Nasby v. McDaniel et al
ORDER granting ECF No. 203 Motion to Extend Time re ECF No. 176 Amended Petition. Reply due by 12/3/2020. Signed by Judge Larry R. Hicks on 10/15/2020. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - LW)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
E.K. MCDANIEL, et al.,
Case No. 3:07-cv-00304-LRH-WGC
This habeas matter is before the Court on Petitioner Brendan Nasby’s unopposed first
Motion for Extension of Time (ECF No. 203).
The Court has repeatedly warned: “Further extensions of time are not likely to be
granted absent compelling circumstances and a strong showing of good cause why the
briefing could not be completed within the extended time allowed despite the exercise of due
diligence. (See ECF Nos. 183, 190, 192, 198.) The Court has further directed both parties to
“prioritize the briefing in this case over later-filed matters.” (Id.)
Nasby now seeks a 45-day extension to file and serve a reply in support of the amended
petition’s remaining grounds. He provides detailed and compelling reasons why additional time
is necessary to complete the reply brief. The extension will therefore be granted. However,
moving forward, the Court’s instruction and warning remain in effect, and requests for lengthy
extensions will not be granted.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED: Nasby’s unopposed first Motion for Enlargement of
Time (ECF No. 203) is GRANTED. Nasby has until December 3, 2020, to file and serve a reply
in support of the remaining grounds of the Amended Petition (ECF No. 176).
DATED this 15th day of October, 2020.
