The opinion of the court was delivered by: Morrison C. England, Jr. United States District Judge
AMENDED STIPULATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE JOINT STATUS REPORT AND ORDER
Plaintiff United States of America and third-party Gregory Tepenkiozis ("Tepenkiozis"), by and through their respective counsel, hereby request that the joint status report currently due on August 28, 2009 be continued for approximately 35 days, or effectively until October 2, 2009.
Plaintiff and Tepenkiozis make this request for the following reason: Tepenkiozis is in the process of possibly resolving the related criminal matter, 2:09-cr-00017-MCE, which possible resolution could determine whether the civil action will proceed. Counsel for both plaintiff and Tepenkiozis have discussed this matter and agree that, in light thereof, neither is in a position currently 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, which must include the Rule 26(f) discovery plan, as required by the Court's Order filed on April 23, 2008.
As soon as the need has become apparent, counsel for Plaintiff and Tepenkiozis 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, Plaintiff and Tepenkiozis hereby represent that one prior extension of time (of a total period of 60 days) has been sought in regard to the filing of the joint status report.

Dated: August 27, 2009 Mark J. Reichel Attorney for Third-Party Gregory Tepenkiozis (Attorney signature authorized by email)
For the reasons set forth above, the parties shall submit a joint status report on or before October 2, 2009.
