Plaintiffs Marvin and Gloria Sapiro, pursuant to Fed.R.Civ. P. 6(b), respectfully request this Court to order a fifteen 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 13, 2006. 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 attempting to reschedule the mediation as soon as possible. In addition, Plaintiffs have made initial progress in compromising Medicare's claim out of Marvin Sapiro's recovery for medical expenses.

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. Neirenberg's family. Dr. Nierenberg's testimony is important both to the mediation and, potentially, to the pending motions. The parties are also endeavoring to reschedule this deposition as soon as practicable. Their efforts are complicated by Dr. Nierenberg's residence in Mississippi. 3. Additionally, the deposition transcript of Dr. Teeters, Defendants' expert witness,

became available only on January 19, 2006; his testimony may also affect the issues raised in these motions. In sum, because the parties have been making steady progress towards resolving their dispute, it would further judicial economy for this brief extension to be granted.
