IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 14, 2011
BERNADETTE IRIGOYEN, PERSONALLY
AND ON BEHALF OF ALL SIMILARLY SITUATED,
FIRST GUARANTY FINANCIAL
CORPORATION, ET AL.,
ORDER ON STIPULATION TO CONTINUE HEARING AND CONTINUE TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER (Doc. No. 13)
On July 6, 2011, the Court granted Plaintiff's request for a temporary restraining order and restrained Defendants from conducting a foreclosure sale of Plaintiff's residence. See Court's Docket Doc. No. 11. The Court ordered the defendants to file an opposition by 3:00 p.m. July 12, 2011, to Plaintiff's motion for a preliminary injunction. See id. The Court ordered Plaintiff to file a reply by 5:00 p.m. July 14, 2011. See id. The show cause hearing on Plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction was set for July 18, 2011. See id.
On July 12, 2011, Plaintiff and Defendants Aurora Loan Services, LLC ("Aurora") and Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (MRS") filed a stipulation. See id. at Doc. No. 13. The stipulation provides that hearing would be moved from July 18, 2011, to August 29, 2011; the temporary restraining order would remain in full force until the August 29, 2011, hearing; the time for Aurora to file and serve its opposition would be extended to August 1,2011; and the time for Plaintiff to file and serve her reply would be extended to August 15, 2011. See id. The stipulation was not signed by Defendants First Guaranty Financial Corp. ("FGF"), Westchester Funding ("WF"), or Cal-Western Reconveyance Corp ("CWR"). See id.
FGF, WF, and CWR failed to file an opposition on July 12, 2011. Further, FGF, WF, and CWR filed no response to the stipulation filed by Plaintiffs and Aurora and MERS. The Court will construe the failure of FGF, WF, and CWR to file any opposition to Plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction, as will as their lack of response to the stipulation, to be a tacit agreement to the terms of the stipulation. So construed, the Court will give effect to the stipulation.
Accordingly, in light of the July 12, 2011, stipulation, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The July 18, 2011, show cause hearing is RESET to August 29, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. in Courtroom No. 2 in Fresno, California;
2. Defendants shall file any opposition to Plaintiff's motion for preliminary injunction on or by August 1, 2011;
3. Plaintiff shall file a reply to any opposition on or by August 15, 2011; *fn1 and
4. The temporary restraining order issued on July 6, 2011 (Doc. No. 11) shall remain in full force and effect until the August 29, 2011, hearing.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
