ORDER GRANTING IN PART
PLAINTIFF’S REQUEST FOR
EXTENSION TO SUBMIT OBJECTIONS
TO MAGISTRATE JUDGE’S ORDER OF
NOVEMBER 27, 2012
DEPUTY JAMES CAVIN, et al.,
Before the Court is plaintiff’s “Request for an Extension and/or Stay in Order to
Submit Objections to the Magistrate’s 11-27-12 Order Denying Plaintiff’s Motion to
Compel,” dated by plaintiff December 13, 2012 and filed with the Clerk of the Court on
December 17, 2012. Defendants have not filed a response thereto.
In her request, plaintiff seeks an extension of the deadline to file objections to
Magistrate Judge Joseph Spero’s order of November 27, 2012, specifically, an extension to
March 30, 2013. In light of plaintiff’s statement, undisputed by defendants, that prison
officials have denied plaintiff access to her legal materials and to the law library, the Court
finds good cause has been shown for an extension. As to the length of any such
extension, however, the Court further notes that, subsequent to the filing of the instant
request, plaintiff filed a motion in which she states her legal materials were returned to her
by prison officials on December 17, 2012 and that she has been provided with some
access to case law. (See Mot. to Substitute at 2.) Consequently, the Court finds an
extension of the length sought by the instant request is unnecessary.
Accordingly, plaintiff’s request for an extension is hereby GRANTED in part, and the
Court hereby extends to January 25, 2013 the deadline for plaintiff to file and serve any
objections to the Magistrate Judge’s order of November 27, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 2, 2013
MAXINE M. CHESNEY
United States District Judge
