VIA ECF Honorable Joanna Seybert United States District Judge U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York 100 Federal Plaza Central Islip, New York 11722 Re: Dear Judge Seybert: This firm represents Plaintiff John R. Riconda (Plaintiff or Riconda) in the above-referenced action. We respectfully write jointly with counsel for the Defendants to request an additional 30-day extension to respond to Defendants Motions to Dismiss and Motion for Transfer of Venue. If granted, the revised scheduling would be as follows: Plaintiffs deadline to submit opposition papers October 12, 2011 Defendants deadline to submit reply papers October 26, 2011 John R. Riconda v. Marc Sherman et al., Civil Action No. 11-CV-01556 (E.D.N.Y.) (Seybert, J.)

The parties are jointly requesting the present extensions because they are engaged in aggressive, good faith settlement negotiations and believe they will shortly be able to notify the Court of a concluded settlement agreement. This is our fourth request for an extension on the briefing deadlines for the motions. The oppositions to the motions were initially due April 21, 2011. On April 14, 2011, the parties requested a 30-day extension to submit opposition papers and a 14-day extension to submit reply papers. On May 13, 2011, the parties requested a 60-day extension to submit opposition papers and a 14-day extension to submit reply papers. On July 13, 2011, the parties

Honorable Joanna Seybert September 8, 2011 Page Two

requested a 30-day extension to submit opposition papers and a 14-day extension to submit reply papers. On August 9, 2011, the parties requested a 30-day extension to submit opposition papers and a 14-day extension to submit reply papers. All extensions were granted by the Court. The revised deadlines proposed above (and memorialized in the accompanying stipulation) will prejudice neither party. They also will not cause undue delay; pursuant to Judge Boyles Order dated April 6, 2011, the parties filed a joint discovery plan and a proposed case management order, and each party served and filed initial disclosures pursuant to FRCP 26. We thank the Court for its kind consideration of this application.

Respectfully submitted,

Joshua A. Berman
