IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 29, 2009
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
APPROXIMATELY $13,896.00 IN U.S. CURRENCY, AND APPROXIMATELY $12,310.00 IN U.S. CURRENCY, DEFENDANTS.
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
Plaintiff, United States of America ("Plaintiff"), and claimant, Joshua Patrick Snider ("Claimant"), by and through their respective counsel, hereby request that the joint status report currently due on June 26, 2009, be continued for approximately 55 days, or effectively until August 20, 2009.
Plaintiff and Claimant make this request for the following reasons: Plaintiff and Claimant have agreed to extend Claimant's time to file his claim to the defendant funds to July 15, 2009. Because Claimant's counsel is currently in the process of preparing his client's claim and answer in this action, Claimant's counsel is not in a position yet to contribute meaningfully to the process of conferring on the matter as required by Rule 26(f) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and to the preparation of a resulting joint status report as required by the Court's Order on April 22, 2009.
As soon as the need became apparent, counsel for Plaintiff and Claimant have 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: June 24, 2009
For the reasons set forth above, the parties shall submit a joint status report on or before August 20, 2009.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
