UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Dwight Neven, et al.,
Order Granting Motion for Extension
[ECF No. 12]
Respondents request a 90-day extension of time to respond to Manuel Melendez’s § 2254
petition. Respondents’ counsel states that the extension is necessary because of her existing caseload
demands. I find that respondents’ motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not solely
for purposes of delay, so I grant the request. However, because of the length of the extension and
because this is the third extension that respondents have sought, no further extensions to file the
response will be given absent extraordinary circumstances.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that respondents’ motion for extension of time
[ECF No 12] is GRANTED. Respondents’ response to Melendez’s petition is due by April 23,
Dated this 25th day of January, 2017.
