UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SACRAMENTO DIVISION
May 4, 2009
STEPHEN WONG, PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, DEFENDANT.
STIPULATION AND ORDER TO EXTEND TIMEFOR DEFENDANT TO FILE OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF'S OPENING BRIEF
The parties, Plaintiff, STEPHEN WONG , and Defendant, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY, through their respective counsel, stipulate that the time for filing defendant's opposition to plaintiff's opening brief be extended from May 4, 2009, to June 3, 2009.
This is defendant's third request for an extension of time to file a response to plaintiff's opening brief. Defendant needs the additional time in order for the undersigned attorney of record for Defendant, SARAH RYAN, Special Assistant United States Attorney (SAUSA), to confer with Defendant regarding the issues and merits of the case. The first two extension were required because the undersigned SAUSA was on medical leave from February 27, 2009, for surgery and recuperation through April 13, 2009. During the recuperation period said attorney attempted a reduced workload, but was unable to attend to this case. Therefore, Defendant requests that a third extension the briefing deadline of thirty days, until June 3, 2009, be granted for Defendant to file his response and supporting authority, and that all other deadlines be extended according to the Court's scheduling order.
Dated: May 1, 2009

LAWRENCE G. BROWN Acting United States Attorney
LUCILLE GONZALES MEIS Regional Chief Counsel, Region IX Social Security Administration
