THE HONORABLE JOHN C. COUGHENOUR 1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 7 8 9 10 11 NORTHWEST ENVIRONMENTAL ADVOCATES, CASE NO. C16-1866-JCC MINUTE ORDER Plaintiff, v. 12 13 14 U.S. DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE, et al., Defendants. 15 16 17 18 The following Minute Order is made by direction of the Court, the Honorable John C. Coughenour, United States District Judge: This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s motion for leave to file a surreply brief 19 (Dkt. No. 37). Plaintiffs’ believe their surreply is necessary to respond to new arguments in 20 Defendants’ reply brief in support of their motion to dismiss (Dkt. No. 35). Pursuant to Local 21 Civil Rule 7(g), a surreply must be “strictly limited to addressing the request to strike. 22 Extraneous argument or a surreply filed for any other reason will not be considered.” The 23 plaintiff failed to move to strike such argument within the time permitted by Local Civil Rule 24 7(g). Plaintiff now seeks leave to file a surreply with extraneous argument. This Court finds that 25 good cause does not exist to grant this motion. 26 Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED.
