Stephens v. Create Restaurants NY Inc., et al., 21-cv-5846 (JPC)
Dear Judge Cronan:
This firm represents Plaintiff Shaquille Stephens in the above-referenced wage and hour/
employment discrimination lawsuit brought against Defendants Create Restaurants NY Inc. and
NYC 004 213 E 45th St NY LLC. On December 12, 2022, the parties informed the Court that
they had reached a settlement in principle to resolve this matter. ECF 35. On December 13,
2022, the Court ordered that the parties submit their settlement for a Cheeks review by no later
than January 10, 2023. ECF 36. Due to a calendaring error, the parties missed that deadline, and
on January 12, 2023, the Court ordered that the parties submit their settlement by today. ECF 37.
While the parties have exchanged drafts of the settlement agreement and are close to finalizing
and then executing it, they need to additional time to do so. As such, we write now, with
Defendants’ consent, to request that the Court extend the parties’ deadline to file their settlement
agreement to January 24, 2023.
We thank the Court for its time and attention to this matter.
To: All counsel via ECF
Caitlin Duffy, Esq.
