The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gershon, United States District Judge
By letter dated October 13, 2006, plaintiff seeks leave to amend its June 29, 2005 Amended Complaint. Plaintiff further requests that "repleading be deferred until at least 10 days after the Receiver completes a report detailing Olympia 'transactions that appear not to be in the ordinary course of business.'" By letter dated October 16, 2006, defendant Shaindy Pinter opposes plaintiff's request and, in the alternative, requests that she "not be required to answer the amended complaint until after the plaintiff serves its new pleading or, if plaintiff decides not to replead, until 20 days after that decision is communicated in writing to Shaindy Pinter's counsel."
Cross-claim plaintiff, Olympia Mortgage Corporation, also requests permission to amend its pleading. By letter dated October 19, 2006, cross-claim plaintiff seeks leave to amend the crossclaims asserted in its October 18, 2005 Amended Answer (the "Amended Crossclaims"). Like plaintiff, cross-claim plaintiff requests that repleading be deferred until after the Receiver completes her report.
Initially, neither plaintiff nor cross-claim plaintiff were granted leave to amend their pleadings because neither party sought permission for it. Pursuant to their current requests, however, plaintiff and cross-claim plaintiff are granted leave to amend the Amended Complaint and the Amended Crossclaims, respectively, and shall do so no later than 10 days after their receipt of the Receiver's report. Defendant Shaindy Pinter shall answer any Second Amended Complaint or Second Amended Crossclaims, once filed, within the time frame prescribed by the federal rules. Should plaintiff or cross-claim plaintiff decide not to replead, defendant Shaindy Painter shall answer the Amended Complaint or the Amended Crossclaims no later than 20 days after that decision is communicated to her counsel in writing.
