UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHER DISTRICT OF TEXAS DALLAS DIVISION SUSAN CHANG, as Next Friend of Alison Chang, a minor, And Justin Ho-Wee Wong Plaintiffs, v. Virgin Mobile Pty Ltd., Defendant. CAUSE NO. 3:07-CV-01767 UNOPPOSED MOTION TO EXTEND DEADLINE TO RESPOND TO DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO DISMISS Plaintiffs file this Motion for Continuance, respectfully requesting that the Court extend the deadline to file their response to Defendant's Motion to Dismiss for a period of 90 days until April 10, 2008. Plaintiffs respectfully request this continuance so that they may have sufficient time to conduct jurisdictional discovery and acquire evidence to substantiate the basis for filing suit in this Court . Discovery--including but not limited to requests for production, interrogatories, requests for admission and the deposition of corporate representatives having knowledge of the relationship between Defendant and its parent companies, Singtel Optus and Singtel Group--will enable Plaintiffs to establish, among other things, that Defendant has the contacts necessary to subject it to personal jurisdiction in this Court. 1 Upon the Court's approval, Plaintiffs will schedule and conduct the relevant jurisdictional discovery at a time mutually convenient to both parties. This continuance is not sought for delay only, but so that justice may be done. CONCLUSION For these reasons, Plaintiffs respectfully request that the Court extend their deadline to respond to Defendant's Motion to Dismiss for a period of 90 days until April 10, 2008. Respectfully submitted, /s/ Ryan H. Zehl____________________ Ryan H.
