THE REQUEST IS DENIED. THE USE OF A GENERIC PHRASE SUCH AS "TO PERMIT FURTHER NEGOTIATIONS AND INVESTIGATION" DOES NOT ESTABLISH GOOD CAUSE. IT IS A PHRASE THAT COULD BE USED IN EVERY CASE, AND DOES NOT GIVE AN ADEQUATE REASON WHY THE NEGOTIATIONS AND INVESTIGATION HAVE NOT BEEN CONDUCTED IN A TIMELY FASHION.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
