Weddle v. Baca

United States District Court, D. Nevada

August 23, 2019

RICHARD WEDDLE, Plaintiff,
v.
ISIDRO BACA, et al., Defendants.

          AARON D. FORD Attorney General

          DOUGLAS R. RANDS, Senior Deputy Attorney General Attorneys for Defendants

          MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO RESPOND TO DISCOVERY

         Defendants David Carpenter, Pamela Feil, and Jason O'Dea, by and through counsel, Aaron D. Ford, Attorney General of the State of Nevada, and Douglas R. Rands, Senior Deputy Attorney General, hereby hereby submit their Motion for Extension of Time to File Responses to Plaintiffs Discovery requests. (First Request). This Motion is based on Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b)(1)(A), the following Memorandum of Points and Authorities, and all papers and pleadings on file in this action.

         MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES

         I. ARGUMENT

         Defendants respectfully request an extension of time from the current deadline (August 22, 2019) to respond to Plaintiffs Discovery in this case. Plaintiff has served multiple requests for admissions on the Defendants. The Court previously granted an extension of time to reply to other discovery requests in this matter. The new due date for that discovery would be September 23, 2019. The Defendants respectfully request an extension, until that date, for responses to the Requests for Admissions.

         Defense counsel submits that this Division has experienced a wave of recent retirements and departures. Although the Division is depleted, new Deputy Attorneys General (DAGs) have arrived to help restore normal functionality. However, the Division is still attempting to catch up on all the cases. Defense counsel respectfully requests this extension to accommodate the new arrivals and the Division during this transition period. Additionally, Counsel is preparing for a Jury Trial in front of Judge Du which is set to commence on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, which is further stretching the resources of this office.

         Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b)(1) governs extensions of time and provides as follows:

When an act may or must be done within a specified time, the court may, for good cause, extend the time: (A) with or without motion or notice if the court acts, or if a request is made, before the original time or its extension expires; or (B) on motion made after the time has expired if the party failed to act because of excusable neglect.

         Defendants' request is timely and will not hinder or prejudice Plaintiffs case, but will allow for a thorough opportunity to respond to the discovery requests. The requested extension of time should permit the parties time to adequately research draft, and submit discovery in this case. Defendants assert that the requisite good cause is present to warrant the requested extension of time. Therefore, the Defendants request an extension, until September 23, 2019, to respond to Plaintiffs requests for admissions.

         IT IS SO ORDERED.

         DECLARATION OF DOUGLAS R. RANDS

         1. I, Douglas R. Rands, am over the age of 18 and am otherwise fully competent to testify to the facts contained in this declaration.

         2. The statements contained in this declaration, except where otherwise indicated to be upon information and belief, are ...
