ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO WITHDRAW GRANTING MOTION TO RESCHEDULE PRETRIAL DEADLINES ORDER SETTING DEADLINE TO RESPOND TO MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
JAMES I. COHN, District Judge.
THIS CAUSE is before the Court upon the Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment [DE 50], the Motion to Withdraw as Counsel for the Defendant [DE 53], Plaintiff's Notice of Counsel Withdrawing from Case and Request to Reschedule Mediation, Pretrial, and Trial Dates [DE 58], and the United States'
Agreed Motion to Stay All Deadlines Pending Adjudication of the Government's Motion for Summary Judgment [DE 59]. The Court has carefully considered the filings and is otherwise fully advised in the premises.
Plaintiff United States of America filed this action against several defendants to reduce to judgment Defendant Ramon Toledo's various federal income tax liabilities, foreclose upon federal tax liens on a specific piece of property owned by Ramon Toledo, and to sell the property at a public sale to pay off the judgment. After filing an Answer [DE 13], Defendant Ramon Toledo
filed for bankruptcy. (Ramon's wife), the homeowners' association wherein the property is located, and a contractor who purportedly worked on the home, were subject to a final summary judgment default ending any interest they had in the subject property [DE 39]. The remaining defendant, Defendant Countrywide Home Loans
, Inc., filed an answer with affirmative defenses alleging the priority of its mortgage lien versus the federal tax liens. The Court granted the United States' motion for summary judgment that its tax lien has priority over Defendant Countrywide's interest with regard to the federal tax lien for the year 1994.
After Ramon Toledo's second bankruptcy case was dismissed, the Court reopened this case. Plaintiff has now moved for summary judgment. A response to that motion was due by April 26, 2010. Meanwhile, on April 12, 2010, Mr. Toledo
's counsel, Michael Frank, moved to withdraw. No objection to that motion has been received. Rather, Plaintiff himself filed a request seeking to obtain new counsel and asking for a 60 day extension of all deadlines. The United States has now filed an agreed motion to continue the present deadlines until the motion for summary judgment is adjudicated.1
In the interest of justice, the Court will grant Mr. Toledo's pro se request for a 60 day extension of time from April 23, 2010, the date of his request. Therefore, his response to the motion for summary judgment shall be due by June 22, 2010. No further extensions shall be granted absent extraordinary circumstances, even if Mr. Toledo does not find an attorney. The Court will grant the motion to withdraw. As for the Agreed Motion, the Court will reset the deadlines rather than granting a stay.
Accordingly, the Court having carefully reviewed all filings and being otherwise fully advised in the premises, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED as follows:
1. Defendant's Counsel's Motion to Withdraw as Counsel for the Defendant [DE 53] is hereby GRANTED;
2. Attorney Michael A. Frank, Esq. and the firm of Brooks, Frank and De La Guardia shall have no further responsibility for this action;
3. Defendant Ramon Toledo's Notice of Counsel Withdrawing from Case and Request to Reschedule Mediation, Pretrial, and Trial Dates [DE 58] is hereby GRANTED;
4. Ramon Toledo's Response to the United States' Motion for Summary Judgment [DE 50] shall be due by June 22, 2010;
5. The United States' Agreed Motion to Stay All Deadlines Pending Adjudication of the Government's Motion for Summary Judgment [DE 59] is hereby GRANTED in part and DENIED in part, in that no stay will issue but the remaining deadlines are extended; Last we heard from Toledo of SearchGuy.com :
Additionally, the company will hire an accounting firm to provide the necessary filing to be listed on the Over the Counter by mid 2007.
Toledo said, "Mr. Carlos Escalante has joined the new management team as Chief Financial Officer (CFO). Carlos is the co-founder and CEO of Viastara, LLC and is the shaper of our value-oriented corporate culture. Due to his congenial personality, unique salesmanship and wide network of industry contacts in Mexico and Latin America, he has shaped Viastara into a profitable international business in less than a year. Viastara's value proposition is based on Carlos's many years of building and managing relationships in Mexico and beyond. Now, SearchGuy will leverage these relationships to connect its represented brands into the Mexican market quickly and effectively. Carlos has served for six years as General Manager for Mexico and Latin America at Gateway Computers, Inc. He was responsible for all operations, strategy and business development activities in that region. In a relatively short period, he obtained the representation of leading U.S., Canadian, and English brands in the consumer electronics and accessory market. He has successfully connected these products into the Mexican market and gained significant presence at the major retail and industry distribution channels. Carlos holds an MBA from Columbia University and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from San Diego State University. He is a Certified Public Accountant in the State of California and was a pioneer in facilitating the intricacies of NAFTA.
We also welcome Mr. Eric Willis, who has joined SearchGuy as our Chief Technology Officer. His knowledge and expertise will add strength to our IT support. Eric Willis is primarily focused in the technology / marketing / strategic integration areas. Having over 8 years of experience with Search engine technology, Eric is a great addition to the SearchGuy team. One of his talents lies in spotting new areas of opportunity in emerging technologies, especially web based, and trends other technology entrepreneurs have either yet to see or are unable to capitalize on without significant capital expenditures or development time. He prefers working on technology ventures that require no physical products or storage and instead offer automated services with a much lower overhead. This philosophy has allowed him to develop highly profitable companies and web based applications in the areas of emerging technology and online marketing with very little seed capital or cost of maintenance. It has also allowed him to spot trends using information retrieval and analysis on a large scale and then capitalize on those trends in each web application and service enhancement. His focus will be in forming a technical platform and strategy by which to create a clear leading market strategy for SearchGuy." Ramon Toledo
adds, "We have several new releases slated for the first quarter of 2007: A Spanish meta-search engine, a Chinese meta-search engine, and a social news offering just to name three. We expect 2007 to be a breakout year for SearchGuy. Our first release in the next two weeks will be a very sweeping redesign that is not only a grand increase in usability and navigation for our users, but also provides an exponential increase in speed. We are fully committed to providing our users with a great search experience." Toledo continued, "Going forward, we will maintain a sharp focus on innovating our technology in a way that delivers real user value. We have innovative
technology, a strong roster of customers and business partners and an extremely talented group of employees. I look forward to continuing to work closely with our business partners and customers. We are currently positioning SearchGuy to have a lighthouse identify and we will fully reveal that strategy soon. 2007 will reveal a more transparent SearchGuy with a very definitive approach to the marketplace."
In conclusion, Toledo stated: "that he is committed to developing share holder value and has no intention of increasing the authorized shares
, causing a reverse merger or any manipulation to dilute the value of SearchGuy." He is obligated to the share holder and has pledged to build value for SearchGuy investors. Toledo also added that he has personally retired all debt including positions held by former management. "We have cleaned the slate and are debt free. We enter 2007 with new management, a fresh approach and feel that the sky is the limit for SearchGuy."
