PLAINTIFFS’ MOTION TO EXTEND TIME TO SERVE DEFENDANTS


AND MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT
ula
Pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m), plaintiffs, Daniel Parisi, Whitehouse.com Inc.,

Whitehouse Network LLC, and White House Communications Inc. (collectively referred to as

“plaintiffs”), by counsel, hereby move for an extension of time to January 15, 2011 to serve the

summons and complaint on defendants, Ingram Content Group Inc. and Lightning Source Inc.
eg

(collectively referred to as “defendants”). In support of this motion, plaintiffs state as follows:

Plaintiffs filed the complaint in the action on June 10, 2010. They have not yet served

the defendants. The parties have been engaged in communications and discussions to attempt to

resolve this case. Plaintiffs want to ensure, however, that the action is not dismissed for failure
eR

to effect timely service.

Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(m) provides, in relevant part, that:

If a defendant is not served within 120 days after the


complaint is filed, the court — on motion or on its own after notice
to the plaintiff — must dismiss the action without prejudice against
Th

that defendant or order that service be made within a specified


time. But if the plaintiff shows good cause for the failure, the court
must extend the time for service for an appropriate period.
