Geer v. Colvin
ORDER granting 24 Motion to Extend Time. Motion for reversal and/or remand due by 2/16/2017. Signed by Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe on 1/18/17. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - JM)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
JAMIA M. GEER,
CAROLYN W. COLVIN,
COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
Case No. 2:16-cv-00542-GMN-NJK
(Docket No. 24)
Pending before the Court is Plaintiff’s motion to extend the deadline to file her motion for
remand or reversal. Docket No. 24. Though Plaintiff labels it as a motion to extend the December
15, 2016 deadline, see id. at 1, the Court construes it as a motion to extend the January 17, 2017
deadline. The instant motion is identical to Plaintiff’s motion at Docket No. 22. See Docket No. 24
at 2-3 (referencing December 15, 2016 deadline and providing the same reasons for request to those
mentioned in motion at Docket No. 22). Nonetheless, the Court understands that Plaintiff’s counsel
is new to the case and needs sufficient time to prepare.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion, Docket No. 24, is hereby GRANTED. The deadline for
Plaintiff to file any motions for reversal and/or remand is hereby EXTENDED to February 16, 2017.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: January 18, 2017
NANCY J. KOPPE
United States Magistrate Judge
