We represent Plaintiff Aliea Hughes-Phillips (“Plaintiff”) in the above-referenced
matter. We join with Defendant New York Life Insurance Company (“New York Life” or
“Defendant”) to request that the Court adjourn the Initial Pretrial Conference currently scheduled
for February 19, 2021, ECF No. 9, and related deadlines, as a result of the parties agreement to
engage in good faith settlement discussions. This is the parties’ first request to extend out these
Specifically, the parties request that the Court either: (i) enter a stay of all proceedings;
or, if it is the Court’s preference, (ii) extend out all applicable deadlines by thirty days. The
deadlines that would be implicated are as follows:
New York Life’s deadline to answer or otherwise respond to the complaint,
which is currently February 12, 2021 (if the Court extended this deadline by
thirty-days, it would be extended until March 15, 2021);
The parties’ deadline to provide a joint proposed case management plan to the
Court, which is currently February 12, 2021; and
The Court’s Initial Pretrial Conference, which is currently scheduled for
February 19, 2021.
Should the Court extend the time before the Initial Pretrial Conference, instead of staying
the matter, the parties are available for a rescheduled conference on March 26, 2021, April 2,
2021, or April 9, 2021.
The parties are to submit a joint letter
by March 15, 2021 updating the Court
