IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 6, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
APPROXIMATELY $26,335.71 IN U.S. CURRENCY SEIZED FROM UMPQUA BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER 990492050 HELD IN THE NAME OF GARCIA'S MEATS, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
STIPULATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE JOINT STATUS REPORT AND ORDER [PROPOSED]
Plaintiff United States of America and claimants Enrique Garcia and Eva Cervantes ("Claimants"), by and through their respective counsel, hereby request that the joint status report currently due on February 9, 2009 be continued for approximately 60 days, or effectively until April 10, 2009.
Plaintiff and Claimants make this request for the following reasons: Plaintiff and Claimants had agreed to extend Claimants' time to file their claim to the defendant currency to February 9, 2009. Because Claimants' counsel is currently still in the process of preparing his clients' claim and answer in this action, he is not in a position to contribute meaningfully to the process of conferring on the matter as required by Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f) and to the preparation of a resulting joint status report as required by the Court's Order on November 25, 2008.
As soon as the need became apparent, counsel for Plaintiff and Claimants conferred about an extension of time to file the joint status report and, without delay, hereby make their request.
As required under Rule 6-144(b) of the Local Rules of Practice for the United States District Court, Eastern District of California, the Plaintiff and Claimants hereby represent that no prior extensions of time have been sought in regard to the filing of the joint status report.
Dated: February 4, 2009
IT IS SO ORDERED.
