Further extensions will not be granted except for unforeseeable emergencies demonstrated by affidavit October 31, 2010. Plaintif f's application for further discovery is denied. As I have previously noted, in his second amended complaint, plaintiff should describe the John Doe defendants in as much detail as possible.
