UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
DWIGHT NEVIN, et al.,
In this habeas corpus action, brought by Nevada prisoner Dustin Anderson, the Court
appointed counsel for Anderson on February 5, 2016, counsel appeared for Anderson on March 9,
2016, and, after a 120-day extension of time (from May 9, 2016), Anderson was due to file his first
amended habeas petition by September 6, 2016. See Orders entered February 8, 2016 (ECF Nos. 7
and 8); Notice of Appearance, filed March 9, 2016 (ECF No. 9); Order entered May 12, 2016 (ECF
On September 6, 2016, Anderson filed a motion for extension of time (ECF No. 12),
requesting a further 45-day extension of time, to October 21, 2016, to file his first amended petition.
Anderson’s counsel represented that the extension of time was necessary so that she could meet with
Anderson a second time before filing his amended petition. Respondents did not oppose the motion
for extension of time.
On October 21, 2016, Anderson filed his amended petition for writ of habeas corpus (ECF
The court finds that Anderson’s motion for a second extension of time was made in good
faith and not solely for the purpose of delay, and that there is good cause for the requested extension
of time. The court will grant the extension of time requested by Anderson, and will treat his
amended petition as timely filed.
With his amended petition, Anderson filed several exhibits (ECF Nos. 14, 15), and a motion
for waiver of LR IA 10-3(e), which concerns the form of the cover sheets to be included with
exhibits (ECF No. 16). The court finds that, in light of the number of exhibits filed, and the limited
resources of the Federal Public Defender, there is good cause for the waiver requested by Anderson.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that petitioner’s Motion for an Extension of Time (ECF
No. 12) is GRANTED. Petitioner’s amended habeas petition, filed October 21, 2016 (ECF No. 13)
shall be treated as timely filed.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, in all other respects, the schedule for further
proceedings set forth in the order entered May 12, 2016 (ECF No. 11) shall remain in effect.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for waiver of LR IA 10-3(e) (ECF
No. 16) is GRANTED. LR 1A 10-3(e) is waived for purposes of the exhibits filed by all parties in
DATED this 18th day of January, 2017.
