1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 4 ROBERT BERMAN, 5 Case No.: 2:21-cv-01359-APG-BNW Petitioner, 6 v. Order Granting Motion for Extension of Time for Reply 7 CALVIN JOHNSON, et al., 8 [ECF No. 69] Respondents. 9 10 In this habeas corpus action, the respondents filed their answer on May 16, 2023. ECF 11 No. 66. Then, after a 62-day initial period and a 119-day extension of time, Petitioner Robert 12 Berman, pro se, was to file his reply to the respondents’ answer by November 13, 2023. See ECF 13 Nos. 8, 68. In the order granting the 119-day extension of time, I stated with emphasis that I will 14 not look favorably upon any motion to further extend this deadline. ECF No. 68. 15 On November 13, 2023, Berman filed a motion for a second extension of time for his 16 reply (ECF No. 69), requesting that the due date be extended by 15 days, to November 28, 2023. 17 Berman, who apparently is no longer in custody, states that he “was given information about 18 certain laws and … just need[s] a little bit more time.” ECF No. 69. 19 I find that Berman’s motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not solely for 20 the purpose of delay, and that there is good cause for the requested extension of time. I will grant 21 his motion for extension of time. 22 23 I will not be inclined to further extend this deadline. 1 I THEREFORE ORDER that Petitioner’s Request for an Extension of Time (ECF No. 2 69) is GRANTED. Petitioner will have until and including November 28, 2023, to file his reply 3 to Respondents’ answer. 4 Dated: November 14, 2023 5 ________________________________ ANDREW P. GORDON UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 2
