State of New York, et al. v. Mnuchin et al., No. 18-cv-6427 (JPO)
Dear Judge Oetken:
We write on behalf of the Plaintiff States of New York, Connecticut, Maryland, and
New Jersey in the above-captioned action. We write respectfully to request a one-week
extension of time to file the States’ upcoming reply brief in support of our cross-motion for
summary judgment. The States’ reply brief is currently due on March 15, 2019. See ECF No.
52. If granted, the reply brief would be due on March 22, 2019.
This extension is requested due to the professional obligations of the attorneys
principally responsible for preparing and reviewing the reply brief. The attorneys are
responsible for preparing multiple state and federal court briefs over the next three weeks,
including a brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit in Consumer Financial
Protection Bureau v. RD Legal, LLC, No. 18-2743, which is due on March 15, 2019. In
addition, two of the attorneys who are principally responsible for drafting the reply brief in
this case are preparing for a Second Circuit argument on March 8, 2019, in State of New York
v. United Parcel Service, Inc., No. 17-1993. Many of the deadlines that we are now facing
were set before or during the shutdown when we were unable to anticipate the revised
schedule in this case.
This is the first extension requested by Plaintiffs. Defendants have consented to the
