Bourne jcbourne@locklaw.com Direct: 612.596.4090 VIA ECF The Honorable Jennifer L. Rochon United States District Court 500 Pearl Street, Room 1920 New York, NY 10007 Re: The request is granted. Defendant shall respond to July 3, 2024 the Complaint by August 12, 2024. The initial pretrial conference is adjourned from July 24, 2024 to August 28, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. Dated: July 3, 2024 New York, New York SO ORDERED. Guery v. DraftKings, Inc., Court File 1:24-cv-02921-JLR Dear Judge Rochon: JENNIFER L. ROCHON United States District Judge Pursuant to Your Honor’s Individual Rule of Practice 1(F), Plaintiff Guery submits this joint letter motion to (1) adjourn the initial pretrial conference set for July 24, 2024, and (2) extend the deadline for Defendant DraftKings to respond to the Complaint, which is set for July 12, 2024. DraftKings’ response to the Complaint was initially due on May 20, 2024. See ECF No. 21. At DraftKings’ request, the Court granted a first extension of this deadline, to June 28, 2024. See ECF No. 21. On June 20, 2024, DraftKings informed the Court that the parties were “discussing various threshold issues with the lawsuit that may assist them in narrowing or resolving the dispute,” and it requested an additional two-week extension. See ECF No. 35. The Court granted that second extension of the deadline for DraftKings to respond to the Complaint, making the deadline July 12, 2024. See ECF No. 36. The parties continue to investigate and discuss those threshold issues. Because those discussions could potentially obviate the need for motion practices or Court appearances, it would be more efficient for the parties to continue those discussions and extend the current deadlines. Therefore, the parties jointly request that the Court approve a 30-day extension of DraftKings’ deadline to respond to the Complaint (August 12, 2024), and to adjourn the initial pretrial conference until after August 12, 2024. The parties have conferred and agreed on the following three proposed dates for the pretrial conference: LOCK RIDG E G RINDA L NA UEN PLLP The Honorable Jennifer L.
