Carson Street Carson City, NV 89701-4717 Tel: (775) 684-1150 E-mail: Attorneys for Defendants Romeo Aranas, John Borrowman and Michael Minev 8 9 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 10 DISTRICT OF NEVADA 11 SCOTT CASTEEL, Case No. 3:20-cv-00381-GMN-CLB Plaintiff, 12 MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME (ECF NO. 85) 13 vs. 14 ROMEO ARANAS, et al., 15 Defendants. 16 Defendants, Romeo Aranas, John Borrowman and Michael Minev, by and through counsel, 17 Aaron D. Ford, Attorney General of the State of Nevada, and Douglas R. Rands, Senior Deputy 18 Attorney General, hereby move this Court for an extension of time to respond to Plaintiff’s Motion 19 for extension of time to file a motion to amend. (ECF No. 79). This Court Ordered, by ECF No. 85, 20 Defendants Counsel to respond to the Motion by July 20, 2021. Counsel is scheduled to be out of 21 state that week on a pre-planned family vacation. Therefore, the Defendants respectfully request the 22 Court extend the deadline by 10 days, to July 30, 2021. This request is made and based on the 23 attached points and authorities, the papers and pleadings on file herein, and such other and further 24 information as this Court may deem appropriate. 25 MEMORANDUM OF POINTS AND AUTHORITIES 26 Courts have inherent powers to control their dockets, see Ready Transp., Inc. v. AAR Mfg, 27 Inc., 627 F.3d 402, 404 (citations omitted), and to “achieve the orderly and expeditious disposition 28 of cases.” Chambers v. NASCO, Inc., 501 U.S. 32, 43 (1991) “Such power is indispensable to the 1 1 court’s ability to enforce its orders, manage its docket, and regulate insubordinate [] conduct. Id. 2 (citing Mazzeo v. Gibbons, No. 2:08–cv01387–RLH–PAL, 2010 WL 3910072, at *2 (D.Nev.2010)). 3 LR IA 6-1 discusses requests for continuances. The rule states: 4 5 (a) A motion or stipulation to extend time must state the reasons for the extension requested and must inform the court of all previous extensions of the subject deadline the court granted. (Examples: “This is the first stipulation for extension of time to file motions.” “This is the third motion to extend time to take discovery.”) 6 7 This is the first request, and is requested for good cause. Counsel is currently scheduled to 8 be out of state on a pre-planned family vacation during the week of July 19, 2021. Therefore, it will 9 be difficult to research and file the response in this timeframe. There will be no prejudice to Plaintiff 10 because if his motion is granted, deadlines for discovery and motion practice will need to be 11 revisited. 12 13 14 15 16 17 Therefore, it is requested that the Defendant have an additional 10 days to file their response to Plaintiff’s motion, which would then be due on July 30, 2021.
