1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 7 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 8 9 DEBARON SANDERS, 10 Petitioner, 11 vs. 12 2:14-cv-01966-JCM-NJK BRIAN WILLIAMS, SR., et al., ORDER 13 14 Respondents. _______________________________/ 15 16 17 18 In this habeas corpus action, the petitioner, Debaron Sanders, was due to file an amended habeas petition by October 12, 2016. See Order entered July 14, 2016 (ECF No. 31). On October 11, 2016, Sanders filed a motion for extension of time (ECF No. 34), requesting 19 a 90-day extension -- extending the deadline to January 10, 2017 -- for his amended petition. 20 Sanders’ counsel states that the extension of time is necessary to investigate this case, meet with the 21 petitioner, and draft an amended petition. Respondents do not oppose the motion for extension of 22 time. See Non-Opposition to Motion for Extension of Time (ECF No. 35). The Court finds that 23 Sanders’ motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not solely for the purpose of delay, 24 and that there is good cause for the extension of time Sanders requests. 25 26 In view of the time that Sanders’ will have had to file an amended petition, the court will not look favorably upon any motion to further extend this deadline. 1 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for extension of time (ECF No 2 34) is GRANTED. Petitioner will have until and including January 10, 2017, to file an amended 3 petition for writ of habeas corpus. In all other respects, the schedule for further proceedings set forth 4 in the order entered July 14, 2016 (ECF No. 31) will remain in effect. 5 6 October day of October, 2016.
