1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 11 SUSAN MAE POLK, Plaintiff, 12 13 14 15 No. C 08-1483 MMC (PR) ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S REQUEST TO EXTEND FUTURE DEADLINES v. DEPUTY JAMES CAVIN, et al., Defendants. / 16 17 Before the Court is plaintiff Susan Mae Polk’s “Request for Order to Extend Future 18 Deadlines for Plaintiff’s Reply to Opposition Briefs,” dated November 12, 2012 and filed 19 November 19, 2012. In said request, plaintiff seeks a six-week extension of the December 20 6, 2012 deadline to file opposition to defendants’ motion for summary judgment, in light of 21 plaintiff’s having recently been transferred to a prison in Corona, California. Having read 22 and considered plaintiff’s motion, the Court rules as follows. 23 On October 17, 2012, plaintiff filed a request for an extension of time, asserting she 24 needed additional time to file her opposition in light of her recent transfer to the Corona 25 facility. By order filed November 6, 2012, the Court denied plaintiff’s request. In said order, 26 the Court noted that, under the present schedule and as a result of numerous extensions 27 plaintiff has been afforded, plaintiff will have close to one year to prepare her opposition, 28 and, further, that plaintiff failed to show why she could not complete her opposition by the 1 2 existing deadline. It appears plaintiff had not received the Court’s order of November 6, 2012 by the 3 date on which she mailed the instant request. In any event, plaintiff, in her most recent 4 request for an extension, again fails to show that, as a result of her recent transfer or 5 otherwise, she cannot in the exercise of reasonable diligence complete her opposition by 6 December 6, 2012. 7 Accordingly, plaintiff’s request is hereby DENIED. 8 IT IS SO ORDERED. 9 10 Dated: November 26, 2012 MAXINE M. CHESNEY United States District Judge 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
