UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 2, 2012
WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC. AND DOES 1-10,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: U.S. Magistrate Judge Carolyn K. Delaney
ORDER RE: STIPULATION TO EXTEND TIME TO RESPOND TO INITIAL COMPLAINT BY 28 DAYS [L.R. 144(a)] Current Response Date: May 3, 2012 New Response Date: May 31, 2012
Plaintiff WILLIAM DUBOSE ("Plaintiff") and Defendant WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC. ("Defendant"), by and through counsel and pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b)(1)(A) and Local Rule 144(a), hereby stipulate to a 28-day extension of time for Defendant to respond to Plaintiff's initial Complaint in this matter.
Defendant removed this action to the United States District Court for the Eastern District of California on April 26, 2012. Pursuant to Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 81(c)(2)(C), Defendant is required to respond to the Complaint on or before May 3, 2012. Pursuant to Eastern District Local Rule 144, the Parties stipulate and agree to extend this date by 28 days, to May 31, 2012. This extension is necessary because the Parties are currently attempting to resolve their disputes, and the extension will permit the Parties to resolve the matter and fully dismiss this action with prejudice without incurring the expense of filing unnecessary pleadings. There have been no previous extensions of time in this action and there appear to be no prejudice extending the time for Defendant to respond to the Complaint.
WHEREFORE, for the foregoing reasons, the parties stipulate to this extension for Defendant to file an answer or otherwise respond to the Complaint on or before May 31, 2012.
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
Dated: May 1, 2012 WILLIAM DUBOSE In Pro Per Dated: May 1, 2012 GINA CHANG LITTLER MENDELSON A Professional Corporation Attorneys for Defendant WAL-MART ASSOCIATES, INC.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
