Mwanza v. Green et al
ORDER denying 48 Motion for Reconsideration of order granting plaintiff's motion for extension of time. Signed by Magistrate Judge Valerie P. Cooke on 1/26/2017. (Copies have been distributed pursuant to the NEF - WJ)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
C/O GREEN, et al.,
MINUTES OF THE COURT
January 26, 2017
THE HONORABLE VALERIE P. COOKE, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
REPORTER: NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF(S): NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR DEFENDANT(S): NONE APPEARING
MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS:
Defense counsel was granted a lengthy extension of time of thirty additional days to file a
dispositive motion (ECF No. 39) because defense counsel was on a trip out of the country (ECF
No. 38). Despite being granted that generous extension of time, defendants have filed a motion
for reconsideration of the court’s order (ECF No. 46) granting plaintiff an eighteen-day extension
of time to file an opposition (ECF No. 48). Defendants’ motion for reconsideration of order
granting plaintiff’s motion for extension of time (ECF No. 48) is DENIED.
This court prefers to resolve cases on their merits and routinely grants extensions of time
without a briefing cycle in order to effectively manage its docket. The court will afford an
incarcerated pro se plaintiff every reasonable opportunity to properly oppose a dispositive
motion. The fact that plaintiff may or may not have split time in the infirmary and administrative
segregation and the reason for either is of no consequence to the court. The court declines to
reopen briefing on this inconsequential issue.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DEBRA K. KEMPI, CLERK
