C08-5645 TEH ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S EX PARTE APPLICATION FOR ORDER EXTENDING TIME TO FILE FIRST AMENDED COMPLAINT IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 At the April 27, 2009 motion hearing, this Court ordered Plaintiff to file an amended 16 complaint on or before May 26, 2009. On May 28, 2009, at approximately 5:00 PM, 17 Plaintiff filed an ex parte application stating its belief that the deadline for filing the amended 18 complaint was May 27, 2009, and seeking an order extending the deadline to June 10, 2009. 19 Plaintiff stated that it was prepared to file the amended complaint and would do so "by 20 5:30 p.m. today [May 28] if the proposed order is not signed by the Court." Appl. at 2. 21 However, the Court did not sign the proposed order, and Plaintiff failed to file an amended 22 complaint. Defendants subsequently filed an opposition to Plaintiff's request at 23 approximately 6:30 PM on May 28, 2009. 24 As Defendants correctly observe, not only was Plaintiff's ex parte application filed 25 after the deadline set by the Court, but it was filed even after the date, May 27, that Plaintiff 26 mistakenly believed to be the deadline. Such conduct is unacceptable. The Court will not 27 impose sanctions at this time, but counsel are advised that the Court will not tolerate future 28 disregard for Court deadlines. 1 IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff shall file its amended complaint by 6:00 PM 2 today. This should be no hardship since Plaintiff stated that the amended complaint has 3 already been drafted and was ready to be filed as of 5:30 PM yesterday. 4 5 IT IS SO ORDERED. 6 7 Dated: 05/29/09 8 9 10 THELTON E. HENDERSON, JUDGE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
