ORDER STRIKING PLAINTIFF’S
REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL NOTICE FROM
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
(ECF No. 14)
On July 14, 2017, Plaintiff filed this action. On July 17, 2017, the Court issued a
18 scheduling order. (ECF No. 3-1.) The scheduling order states that Plaintiff’s reply brief shall be
19 filed with the Court within 15 days after service of Defendant’s responsive brief. Defendant’s
20 responsive brief was filed on March 23, 2018. (ECF No. 13.) Therefore, the deadline for
21 Plaintiff to file a reply brief was April 9, 2018.
On April 10, 2018, Plaintiff filed a reply brief, which she docketed as a request for
23 judicial notice. (ECF No. 14.) Therefore, Plaintiff’s reply brief was filed a day late. Plaintiff
24 did not file a stipulation or motion to file her reply brief nunc pro tunc.
In the Court’s January 5, 2018 order denying the stipulation for an extension of time to
26 file the opening brief as unnecessary, the Court advised the parties that requests for modification

2 modify the briefing schedule done after a deadline, the party seeking an extension must show
3 additional good cause why the matter was filed late with the request for nunc pro tunc.
Therefore, the request for judicial notice shall be stricken from the record. If Plaintiff
5 wishes to file a reply brief, she must file a request to file her reply brief nunc pro tunc, setting
6 forth the appropriate legal rationale, along with her reply brief.2
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the request for judicial notice (ECF No.
8 14) is STRICKEN FROM THE RECORD.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
