Dear Judge Broderick,
I am an Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Office of the Hon. Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix,
Corporation Counsel of the City of New York, representing Defendant, the City of New York (“the
City”), in the above-referenced matter. In accordance with the Amended Case Management Plan
and Scheduling Order of August 3, 2022, see CM/ECF No. 59, I submit this joint letter to advise
the Court of the status of this case. In addition, the parties respectfully request that the postdiscovery conference scheduled for October 5, 2022 (ECF No. 59) be adjourned until after the
mediation, scheduled for October 7, 2022, is concluded. This is the parties first request for this
Regarding discovery, Plaintiff Oluseyi Adeniji was deposed on August 25, 2022.
Additionally, from the City’s perspective, the only outstanding discovery-related matter is that Mr.
Adeniji produced tax-return release authorizations and an unemployment-records release
authorization that contained missing information and therefore cannot be executed. The City has
identified the missing information for Mr. Adeniji and asked him to provide new authorizations,
and he has agreed to do so.
A first mediation session is scheduled for October 7, 2022.
If the parties are unable to resolve this dispute at mediation, the City intends to file a motion
for summary judgment.

In order to conserve judicial resources and allow the parties to focus on settlement, the
parties respectfully request that the Court adjourn the post-discovery conference until after the
parties have had an opportunity to mediate this case.
Zachary T. Ellis
Assistant Corporation Counsel
Pro-Se Plaintiff Oluseyi Adeniji and all counsel of record (via CM/ECF)
