time, not exceeding twenty days, is allowed.” Absent a showing of good cause, an
answer to the application shall be due within three days of the date of this order. Thus,
the respondents’ answer shall be due on or before Monday, March 3, 2014.1
THEREFORE, IT IS ORDERED as follows:
1. That the respondents shall file an answer to the Application [#1] by March 3,
See FED. R. CIV. P. 6 (a)(1)(C).

days of its filing.
Dated February 26, 2014, at Denver, Colorado.
