City to Request Extension to October 30, 2020 for People to File Answers

At the next Status Conference on August 17, the City of Ventura will ask the Court to extend the deadline for people to file an answer to the City’s Third-Amended Cross-Complaint to October 30, 2020.  The current deadline to file an answer is September 8, 2020. The City and the other parties working on a locally proposed plan and court-approved settlement agreement (called a “physical solution”) are planning to release the document on September 15.  Extending the deadline to file an answer to October 30 will enable people to review the proposed document before they decide whether to enter the case by filing an answer. The City will share whether the extension request was granted by the Court as soon as possible after the Status Conference on the afternoon of August 17.
