This matter is before the court on Petitioner’s Motion for Extension of Time
to File Notice of Appeal. (Filing No. 26.) Petitioner asks for an extension of 45
days in which to file his notice of appeal and request for certificate of
Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure requires a party to file a
notice of appeal within 30 days after the challenged judgment is entered. Fed. R.
App. P. 4(a)(1). Rule 4(a)(5) allows a party to move the district court to extend the
time to file a notice of appeal if “(a) he moves no more than thirty days after the
original thirty day deadline has passed, and (b) he shows good cause.” Pugh v.
Minnesota, 380 Fed. Appx. 558, 559 (8th Cir. 2010) (emphasis added).
Here, Petitioner has filed a timely motion to extend the time to file his notice
of appeal. For good cause shown, the court will grant Plaintiff’s motion. Plaintiff
has until January 17, 2018, to file notice of appeal. See Fed. R. App. P. 4(a)(5)(C)
(no extension under Rule 4(a)(5) may exceed 30 days after prescribed time to file
notice of appeal or 14 days after date when order granting motion is entered,
whichever is later).
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Petitioner’s Motion for Extension of
Time to File Notice of Appeal (Filing No. 26) is granted.
Dated this 8th day of December, 2017.
