Smith v. Warden
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINES 13 16 (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 11/6/2013)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
(CDCR # AC 8729),
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINES
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 13-206 SI (pr)
RANDY GROUNDS, Warden,
Respondent has filed a motion to dismiss. Before respondent even filed the motion on
October 30, 2013, petitioner filed a request for a 90-day extension to respond to that motion to
dismiss. The amount of time requested is excessive in light of the straightforward nature of
respondent's motion, but the court will grant a more limited extension of the deadline, so that
petitioner has more than two months to prepare his opposition. Petitioner's request for an
extension of the deadline is GRANTED. (Docket # 16.) On or before January 17, 2014,
petitioner must file and serve his opposition to the motion to dismiss. On or before January 31,
2014, respondent must file and serve his reply brief, if any.
Petitioner's motion for an oral argument on the motion to dismiss is DENIED. (Docket
# 13.) The court prefers to decide pro se prisoner matters on the written briefs because they
generally are much more effectively organized than oral presentations.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: November 6, 2013
