1 2 3 4 5 6 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 8 9 11 For the Northern District of California United States District Court 10 ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND, et al., 12 Plaintiffs, 13 14 15 No. C 12-05809 WHA ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION v. HVFG LLC, et al., Defendants. / 16 17 Defendants’ counsel requests an extension of ten days in which to file a motion to 18 dismiss the complaint. This is unreasonable. The parties should be aware that extensions of any 19 type generally will not be granted. It is disappointing, however, that counsel were not able to 20 resolve this issue on their own by stipulation, particularly where there is no apparent prejudice to 21 plaintiffs’ counsel from a short extension. Moreover, given the questions raised by the 22 complaint regarding standing, venue, and other issues suitable for a motion to dismiss, judicial 23 efficiency favors robust briefing at this early stage. 24 Defendant shall answer or file its motion no later than FEBRUARY 1 AT NOON. 25 26 IT IS SO ORDERED. 27 28 Dated: January 28, 2013. WILLIAM ALSUP UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
