RICARDO S. MARTINEZ, Chief District Judge.
Plaintiff Abraham Ghorbanian, D.D.S., by his undersigned counsel, respectfully moves the Court to extend the noting date for Defendants Guardian Life Insurance Company of America ("Guardian") and Berkshire Life Insurance Company of America's ("Berkshire") ("collectively referred to as "Defendants") Motion for Spoliation Sanctions, Including Dismissal. This Motion is currently noted on the Motion Calendar for March 24, 2017. Plaintiff respectfully requests that the Noting Date on this motion be extended to April 14, 2017.
As grounds for this request Plaintiff states that the request is being made as counsel have travel commitments and scheduling conflicts with respect to this case and other cases making it difficult to meet the deadlines imposed under the March 24, 2017 Noting Date and, in response to this Motion, Plaintiff is contemplating obtaining declarations from various third parties who may be unavailable before the time Plaintiff's opposition is due under the March 24, 2017 noting date.
This request is being made in good faith and not for the purposes of delay. Extending the Noting Date to April 14, 2017 does not have an effect on any of the other case deadlines. Finally, Defendants have no opposition to the continuance of the Noting Date to April 14, 2017.
Therefore, Plaintiff respectfully requests that the Noting Date and all related deadlines for Defendants' Motion for Spoliation Sanctions, including Dismissal, be continued from March 24, 2017 to April 14, 2017.
Based on the above Unopposed Request to Extend the Noting Date for Defendants' Motion for Spoliation Sanctions, Including Dismissal, and for good cause shown, IT IS SO ORDERED that the Noting date on Defendants' Motion for Spoliation Sanctions is continued to April 14, 2017.
