Plaintiff filed this section 1983 case pro se and in forma pauperis on November 13, 2013.
Currently before the Court is Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time to File Amended Complaint.
ECF No. 11. In this Motion, Plaintiff requests additional time to file the Court directed Amended
Complaint pursuant to the Court’s December 10, 2013 Order (ECF No. 9). Plaintiff explains in
his Motion that he was released from jail and suffered an illness that prevented him from meeting
the Court’s January 6, 2013 deadline. This case is not currently set for a trial or hearing, the
Motion does not appear to be filed with the purpose of harassment or delay, and neither party will
be prejudice by granting the requested extension.
The Court finds good cause for the extension is shown. Accordingly, the Motion for
Extension of Time to File Amended Complaint (ECF No. 11) is hereby GRANTED. Plaintiff
is DIRECTED to file his Amended Complaint pursuant to the instructions given in the Court’s
December 10, 2013 Order by February 25, 2014.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 4th day of February 2014.
