IN THE UNITED STATES COURT OF FEDERAL CLAIMS WISER CONSTRUCTION LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY, Plaintiff, v. THE UNITED STATES, Defendant. ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) )

No. 08-275C (Judge Bruggink)

DEFENDANT'S CONSENT MOTION FOR ENLARGEMENT OF TIME Pursuant to Rule 6(b)(1) of the Rules of the United States Court of Federal Claims ("RCFC"), defendant, the United States, respectfully requests a 60-day enlargement of time, to and including August 12, 2008, within which to file its response to the complaint. Our response is currently due on June 13, 2008. This is defendant's first request for an enlargement of time for this purpose. The undersigned has contacted plaintiff's counsel, who has stated that plaintiff consents to this motion. The enlargement is requested because we have not yet received a litigation report from the interested agency, the United States Army Corps of Engineers ("Corps of Engineers"), as required by 28 U.S.C. 520. Agency counsel has stated that the Corps of Engineers is working diligently to complete the litigation report, but it does not expect to complete the litigation report before mid-July. The additional time is necessary to allow sufficient time for agency counsel to complete the litigation report and for counsel to review the litigation report and prepare the Government's response to the complaint. For the foregoing reasons, defendant respectfully requests that the Court grant this unopposed motion for an enlargement of time.
