Bonneville, Ste. 250 Las Vegas, Nevada 89101 (702) 388-6577 (702) 388-5819 (fax) 8 Attorneys for Petitioner Carl Bradley. 1 2 3 4 5 6 9 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 10 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 11 12 CARL BRADLEY, 14 15 16 Case No. 2:13-cv-01196-RFB-GWF Petitioner, 13 v. ATTORNEY GENERAL OF THE STATE OF NEVADA, et al., Respondents. 17 UNOPPOSED MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO FILE AMENDED PETITION FOR WRIT OF HABEAS CORPUS (Second Request) 18 Petitioner Carl Bradley, by counsel, moves this Court for the entry of an Order 19 extending the time in which she must file an Amended Petition for Writ of Habeas 20 Corpus by 60 days from May 30, 2017 to, and including, July 28, 2017. This motion 21 is based on the attached points and authorities and the record. 22 23 POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 1. Two weeks ago, counsel sought a short 15-day extension to complete 24 Bradley’s petition explaining that a majority of it was already completed. In the 25 intervening weeks, counsel continued working on the petition and has made 26 additional progress on it. 1 2. When counsel asked for such a short extension, she did not appreciate 2 how difficult it would be to get ahold of Bradley, who has been moved from USP 3 Lewisburg in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, to USP Florence ADMAX in Florence, 4 Colorado. Counsel had to speak to Bradley before she could file the petition. 5 3. Thanks to counsel’s assistant’s concerted efforts to reach someone at the 6 prison, counsel and Bradley were able to speak by phone on May 25, 2017. Bradley is 7 unable to call counsel and can only communicate by letter unless counsel can schedule 8 a telephone call with him, but scheduling a call is difficult. 9 4. The short request was also based on two upcoming oral arguments in 10 the Ninth Circuit counsel has the week of June 12. Counsel wanted to complete her 11 work on Bradley’s case in order to carve out time dedicated only to oral argument 12 preparation beginning June 1. 13 5. Based on counsel’s telephone call with Bradley, her investigation is not 14 yet complete. Her call coupled with information provided through discovery requires 15 additional time to determine whether the basis for one of Bradley’s claims exists. 16 6. It is not counsel’s intention to frustrate the court by asking for several 17 short extensions. Rather, this request takes into consideration the work left to be 18 done on Bradley’s case as well as her upcoming schedule. It is not made for the 19 purposes of delay, but rather in the interests of justice, as well in Bradley’s interests. 20 The requested extension will provide counsel with the time necessary to complete and 21 file the amended petition. 22 7. On May 30, 2017, counsel exchanged e-mails with Deputy Jeffrey 23 Connor, who does not object to this request, with the caveat that his lack of objection 24 is not to be construed as a waiver or concession of any kind. 25 26 2 1 8. For the reasons above, as well as the record in this case, Bradley 2 respectfully asks this Court to grant his request for an extension of time and enter 3 an order requiring the amended petition be filed on or before July 28, 2017. 4 5 Dated this 30th day of May, 2017. Respectfully submitted, 6 RENE L. VALLADARES Federal Public Defender 7 8 /s/ Amelia L. Bizzaro 9 AMELIA L.
