IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
YORK COUNTY SHERIFF’S
CASE NO. 4:11CV3100
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time and Motion
to Transfer. (Filing Nos. 7 and 8.) For the reasons set forth below, Plaintiff’s Motions are
Plaintiff filed a Motion for Extension of Time on August 4, 2011. (Filing No. 7.)
Plaintiff’s Motion is very difficult to decipher. As best as the court can tell, Plaintiff seeks
an extension of time for any and all deadlines set by the court in this matter. However,
there are no deadlines currently pending (see Docket Sheet), and the court declines to
enter a blanket extension of time for all future deadlines it may set. As such, the court will
deny Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time, but will do so without prejudice to reassertion
in the event the court imposes a deadline that Plaintiff is unable to meet.
Plaintiff filed a “Motion to Transfer” on August 4, 2011. (Filing No. 8.) In his Motion,
Plaintiff seeks the right to remove an action currently pending in state court to federal court.
(Id.) However, in order to remove an action from state to federal court, Plaintiff must
comply with the proper procedure for removal set forth in 28 U.S.C. § 1446, including filing
“a short and plain statement of the grounds for removal” and a copy of all process,
pleadings, and orders served upon him in the state-court action. See 28 U.S.C. § 1446(a).
Here, there is no indication that Plaintiff complied with the proper procedure for removal
set forth in the federal rules. As such, his “Motion to Transfer” (Filing No. 8) will be denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s Motion for Extension of Time (Filing No. 7) is denied without
prejudice to reassertion; and
Plaintiff’s “Motion to Transfer” (Filing No. 8) is denied.
DATED this 10th day of August, 2011.
