JOINT STIPULATION RE: FOURTH EXTENSION OF TIME FOR ANSWER TO COMPLAINT AND ORDER
This is an immigration case in which plaintiff has challenged the delay in the processing of his application to adjust status to that of lawful permanent resident by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS). The parties have previously stipulated to three extensions of time, until February 1, 2010. The parties respectfully inform the Court that the matter has now been reopened at the administrative level, and it is expected that the case will be readjudicated within one additional 60 day period. Accordingly, the parties stipulate to an additional 60-day extension of time for the government to file its answer to the complaint, until April 1, 2010. As well, the parties request that the scheduling conference, currently set for March 1, 2010, be reset to sometime after the new answer date.
