See Order entered October 2, 2017 18 (ECF No. 8) (90 days for amended petition). 19 On January 2, 2018, Guzman filed a motion for an extension of time (ECF No. 11), 20 requesting a 90-day extension of time, to April 2, 2018, for his amended petition. This would be the 21 first extension of this deadline. Petitioner’s counsel states that the extension of time is necessary 22 because of his obligations in other cases, and because of the nature of this case. Respondents do not 23 oppose the motion for extension of time. The court finds that petitioner’s motion for extension of 24 time is made in good faith and not solely for the purpose of delay, and that there is good cause for the 25 extension of time requested. 26 1 The court will grant the motion for extension of time. However, in light of the amount of 2 time Guzman will have had to file an amended petition (about six months), the Court will not look 3 favorably upon any motion to further extend this deadline. 4 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that petitioner’s Motion for Extension of Time (ECF 5 No. 11) is GRANTED. Petitioner will have until April 2, 2018, to file an amended petition for writ 6 of habeas corpus. In all other respects, the schedule for further proceedings set forth in the order 7 entered October 2, 2017 (ECF No. 8) will remain in effect. 8 Dated this 2nd day of January, 2018. 9 10 11 UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 2
