MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
HEALTH CARE, et al.,
Presently before the Court is Defendant Carol Gallagher's ("Defendant") second Motion
for Extension of Time to File Answer ("Motion"). It appearing that:
1. The Clerk of the Court previously granted an extension to answer pursuant to L. Civ. R.
6.l(b), extending the time to answer to July 7, 2015. (See ECF No. 27.)
2. In the instant Motion, Defendant is requesting another extension, extending the due date
to September 2, 2015.
3. Federal Rules of Civil Procedure allows the Court to extend the time to answer "for good
cause." Fed. R. Civ. P. 6(b)(l). However, in her Motion, Defendant provides no explanation
why another two-month extension is needed to file an answer. This does not satisfy the "good
cause" requirement of Rule 6. Nonetheless, the Court will allow a 30-day extension; further
extensions will not be granted absent a showing of good cause.
IT IS therefore on this
