Plaintiffs Marvin and Gloria Sapiro, pursuant to Fed.R.Civ. P. 6(b), respectfully request this Court to order a ten business day enlargement of time in which to respond to Defendants' pending Motion in Limine [DE 145] and Motion for Summary Judgment [DE 141] to February, 27, 2006. Plaintiffs will not request further extensions from the Court on this matter. Good cause exists to grant this unopposed motion in that: 1. The mediation scheduled for January 12, 2006 in Phoenix, with Joseph Epstein,

had to be rescheduled on January 10, due to the unexpected unavailability of counsel and of parties' representatives without whom mediation would not have been fruitful. The parties' counsel and Mr. Epstein are still attempting to reschedule the mediation for the earliest practicable date. In the meantime, Plaintiffs have continued to make progress in compromising

Medicare's claim out of Marvin Sapiro's recovery for medical expenses, as well as claims from insurance providers. 2. The deposition of Dr. Nierenberg, Mr. Sapiro's treating physician, which was

scheduled to occur in the interim, had to be cancelled due to a death in Dr. Nierenberg's family. Dr. Nierenberg's testimony is important both to the mediation and, potentially, to the pending motions. The parties are still endeavoring to reschedule this deposition as soon as practicable. Their efforts are complicated by Dr. Nierenberg's residence in Mississippi. 3. Additionally, Leonard Dunlap, the former Sunstone employee who has been

identified to Plaintiffs as the author of the most critical document in this case Sunstone's Engineering Standard Operating Procedures Manual whom Plaintiffs have endeavored to depose for several months, underwent major surgery earlier this month and is expected to be in recovery until mid-April, at the earliest. In sum, while the parties have been making steady progress towards resolving their dispute, necessary discovery is still to take place, and therefore it would further judicial economy for this brief, and last, extension to be granted.
