Attorney for Appellant Righthaven LLC
I, Shawn A. Mangano, Esq., declare, under penalty of perjury, that the
following is true and correct:
I am an attorney-at-law admitted to practice before all courts of the
State of Nevada. I have personal knowledge of the facts set forth below, except for
those factual statements expressly made upon information and belief, and as to
those facts, I believe them to be true. I am over eighteen years old and I am
competent to testify to the matters set forth herein.
I represent Appellant Righthaven LLC (“Righthaven”) in the above-
This declaration is in support of Righthaven’s motion for an extension
of time to file its opening brief pursuant to Circuit Rule 31-2.2(b) (the “Motion”).
The Motion requests an 8-day extension of time for Righthaven to file its opening
brief in this appeal. If the Motion is granted, Righthaven will file its opening brief
on or before November 22, 2011.
Righthaven’s request for an extension of time is supported by
diligence and substantial need. I have been waiting for a date from my doctor to
have a surgical procedure performed based on a medical necessity. I have been
advised that this surgical procedure will be performed tomorrow, November 15,
2011. Due to scheduling conflicts between the surgical center and my surgeon, I
was only recently advised that the procedure will be performed tomorrow morning.
As a result, I have had to diligently work to adjust my calendar and to tend to
urgent client matters before undergoing the operation. I have additionally been
required to tend to pre-operative issues and administrative matters in a short period
of time that has resulted in my inability to meet the November 14, 2011 opening
brief filing date in this matter.
Righthaven’s opening brief was due on Monday, November 14, 2011.
This was following a 14-day telephonic extension of time that was granted for
Righthaven to file its opening brief in this appeal.
Righthaven hereby requests an 8-day extension of time to file its
As set forth herein, Righthaven and its counsel have exercised
diligence and the opening brief will be filed on or before November 22, 2011
should its Motion be granted.
Opposing counsel consented to the requested extension of time.
The Court reporter is not in default as Righthaven has not designated
any transcripts for this appeal.
Signed and affirmed this 14th day of November, 2011.
