Defendants respectfully move for an extension of thirty days, until September 4, 2013, toanswer or otherwise respond to the complaint (ECF No. 1). Pursuant to Local Rule 7(m), theundersigned counsel has conferred with counsel for plaintiffs, who represents that he does notoppose this motion. In support of this motion, defendants respectfully submit that there existsgood cause for it to be granted as follows:Defendants seek the additional time requested herein due to the detail and length of thecomplaint (65 pages) and the breadth of the claims brought by plaintiffs, who allege violations of their privacy rights resulting from alleged improper disclosures of confidential, personalinformation. Responding to plaintiffs’ allegations and claims requires that undersigned counselconfer with multiple agencies and several government officials. Although these efforts are beingundertaken diligently and expeditiously, additional time is needed to conclude this process. Thisrequested extension is further motivated by the fact that certain employees of one of thedefendants, the Department of Defense, are currently furloughed one day a week.
