          RENEWED MOTION TO EXTEND TIME TO RESPOND TO COMPLAINT

          Peggy A. Leen United States Magistrate Judge

         Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b), Defendants, OCWEN FINANCIAL CORP., MORTGAGE ELECTRONIC REGISTRATION SYSTEMS, INC., MERSCORP HOLDINGS INC. hereby request an order granting additional time, up to and including April 1, 2017, to file a responsive pleading to Plaintiff's pro per Complaint. Defendants have retained new counsel for joint defense of this action, and are diligently working to complete the transition process. This is Defendants' second request for an extension of this deadline and is not presented for any dilatory or prejudicial purpose.

         This Motion is based upon the attached points and authorities, the Declaration of Michael Hogue, Esq., the pleadings and papers on file herein and any argument of counsel that may be considered at the hearing on this Motion by the Court.

         POINTS AND AUTHORITIES

         Plaintiff commenced this lawsuit on December 16, 2016, by filing his pro per Complaint (ECF No. 1). The Complaint spans 75 pages, asserts 16 causes of action, and includes 236 separate factual allegations that require individual response. The Complaint identifies as defendants: Ocwen Financial Corp. (“Ocwen”), Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc. (“MERS”), MERSCorp Holdings Inc. (“Merscorp”), among the 26 separate individual and entity defendants named. This Court previously granted Defendants an extension to respond to the Complaint up to and including March 1, 2017. Defendants have since retained new counsel to further their joint defense, and are working to complete the transition process. By this Motion, Defendants jointly request an extension of time to respond up to and including April 1, 2017. This request is being made pursuant to F.R.C.P. 6(b)(1)(A) as the time period to respond to the Complaint has not yet passed for any of the Defendants.

         Good cause exists to extend the time to respond to the pro per Complaint because of the transition of defense to new counsel. The requested time is needed for new counsel to investigate the facts and analyze the applicable law in order to prepare a response. Moreover, multiple defendants will need to review and approve the substitution of attorney and response to Complaint before it can be filed. Defendants submit that the additional time requested is reasonable and not intended to cause undue delay or prejudice.

         CONCLUSION

         For these reasons, Defendants respectfully request an extension of the time to respond to Plaintiff's Complaint until April 1, 2017.

         IT IS ORDERED that the Motion to Extend Time (ECF No. 39) is GRANTED and Defendants Ocwen Financial Corp., Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems, Inc., and Merscorp Holdings, Inc. shall have up to and including April 1, 2017, ...
