First Data Merchant Services LLC and Fiserv, Inc., Case No. 1:23-cv-03702-LGS Dear Judge Subramanian: As you know, Polsinelli PC represents Defendants First Data Merchant Services LLC (“FDMS”) and Fiserv, Inc. (“Fiserv”) (collectively, “Defendants”). On October 25, 2023, Plaintiff Z Payments Corp. (“Plaintiff”) served on Defendants Plaintiff’s Revised First Request for Admissions to Defendants, Plaintiff’s Revised First Set of Interrogatories to Defendants, and Plaintiff’s Revised First Notice to Produce Documents to Defendants (collectively, the “Discovery Requests”). Defendants’ answers, responses, and objections to the Discovery Requests are currently due on November 24, 2023. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 33(b)(2), 34(b)(2)(A), and 36(a)(3). On November 13, 2023, the Court granted Plaintiff’s counsel’s Motion for Leave to Withdraw as Counsel for Plaintiff and allowed Plaintiff until December 4, 2023, to retain new counsel. (ECF No. 41.) The Court also ordered that “Defendants’ deadline to respond to the complaint is extended to 3 weeks after Plaintiff's new counsel enters a notice of appearance on the docket.” (Id.) In light of the Court’s most recent Order and to preserve party resources where this case cannot proceed until Plaintiff’s counsel appears, Defendants respectfully request the Court similarly stay Defendants’ obligations to answer, respond, or object the Discovery Requests until three (3) weeks from the date Plaintiff’s new counsel enters a notice of appearance on the docket, and for any other relief this Court deems just and proper. This request is made in good faith and not for the purposes of vexation, harassment, or undue delay. No party will suffer prejudice because of the requested stay. Defendants' request is GRANTED. The Clerk of Court is directed to terminate the motion at ECF No. 42. SO ORDERED. Sincerely, /s/ John W. Peterson John W. Peterson Arun Subramanian, U.S.D.J.
