DISTRICT OF NEVADA
CALVIN JOHNSON, et al.,
Case No. 3:17-cv-00515-HDM-CLB
In this habeas corpus action, after a 120-day period following the resolution of
the respondents’ motion to dismiss, a 60-day extension of time, and a 45-day extension
of time, Respondents were due to file an answer by October 7, 2022. See Order
entered February 24, 2022 (ECF No. 74) (resolving motion to dismiss); Order entered
June 27, 2022 (ECF No. 76) (60-day extension); Order entered August 24, 2022 (ECF
No. 78) (45-day extension).
On October 7, 2022, Respondents filed a motion for extension of time (ECF
No. 79), requesting a further 34-day extension of time, to November 10, 2022.
Respondents’ counsel states that the extension of time is necessary because of her
obligations in other cases and because of illness. Respondents’ counsel represents that
Petitioner Marco Guzman, represented by appointed counsel, does not oppose the
motion for extension of time.
The Court finds that Respondents’ motion for extension of time is made in good
faith and not solely for the purpose of delay, and there is good cause for the extension
of time requested. The Court will grant the extension of time as requested. However, in
view of the amount of time that Respondents will have had to file their answer—over
eight months—the Court will not be inclined to further extend this deadline absent
