LANIER, Plaintiff, 10 11 vs. 12 FRESNO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT, 13 Defendant. 14 ORDER ON PLAINTIFF’S REQUEST FOR TWENTY-DAY EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT Doc. # 145 15 16 Currently before the court is a motion for summary judgment by defendant, Fresno 17 18 Unified School District (“Defendant”). On October 10, 2013, the court denied the motion of 19 plaintiff James Lanier (“Plaintiff”) for reconsideration of the court’s prior order dismissing 20 Plaintiff’s claim pursuant to 42 U.S.C.§ 1981. In that order, the court denied Plaintiff’s request 21 to stay consideration of Defendant’s motion for summary judgment except to the extent that 22 Plaintiff was given until October 21, 2013, to file an opposition to Defendant’s motion. On 23 October 15, 2013, the court received a request for further continuance of the deadline for 24 Plaintiff’s submission of an opposition for an additional twenty-day period. Plaintiff alleges he 25 lives on a small fixed income and will be unable to afford the expense of obtaining a copy of his 26 deposition and the costs of additional copying for at least an additional 20-day period. 27 28 A 1 The court perceives no prejudice as a result of Plaintiff’s requested extension of 2 time and recognizes that his limited income represents a significant difficulty in the preparation 3 of his opposition. The court will therefore grant the requested extension of time. 4 5 THEREFORE, for good cause shown an no prejudice appearing, it is hereby ORDERED 6 that Plaintiff shall file and serve any opposition to Defendant’s motion for summary judgment 7 not later than November 1, 2013. Defendant may file and serve any reply not later than 8 November 22, 2013. 9 10 11 IT IS SO ORDERED. 12 Dated: October 22, 2013 13 14 SENIOR DISTRICT JUDGE DEAC_Signature-END: 0m8i788 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 -2A
