Eric S. Cohan, Stephanie Syptak-Ramnath, Antony Blinken, Unopposed Motion for Extension of Time (Fourth Request) Defendants. 16 17 The Federal Defendants respectfully move for a 30-day extension of time, from 18 November 20, 2023, to December 20, 2023, to file a response to Plaintiff’s Complaint (ECF 19 No. 1). This is the fourth request for an extension of time. Undersigned defense counsel has 20 inquired with Plaintiff’s counsel, who agrees with this request. Indeed, Plaintiff’s counsel 21 would like additional time to confer with his client. 22 MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 23 Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b)(1) and Local Rule IA 6-1 allow a party to 24 request additional time to perform an act. In this case, the Federal Defendants request 25 additional time to file a response to the Complaint for the reasons set forth below. 26 Without admission or waiver by the parties, the parties continue to assess recent 27 developments at the agency level. Plaintiff’s counsel would like additional time to confer 28 with his client. Defense counsel has a number of pressing matters in other cases including a 1 motion for summary judgment due on November 20, 2023, and an upcoming settlement 2 conference for which settlement authority must be sought. Additionally, there is the 3 prospect of a lapse of congressionally-funded appropriations on November 17, 2023. 4 Lapses of appropriations negatively affect the availability of personnel at the USAO, client 5 agencies, or both to conduct business. 6 This motion is filed in good faith and not for the purposes of undue delay. 7 Accordingly, Federal Defendants respectfully request, and Plaintiff’s counsel consents to, 8 this extension of time, from November 20, 2023, to December 20, 2023, to file a response 9 to Plaintiff’s Complaint. 10 11 12 13 14 Respectfully submitted this 14th day of November 2023.
