U.S. Department of Justice United States Attorney Southern District of New York 86 Chambers Street New York, New York 10007 June 3, 2024 BY ECF The Honorable Vernon S. Broderick United States District Judge United States Courthouse 40 Foley Square New York, New York 10007 Re: Dated: June 5, 2024 Riverkeeper, Inc. v. Regan, No. 17 Civ. 4916 (VSB) Dear Judge Broderick: On behalf of defendants U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and Michael Regan, in his official capacity as Administrator of the EPA (jointly, “defendants”), I write to respectfully request a limited extension of the June 5, 2024 deadline for the parties to submit a joint status letter to the Court and of the June 10, 2024 deadline for the current stay of the litigation. (ECF No. 200). Defendants respectfully request leave for the parties to file a joint status letter on June 27, 2024, and for the current stay of litigation to end on July 2, 2024. Plaintiffs and intervenor-defendants New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (“NYSDEC”) and the City of New York consent to this request. Since the parties filed their last status report on March 7, 2024 (ECF No. 199), the defendants and NYSDEC provided written responses to plaintiffs’ February 29, 2024 letter, and plaintiffs submitted a written response to those letters on May 24, 2024. The brief extensions are therefore requested to permit the parties to continue their discussions regarding the correspondence that has been exchanged over the last three months. We thank the Court for its consideration of this request. Respectfully, DAMIAN WILLIAMS United States Attorney /s/ Tomoko Onozawa By: TOMOKO ONOZAWA Assistant United States Attorney Tel: (212) 637-2721 Fax: (212) 637-2686 tomoko.onozawa@usdoj.gov cc (via ECF): All counsel of record
