          RICARDO S. MARTINEZ CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE.

         JOINT STIPULATION

Old Deadline

New Deadline

December 30, 2019

Noting Dated

January 3, 2020

January 31, 2020

         On December 3, 2019, the Court entered the Parties' proposed order dismissing the case without prejudice and retaining jurisdiction to resolve disputes arising under the settlement. Dkt. No. 22. Plaintiff filed a motion for attorneys' fees and costs on December 17, 2019, with a noting date of January 3, 2020. Dkt. No. 23.

         Defendants seek an extension to respond to Plaintiff's motion for two reasons. First, due to the holidays, many personnel, including counsel for Defendants will be out of the office, causing the December 30, 2019, response deadline to be inadequate. Second, and more importantly, both Parties have expressed that they are open to discussing settlement of fees and costs, which would obviate the need for Plaintiff's motion. However, Defendants will require additional time prior to engaging in settlement discussions as counsel will need to seek the appropriate settlement authorizations beforehand. As this is the only remaining issue in this case, there is good cause to grant the Parties' stipulated request because if settled, further briefing in regards to Plaintiff's motion would be unnecessary. Accordingly, the Parties request the extensions set forth above.

         ORDER

         The parties having so stipulated and agreed and for good cause shown, it is SO ORDERED. The time to respond to Plaintiff's Motion for Fees and Costs (Dkt. No. 23) is as follows:

Deadline

Old Deadline

New Deadline

Defendants' filing of opposition papers

December 30, 2019

January 27, 2020

Plaintiff's filing of reply papers

January 3, 2020

Noting Dated
