The delay does not appear to have been a willful violation of court rules. Because Defendants filed their Motion just two days after the answer was due, and because Defendants' failure to file did not appear to be an intentional delay, Defendants' Motion (Doc. No. 5) is GRANTED, and Plaintiff's Motion is DENIED as to Defendants Byrd, Randall, and Brown. IT IS SO ORDERED this 27th day of July, 2009. /s/Wm. R. Wilson, Jr. UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 1 Doc.
