STIPULATION AND [PROPOSED] ORDER FOR EXTENSION TO FILE A RESPONSIVE PLEADING
Pursuant to Local Rule 6-1(a), it is hereby stipulated by and between plaintiffs, CELESTINO GARCIA and SAUL ALTAMIRANO (collectively "Plaintiffs") and defendants, 19 HM ISLAMIC, INC. and SHIH-KWEI CHEN (collectively "Defendants"), through their 20 respective attorneys, that Defendants shall have up to and including December 18, 2011 within 21 which to answer or otherwise respond to Plaintiffs' Complaint filed on October 6, 2011.
Defendants only recently retained counsel to defend this case. Defense counsel requires 23 additional time to investigate the factual and legal aspects of this case before filing an 24 appropriate response. 25

Absent the requested extension, Defendant's response would have been due on November 17, 2011. 5 6
