Docket No. 11. As the motion acknowledges, however, the 16 governing deadline expired two months ago. Id. at 1. To revive an expired deadline, a party must show 17 both good cause and excusable neglect. See, e.g., Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(b)(1)(B). No such showing has been 18 made. Cf. Rybski v. Home Depot USA, Inc., 2012 U.S. Dist. Lexis 150152, at *5-6 (D. Ariz. Oct. 17, 19 2012) (collecting cases that settlement discussions, standing alone, are not grounds for an extension). 20 Nor are the parties permitted to stipulate to extend a Court deadline without Court approval. Local Rule 21 7-1(b). Nonetheless, given that there is no opposition and as a one-time courtesy, the Court will 22 GRANT the motion in this case. NO FURTHER EXTENSIONS WILL BE GRANTED. 23 24 Absent a request being granted saying otherwise, the scheduling order at Docket No. 8 applies to Defendant Portfolio Recovery Associates. 25 IT IS SO ORDERED. 26 DATED: March 12, 2018 27 28 ______________________________________ NANCY J.
