Case No: 17-00472-RAJ
This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff’s letter requesting additional
extensions of time to respond. Dkt. # 158. In its prior Order, the Court extended
Plaintiff’s deadline to respond to the pending motions to dismiss to February 16, 2018.
Dkt. # 154. On January 25, 2018, Defendants Rushmore Loan Management Services,
ORDER - 1
LLC (“Rushmore”) and U.S. Bank National Association as Legal Title Trustee for
Truman 2013 SC3 Title Trust (“U.S. Bank”) moved the Court for an entry of Final
Judgment. Dkt. # 156. Plaintiff’s response to this motion was due on February 5, 2018.
On February 8—one day before the noting date—Plaintiff responded that she opposed the
motion and sought additional time to fully brief her opposition. Dkt. # 158.
Plaintiff states that she “has many motions to reply to, so many that it would be
impossible for an experienced attorney” to respond. Id. at 3. She reiterates that she has
been seeking help from outside attorneys. Id. However, the Court notes that Plaintiff
filed this lawsuit in March 2017, and has been admonished countless times that it is her
responsibility to prosecute the matter. The Court has extended great leniency toward
Plaintiff but nonetheless has been clear that Plaintiff is responsible for abiding by the
Federal Rules and this Court’s Local Rules.
For these reasons, the Court denies Plaintiff any further extensions of time to
respond. Because she has not filed an adequate response to the pending Motion for Entry
of Final Judgment, the Court GRANTS this motion. Dkt. # 156. The Court directs the
Clerk to enter Judgment for Defendants Rushmore and U.S. Bank.
Dated this 9th day of February, 2018.
The Honorable Richard A. Jones
United States District Judge
