United States District Court, S.D. New York
August 22, 2005.
National Council of La Raza et al.
Department of Justice.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: LEWIS KAPLAN, District Judge
Dear Judge Kaplan:
With defendant's consent, plaintiffs in the above-captioned
case write to respectfully request an extension of time to submit
any bill of costs and application for attorneys' fees that may
currently be required to be submitted by August 22, 2005. This is
the first request for an extension.
Defendant took an interlocutory appeal from the Court's October
14, 2004 order requiring disclosure (with limited redactions) of
an April 2002 opinion of defendant's Office of Legal Counsel. The
Court of Appeals affirmed, and its mandate issued on July 22,
2005. To the extent that the Local Rules may require an
application for costs and fees within 30 days of the mandate
issuing, we respectfully request an extension up to and including
October 6, 2005.
Plaintiffs seek this extension with the consent of the
government so that the parties may attempt to resolve all issues
relating to costs and attorneys' fees without the need for
further litigation or other involvement of the Court.
