Aaron Singleton v. City of New York et al.,
Dear Judge Carter:
I am the Assistant Corporation Counsel assigned to represent Defendants City of New
York, Office of the Mayor, and New York City Department of Correction Commissioner
Cynthia Brann (the “Defendants”) in the above-referenced action. I write to respectfully request
a 5-page enlargement of the page limit set forth in Your Honor’s Individual Practices (Rule 2.B),
from 25 to 30 pages for Defendants’ motion to dismiss, and a one-week extension of Defendants’
time to file and serve this motion, from April 29 to May 6, 2021.
As Defendants’ motion intends to be fully dispositive of all of Plaintiff’s claims,
additional pages are required to fully address Plaintiff’s complaint, which alleges numerous
violations of his constitutional rights in connection with the conditions of confinement at Rikers
Island (vermin, mattress, access to the law library, COVID-19 precautions, etc.), and deliberate
indifference to his medical needs, among other allegations. I also respectfully request a one-week
extension of time to file and serve Defendants’ motion, with the additional time requested which
will allow me fully and appropriately address Plaintiff’s complaint in its entirety.
This is Defendants’ first request for an extension of time, and extension of pages.
Due to Plaintiff’s incarceration, I have not obtained his consent to these requests.
If this request is granted, the briefing schedule, which was ordered on April 1,
2021 (Dkt No. 16) would be modified as follows:
April 1, 2021 and
April 29, 2021
May 6, 2021
June 10, 2021
June 14, 2021
June 18, 2021
June 25, 2021
Thank you for your consideration of these requests.

Defendants' request is granted; however,
Plaintiff's incarceration is not a sufficient excuse
not to obtain Plaintiff's consent. If Defendants
seek another extension of time, they must attempt
to obtain Plaintiff's consent.
