TED HANF, et al., DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO EXTEND THE DEADLINE TO FILE THE STIPULATION AND ORDER FOR DISMISSAL WITH PREJUDICE (FIRST REQUEST) Defendants. 15 16 17 Defendants, by and through counsel, Aaron D. Ford, Attorney General of the State 18 of Nevada, and Kayla D. Dorame, Deputy Attorney General, move to extend the deadline 19 to file the Stipulation and Order for Dismissal with Prejudice in this matter by 7 days. 20 William Lewis is currently in the lawful custody of the Nevada Department of 21 Corrections (NDOC) and is housed at Warm Springs Correctional Center (WSCC). On 22 March 24, 2021, Lewis and Defendants participated in an Early Mediation Conference 23 where a settlement was reached. 24 Stipulation and Order for Dismissal with Prejudice was scheduled for April 22, 2021. Id. 25 26 27 28 ECF No. 23. The original deadline to file the Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b)(1) governs enlargements of time and provides as follows: When an act may or must be done within a specified time, the court may, for good cause, extend the time: (A) with or without motion or notice if the court acts, or if a request is made, before 1 Case 3:19-cv-00625-GMN-CLB Document 27 Filed 04/22/21 Page 2 of 3 1 2 the original time or its extension expires; or (B) on motion made after the time has expired if the party failed to act because of excusable neglect. 3 Defense counsel requests a seven (7) day extension to obtain the necessary 4 signatures from the proper parties. Defense counsel never received the signed settlement 5 agreement or stipulation and order from Lewis, so Defense counsel had to reach out to 6 Lewis’ caseworker to obtain those documents signed. Defense counsel only obtained those 7 documents in the afternoon of April 22, 2021 and still needs a signature from their client. 8 Good cause exists to extend time to file the Stipulation and Order for Dismissal 9 because Defense counsel had to reach out to various individuals to obtain those 10 documents and needs only a short amount time to obtain an additional signature. 11 Defense counsel requests until April 29, 2021 to file the stipulation and order. 12 13 14 15 DATED this 22nd day of April, 2021.
