Plaintiff requests that its time to respond to Defendants' motion be extended until
ten days after the settlement conference, or until November 9, 2007, so that, in the intervening period, Plaintiff can focus its attention on attempts to settle and resolve this matter short of trial. 4. 5. Defendants have been consulted and consent to the proposed extension. Plaintiff has not previously requested an extension to the deadline for the filing of
its response to Defendants' motion. 6. This request is not submitted for the purpose of delay, and the requested
enlargement of time will not unduly delay the Court's judgment in this matter. Accordingly, Plaintiff respectfully requests that the Court grant this motion and that the deadline for Plaintiff to respond to Defendants' Motion for Leave to Amend Answer be extended to and including November 9, 2007. Respectfully submitted, this 17th day of August, 2007.
