Brieant Jr. Federal Building and United States Courthouse 300 Quarropas Street White Plains, New York 10601-4150 Re: Hinerfeld v. Gina DeCrescenzo, P.C. Case No. 23-cv-008810-CS Our File No. 9020.0001 Dear Judge Seibel: We represent Defendants in this Action. We write on behalf of all Parties to: (1) request that the case be referred to Magistrate Judge Krause for a settlement conference and (2) and a stay of the current discovery deadlines. First, as discussed during the Preliminary Conference, the Parties had engaged in settlement negotiations prior to the filing of this lawsuit but believed that some discovery was necessary before resuming settlement talks. The Parties have exchanged discovery and are ready to proceed to a settlement conference. This is an appropriate juncture in the case to try and settle before the Parties begin costly depositions and additional electronic discovery. Second, the Parties request a stay of the current discovery deadlines pending the settlement conference with the Court. The current deadline for completion of discovery is July 18, 2024. If settlement negotiations are unsuccessful then the discovery deadlines can be reset. This short stay will afford the Parties the opportunity to focus on settlement without the discovery deadline looming. We leave it to the Court’s discretion whether to adjourn the July 30 status conference or keep it as a control date.
