Affinity Network, Inc. v. Inteliquent, Inc.
ORDER Granting in part and Denying in part 5 Motion to Extend Time to Respond to Complaint. The Court finds good cause for a 10-day extension. NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED. Signed by Magistrate Judge Nancy J. Koppe on 5/25/17. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - ADR)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
AFFINITY NETWORK, INC.,
Case No. 2:17-cv-01397-JCM-NJK
(Docket No. 5)
This case is at its inception. Counsel have presented to the Court a dispute that should not exist.
In particular, Defendant currently seeks a 14-day extension to the deadline to respond to the complaint
(despite previously seeking from opposing counsel agreement to a 10-day extension) and Plaintiff
refuses to agree to more than a 7-day extension. See Docket Nos. 5, 7. The briefing is filled with
counter-accusations of unreasonable behavior, and unsubtle accusations of deception and bad faith.
Counsel are expected to zealously advocate for their clients, but the Court will not allow this case to
be litigated in contravention of the rules requiring civility and professionalism. See, e.g., Local
Rule 1-1(c). Counsel are hereby WARNED that they shall adhere to the requirements of civility and
professionalism moving forward.
Turning to the merits of the motion, the Court finds good cause for a 10-day extension. The
motion is therefore GRANTED in part and DENIED in part.
NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: May 25, 2017
