PERMIT FILING OF OPPOSITION
TO MOTION TO DISMISS TODAY
Civil No. 2:11-cv-00288-CW
Judge Clark Waddoups
Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6(b), Plaintiff Incentive Capital, LLC
(“Plaintiff” or “Incentive”), by and through its counsel, respectfully files this Objection to
Defendant Ted Baer’s Notice to Submit and Memorandum in Support of Motion to Permit Filing
of Opposition to Motion to Dismiss Today.
Defendant Baer is correct that Plaintiff requested five (5) days from the filing of the
Answer by the Atwell Defendants to file a response to the above-referenced Motion to Dismiss.
The Court granted this request [Dkt Entry No. 65]. Defendant filed a Motion to Reconsider [Dkt
Entry No. 67]. Plaintiff filed an opposition to the Motion to Reconsider [Dkt Entry No. 71].
Yesterday, August 4, 2011 the Court considered the Motion to Reconsider and reaffirmed its prior ruling granting the extension [Dkt Entry No. 80]. Plaintiff’s counsel has been
out of the State on a family vacation this week and did not see the ruling until this morning, at
which point Plaintiff also saw the Request to Submit.
In retrospect, Plaintiff sees that it could have acted more cautiously and filed its
Opposition Memorandum on August 3, 2011 or even sooner, before the Court issued its Order on
the Motion to Reconsider. Plaintiff may have made a mistake in this regard. Plaintiff’s
Opposition was already prepared and will be filed today. Plaintiff respectfully requests that
since the Court had not yet ruled on the Motion to Reconsider until yesterday, and that Plaintiff’s
counsel was out of State and did not see the ruling until this morning, that the Opposition Motion
be allowed to be filed today.
Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 6 permits an extension of time “on motion made after the
time has expired if the party failed to act because of excusable neglect.” Fed. R. Civ. P.
6(b)(1)(B). Plaintiff respectfully suggests that it failed to act because of excusable neglect and
requests that it be allowed to file its Opposition today, one day after the Court’s ruling.
For the forgoing reasons, Plaintiff requests that the Request to Submit be denied and that
the Opposition to Motion to Dismiss that will be filed today, be considered by the Court.
DATED this 5th day of August, 2011.
