1 2 3 4 5 6 7 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 8 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 9 10 11 ELAINE K. VILLAREAL, 12 13 v. Case No. 1:15-cv-01410-DAD-EPG (PC) Plaintiff, ORDER GRANTING IN PART DEFENDANT’S REQUEST FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE RESPONSIVE PLEADING 14 15 16 COUNTY OF FRESNO and SHERIFF MARGARET MIMS, (ECF NO. 101) Defendants. 17 18 On March 23, 2018, defendant County of Fresno filed a request for an extension of time to 19 respond to the First Amended Complaint. (ECF No. 101). Defendant County of Fresno asks for 20 additional time so that it can “evaluate the complaint and the joint County Defendants' potential 21 responses thereto” (defendant Sheriff Margaret Mims was added as a defendant in the First 22 Amended Complaint). (Id. at 2). Defendant Fresno of County “requests that the deadline for 23 both Defendant's responses (assuming Defendant Mims is properly served by April 9, 2018) 24 actually be extended to April 30. 2018. If Defendant Mims is not properly served by April 9, 25 2018 (9+21days =30th), then Defendant requests the deadline be extended to the 21st day after 26 the day service is properly effected.” (Id. at 1). 27 The Court finds good cause to grant defendant County of Fresno’s request in part. As it is 28 not clear when defendant Mims will be served, the Court will not grant defendant County of 1 1 Fresno’s request that both defendants be given 21 days from after defendant Mims is served to 2 file a responsive pleading. However, the Court will extend the date to respond to April 30, 2018. 3 If defendant County of Fresno or defendant Mims needs additional time to respond, they can file 4 another request for an extension. 5 Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that defendant County of Fresno shall file its responsive 6 pleading to Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint no later than April 30, 2018. If defendant Mims 7 is served on or before April 9, 2018, defendant Mims shall file her responsive pleading to 8 Plaintiff’s First Amended Complaint no later than April 30, 2018. 9 10 11 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: March 26, 2018 /s/ UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
