 Page 2 of 3 1 requested an extension to June 18, 2021, to respond to the Complaint. Plaintiffs agreed, and the 2 deadline to respond to the Complaint was June 18, 2021. 3 However, on May 27, 2021, Wyndham timely removed this action to this Court. (Id.) 4 Although the parties are in agreement that Wyndham’s response deadline is not until June 18, 2021, 5 Fed. R. Civ. P. 81(c)(2) provides that “[a] defendant who did not answer before removal must 6 answer or present other defenses or objections under these rules within . . . (C) 7 days after the notice 7 of removal is filed.” That deadline would be June 3, 2021. Accordingly, out of an abundance of 8 caution, the parties submit this stipulation and agree that Wyndham may have up to and including 9 June 18, 2021, to respond to the Complaint. 10 There exists good cause to allow Wyndham additional time to respond to the Complaint. The 11 parties are currently negotiating a stipulation to stay this action and compel arbitration with the AAA 12 as provided for in the contract between them. The parties anticipate submitting that stipulation in the 13 coming days. Should this matter be compelled to arbitration, Wyndham will not be required to file a 14 response in this forum, therefore, granting this stipulation conserves resources. 15 Wyndham requires additional time to gather the documents and facts so that it can adequately 16 respond to the Complaint. Plaintiffs agree to the extension of the response deadline. In addition, 17 This request is made in good faith and is not intended to unreasonably delay this matter. In 18 particular, this case was only recently filed and removed to this Court. The parties have not yet held 19 their case conference under Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f). 20 /// 21 /// 22 /// 23 /// 24 /// 25 /// 26 /// 27 /// 28 /// 2 Case 2:21-cv-01016-GMN-DJA Document 6 Filed 06/02/21 Page 3 of 3 1 2 3 4 Based on the foregoing, the parties respectfully request that this Court extend Wyndham’s deadline to respond to the Complaint to June 18, 2021.
