1 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 2 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 3 4 Manuel Melendez, 2:15-cv-02076-JAD-VCF 5 Petitioner 6 v. 7 Dwight Neven, et al., Order Granting Motion for Extension of Time [ECF No. 12] 8 Respondents 9 10 Respondents request a 90-day extension of time to respond to Manuel Melendez’s § 2254 11 petition. Respondents’ counsel states that the extension is necessary because of her existing caseload 12 demands. I find that respondents’ motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not solely 13 for purposes of delay, so I grant the request. However, because of the length of the extension and 14 because this is the third extension that respondents have sought, no further extensions to file the 15 response will be given absent extraordinary circumstances. 16 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that respondents’ motion for extension of time 17 [ECF No 12] is GRANTED. Respondents’ response to Melendez’s petition is due by April 23, 18 2017. 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 Dated this 25th day of January, 2017. _________________________________ ______________________ _ __________ __ _ Jennifer A.
