JAGDISH SINGH, ET AL. PLAINTIFFS,
MICHAEL CHERTOFF, SECRETARY OF HOMELAND SECURITY, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
THIRD JOINT STIPULATION RE: EXTENSION OF TIME IN WHICH TO FILE DEFENDANTS' ANSWER AND ORDER
This is an immigration case in which plaintiffs have challenged the delay in the adjudication of their applications to adjust status by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS). The parties have previously stipulated to two extensions of time for the government to file its answer to the complaint, to August 11, 2008. The parties respectfully inform the Court that during the latest extension period, CIS issued a Request for Evidence to Mr. Singh toward the end of clarifying the remaining issues in his pending application. It is anticipated that Mr. Singh will shortly submit to the agency his response to the Request for Evidence, and that CIS will be able to complete adjudication of the application soon after receipt of this response. To this extent, the government requests an additional 60 days to file an answer to the complaint; counsel for plaintiff does not oppose this request.
The parties therefore stipulate that the time for filing the government's answer be extended to October 11, 2008, and that any other filing dates be similarly extended to after that time.
