Sipple v. Zions Bancorporation, N.A.
ORDER Denying 8 STIPULATION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME (Second Request) for Defendant Zions Bancorporation to Respond to the Complaint. Signed by Judge Gloria M. Navarro on 6/4/2021. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - DRS)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
LINDA LEE SIPPLE,
Case No. 2:21-cv-00904-GMN-NJK
[Docket No. 8]
ZIONS BANCORPORATION, N.A.,
Pending before the Court is a stipulation for extension of time for Defendant to respond to
11 Plaintiff’s complaint. Docket No. 8. The parties ask the Court to permit Defendant to file a
12 response to Plaintiff’s complaint twenty-one days after the Court issues a ruling on a motion to
13 remand that Plaintiff may or may not file. Id. at 2. The parties submit that granting the instant
14 request will conserve party and judicial resources. Id.
Whether Plaintiff will file a motion to remand is uncertain, as the parties merely submit
16 that Plaintiff “may seek to remand this matter.” Id. Further, the parties fail to explain how granting
17 the instant stipulation, which would effectively stay discovery proceedings whether or not Plaintiff
18 files a motion to remand, would conserve party resources. “[E]ven if the motion to remand is
19 granted, ‘that will not render any discovery conducted moot or otherwise result in a waste of the
20 parties’ resources.’” Anoruo v. Valley Health Sys., 2018 WL 1785866, at *3 (D. Nev. Apr. 13,
21 2018) (quoting Cooks-Putnam v. Trump Las Vegas Corp., 2015 U.S. Dist. Lexis 115606, at *3 (D.
22 Nev. Aug. 31, 2015)); see also Turner Broad. Sys., Inc. v. Tracinda Corp., 175 F.R.D. 554, 556
23 (D. Nev. 1997) (stating discovery should proceed absent a “strong showing” to the contrary).
Accordingly, the parties’ stipulation, Docket No. 8, is hereby DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
