UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
TIMOTHY FILSON, et al.,
In this habeas corpus action, brought by Nevada prisoner Julius Bradford, the respondents
were due, after an extension of time, to respond to Bradford’s second amended habeas petition by
June 12, 2017. See Order entered January 13, 2017 (ECF No. 66); Order entered March 16, 2017
(ECF No. 69).
On June 12, 2017, respondents filed a motion for an extension of time (ECF No. 71),
requesting a further extension of time, of 70 days. Respondents’ counsel states that the extension of
time is necessary because of a change of the attorney representing the respondents. The petitioner
does not oppose the motion for extension of time.
The court finds that respondents’ motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not
solely for the purpose of delay, and that there is good cause for an extension of time. The court
recognizes that this is a relatively complex habeas corpus action, with an extensive record, and the
court notes that there has been a change in counsel representing respondents. The court will,
therefore, grant a second lengthy extension of time for respondents to respond to the second
amended petition. The court will extend that deadline by 91 days, to September 11, 2017. However,
given the length of this extension of time, and the previous extension, the court will not be inclined
to further extend this deadline.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that respondents’ Motion for Extension of Time
(ECF No. 71) is GRANTED. Respondents shall have until September 11, 2017, to answer or
otherwise respond to the second amended habeas corpus petition in this action.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, in all other respects, the schedule for further
proceedings set forth in the order entered January 13, 2017 (ECF No. 66) shall remain in effect.
Dated this _____ day of ________________________, 2017.
