IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 18, 2009
SUSAN JETTE AND BARBARA ANN JETTE, INDIVIDUALS, PLAINTIFFS,
ORANGE COUNTY FINANCIAL, INC., A CORPORATION; MORTGAGEIT INC., A CORPORATION; INDYMAC FEDERAL BANK, FSB: TIEMPO ESCROW II, A CORPORATION; JERRY INDES, AN INDIVIDUAL; MR. MINGUS, AN INDIVIDUAL, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
Defendant Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("F.D.I.C.") moves for an order to be issued under 12 U.S.C. § 1821(d)(12)(A)(ii) staying this action for 90 days. Defendants Mortgage IT Inc., Orange County Financial Inc., and Jeremy Indes do not oppose the motion but request that pleading deadlines and scheduling dates be continued 90 days following the requested stay. Plaintiffs oppose the motion, but fail to provide sufficient reason justifying denial of the motion.
Since the statute on which F.D.I.C. relies supports its motion, its request for a stay will be granted.
Further, on May 22, 2009 Defendant Menges (sued in this action as "Mr. Mingus") filed a motion in which he seeks to be dismissed as a party, arguing that service of process on him was untimely and that he has not been provided sufficient opportunity to disclose experts because of the untimely service. However, Defendant Menges has not shown that his motion should be granted under the circumstances here where the below order will provide him with sufficient opportunity to participate in the scheduling of this action.
F.D.I.C.'s motion to stay is granted; therefore, this action is stayed for 90 days. Further, the Scheduling Order filed November 18, 2008 is vacated; and a status conference is scheduled to commence at 9:00 A.M. on October 5, 2009; a joint status report shall be filed fourteen days before the status hearing.
