Defendant, through his undersigned attorney, moves for a 30-day extension of time up to and including May 24, 2009 (day 30 falls on a Sunday), in which to respond to Plaintiff's Motion for Miscellaneous Relief.

From mid-March through April,23, 2010, Counsel has had to or will have to file briefs in 12 district court cases plus she has drafted voluntary remand requests in 3 additional cases and is drafting a brief in a Ninth Circuit case. Counsel will be out of the office from April 26 through May 7, 2010 and must complete and file 4 of the aforementioned briefs prior to her departure. Given this work load, Counsel is unable to complete the Commissioner's brief by the April 23, 2010 due date and respectfully requests an additional 30 days.
