Serna v. Social Security Administration
ORDER by Magistrate Judge Gregory J. Fouratt denying 14 Motion to File Excess Pages. (kdj)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW MEXICO
LORYNN D. SERNA,
Civ. No. 16-1176 GJF
CAROLYN W. COLVIN, Acting
Commissioner of the Social Security
ORDER DENYING MOTION TO FILE EXCESS PAGES
THIS MATTER is before the Court on Plaintiff’s “Unopposed Amended Motion for
Excess Pages for Brief in Support of Motion to Remand” (“Motion”) [ECF No. 14]. Having
reviewed the Motion, the Court sees insufficient cause to allow the extension, and finds little to
distinguish this case from any other Social Security appeal pending before the Court. The Court
further observes that the 27-page limit set forth in Local Rule 7.5 governs dispositive motions in
every case, not just Social Security appeals. Given that dispositive motions are normally the
most important motions filed in every case, the Court is reluctant to make an exception for the
minimal reasons set forth here.
Therefore, the Court HEREBY DENIES Plaintiff’s Motion [ECF No. 14].
recognition of the additional time it will take Plaintiff to conform her motion to the Court’s order
and the Local Rule’s limitation, however, the Court sua sponte enlarges the time for Plaintiff to
file her brief until March 13, 2017.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
THE HONORABLE GREGORY J. FOURATT
UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
