THAYER Assistant Corporation Counsel t: (212) 356-2649 f: (212) 356-1148| e: May 6, 2022 Via ECF The Honorable Steward D. Aaron United States District Court for the Southern District of New York 500 Pearl Street New York, NY 10007 Re: Molina v. Brann, et al., Case No. 20 CV 9483 (GHW)(SDA) Dear Magistrate Judge Aaron: I am an Assistant Corporation Counsel in the Office of the Corporation Counsel of the City of New York, the Honorable Sylvia O. Hinds-Radix, attorney for the Defendants in the above-referenced action. I write to respectfully request a 3-week extension of the date by which Defendants must file their motion for summary judgment in this action. In connection with a second request for an extension of the time to complete discovery, (ECF No. 52), on January 12, 2022, the Court set the deadline for motions for summary judgment to be filed as May 9, 2022. (ECF No. 53.) The Defendants’ requested 3-week extension of this deadline, to May 30, 2022, accommodates numerous pressing professional obligations in several cases assigned to myself after colleagues’ recent departures and will permit measured consideration and presentation of the bases for Defendants’ anticipated motion for summary judgment. Case 1:20-cv-09483-GHW-SDA Document 57 Filed 05/09/22 Page 2 of 2 This is Defendants’ first request for an extension of the time by which to file motions for summary judgment, though as suggested above, this deadline has previously been moved twice in connection with changes to the discovery schedule. I am unable to seek Plaintiff’s consent in advance of this application due to his incarceration in State custody. I thank the Court for its consideration of this application. Respectfully yours, /s/ David S. Thayer David S. Thayer cc: Via First-Class Mail Luis Molina DIN 21-A-2742 Attica Correctional Facility 639 Exchange Street Attica, NY 14011-0149 Plaintiff pro se 2
