United States District Court, S.D. New York
March 31, 2004.
DARLINGTON AMADASU MD, Plaintiff, -against- MARGARET ROSENBERG, MD, et al., Defendants
The opinion of the court was delivered by: LEWIS KAPLAN, District Judge
Plaintiff moves for a 60 day extension of time within which to object
to Magistrate Judge Peck's February 23, 2004 order and for a stay thereof
pending the determination of his objections. He contends that he needs
the transcript of the proceedings before Judge Peck in order to prepare
his objections, that it will take a month to obtain them, and that he
needs an additional month thereafter for research.
The order in question did no more than direct plaintiff to file an
amended complaint by March 26, 2004, a direction with which it appears he
has not complied. Plaintiff has shown no basis for staying the order.
Having reviewed the transcript of the proceedings that resulted in entry
of the order, the Court perceives none. The motion for a stay is denied.
The Court is unpersuaded that plaintiff requires anything approached 60
days to prepare objections to the order. The proceedings have been
transcribed, and the transcript is available to plaintiff the court
reporters immediately upon payment of the requisite fees.
Plaintiff's motion is denied in all respects, save that the Court
extends plaintiff's time to file the amended complaint to and including
April 14, 2001 and extends his time to serve and file any objections to
Magistrate Judge Peck's order to and including April 21, 2004.
