DISTRICT OF NEVADA
VALLIER WILLIAM TOMPKINS,
Case No. 3:16-cv-00444-MMD-WGC
WARDEN BACA, et al.,
In this habeas corpus action, the petitioner, Vallier William Tompkins, represented
by counsel, filed a second amended habeas petition on June 19, 2017 (ECF No. 21).
Respondents filed a motion to dismiss on August 18, 2017 (ECF No. 30). Tompkins filed
an opposition to the motion to dismiss on November 8, 2017 (ECF No. 36).
The scheduling order for this case was entered on September 20, 2016 (ECF No.
13). With respect to motions to dismiss, the scheduling order states:
Briefing of Motion to Dismiss. If respondents file a motion to dismiss,
petitioner shall have sixty (60) days following service of the motion to file
and serve a response to the motion. Respondents will thereafter have thirty
(30) days following service of the response to file and serve a reply.

respondents have until December 8, 2017, to file a reply in support of their motion to

Respondents’ counsel states that she needs the extension of time because she
was out on annual leave from November 6 to 13, 2017, and because she is busy with
other cases. Petitioner does not oppose the motion for extension of time. The Court finds
that the motion for extension of time is made in good faith and not solely for the purpose
It is therefore ordered that respondents’ Motion for Enlargement of Time (ECF No.
37) is granted. Respondents will have until December 15, 2017, to file a reply in support
of their motion to dismiss. In all other respects, the schedule for further proceedings set
forth in the order entered September 20, 2016 (ECF No. 13) will remain in effect.
DATED THIS 16th day of November 2017.
