UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
KENNETH A. HENDREN,
BRIAN E. WILLIAMS, et al.,
The order entered on November 9, 2016 (ECF No. 19), regarding respondents’ filing of
exhibits and provision of a courtesy copy of their exhibits to the Court, will be vacated, and this
order entered in its place.
In this habeas corpus action, on November 3, 2016, the respondents filed an answer (ECF
No. 14), along with several exhibits (ECF Nos. 15, 16, 17). The respondents also filed a motion for
waiver of certain local rules (ECF No. 18).
In their motion, respondents first request a waiver, for purposes of this case, of Local Rule
IA 10-3(e), which requires, with respect to the filing of exhibits, that the cover sheet for each exhibit
must include a descriptor of the exhibit. The court finds that, in this habeas corpus action, in light of
the number of exhibits respondents have filed, there is good cause to waive the requirement that the
cover sheet for each exhibit include a descriptor of the exhibit. That portion of respondents’ motion
will be granted. For purposes of this habeas corpus action, the court waives the requirement in
Local Rule IA 10-3(e) that the cover sheet for each filed exhibit must include a descriptor of the
Additionally, respondents request a waiver of Local Rule IA 10-3(I), which concerns
exhibits to documents filed or submitted to the court in paper form. Respondents’ answer, and the
exhibits in support of it, have been filed in electronic form; therefore, it appears that this local rule
does not apply. This part of respondents’ motion is unnecessary and will be denied.
However, pursuant to LR IC 2-2(g), because respondents’ exhibits exceed 50 pages,
respondents are to submit paper copies of those exhibits to the court; respondents should submit
those copies of their exhibits to the attention of the court’s staff attorneys, at the office of the Clerk
of the Court, at the court’s Reno location.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that respondents’ Motion for Waiver of Compliance with
LR IA 10-3 (ECF No. 18) is GRANTED IN PART AND DENIED IN PART, as described above.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the order entered November 9, 2016 (ECF No. 19) is
VACATED. The Clerk of the Court shall strike that order from the record.
Dated this 22nd day of December, 2016.
