ORDER GRANTING LIMITED EXTENSION by Hon. William Alsup granting 16 Motion for Extension of Time to File.(whalc1, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 1/28/2013)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
For the Northern District of California

ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND, et
No. C 12-05809 WHA
ORDER GRANTING EXTENSION
HVFG LLC, et al.,
Defendants’ counsel requests an extension of ten days in which to file a motion to
dismiss the complaint. This is unreasonable. The parties should be aware that extensions of any
type generally will not be granted. It is disappointing, however, that counsel were not able to
resolve this issue on their own by stipulation, particularly where there is no apparent prejudice to
plaintiffs’ counsel from a short extension. Moreover, given the questions raised by the
complaint regarding standing, venue, and other issues suitable for a motion to dismiss, judicial
efficiency favors robust briefing at this early stage.
Defendant shall answer or file its motion no later than FEBRUARY 1 AT NOON.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: January 28, 2013.
