Case 3:20-cv-00207-MMD-CLB Document 25 Filed 10/14/20 Page 1 of 1 1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 4 5 HEATH FULKERSON, 6 7 8 Case No. 3:20-CV-00207-MMD-CLB Plaintiff, ORDER v. COSTCO WHOLESALE CORPORATION, 9 Defendant. 10 11 Plaintiff filed a motion for an unspecified extension of time to answer discovery 12 propounded by defendant (ECF No. 23). Defendant filed an opposition (ECF No. 24). No 13 reply was filed. 14 Plaintiff’s motion does not comport with the Local Rules in general, and more 15 specifically LR IA 6-1 (extensions of time) and LR 26-3 (discovery extensions). Most 16 importantly, Plaintiff fails to include a certification pursuant to LR 26-6(c) which requires 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 that he certify that he attempted to meet and confer with defense counsel in an effort to resolve this issue without court involvement. However, because Plaintiff is appearing pro se, the court will provide Plaintiff some leniency with this particular request. In the future, however, Plaintiff’s requests must comport with the rules and requirements of the court regardless of his pro se status. Therefore, Plaintiff’s motion for an extension of time (ECF No. 23) is GRANTED. Plaintiff shall respond to defendant’s discovery requests no later than October 30, 2020. IT IS SO ORDERED.
