IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 30, 2012
TIFFANY SODANO; JASON SODANO, PLAINTIFFS,
CHASE BANK USA, NA; CHASE BANK CARD SERVICES, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Presently before the court is plaintiff Tiffany Sodano's ex parte request for a 30-day extension of time in which to file a further amended complaint in this case (Dkt. No. 21).*fn1
The undersigned denies Ms. Sodano's ex parte as prematurely filed.
On May 1, 2012, the undersigned filed findings and recommendations in this case that, among other things, recommended the dismissal of plaintiffs' Amended Complaint with leave to amend. (See Findings & Recommendations at 16-17, Dkt. No. 18.) Plaintiffs' deadline to further amend their Amended Complaint will be set by a separate order and will run from the date that the district judge assigned to this case resolves the undersigned's recommendations. No party objected to the findings and recommendations, and the district judge has not yet adopted or rejected the undersigned's pending recommendations. Because the time within which plaintiffs must file a further amended complaint has not yet begun to run, Ms. Sodano's ex parte request is premature. Accordingly, the undersigned denies Ms. Sodano's request as prematurely filed.
For the reasons stated above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff Tiffany Sodano's ex parte request for a 30-day extension of time in which to file a further amended complaint (Dkt. No. 21) is denied without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
