1 2 3 4 5 6 7 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 8 9 MARY L. JOHNSON, individually and on behalf of all others similarly situated, 10 Plaintiff, 11 v. CASE NO. C17-541 RSM ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE OVER-LENGTH BRIEF 12 MGM HOLDINGS INC.; METROGOLDWYN-MAYER STUDIOS INC.; 13 TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT LLC; and 14 TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY FOX, INC., DOES 1-10, inclusive, 15 Defendants. 16 17 This matter comes before the Court on Plaintiff Mary L. Johnson’s Motion for Approval to 18 File an Over-length Brief. Dkt. #25. Ms. Johnson’s response to Defendants’ Motion to Dismiss is 19 due on May 15, 2017. Pursuant to local rule, her response cannot exceed twenty-four pages. LCR 20 7(e)(3). Ms. Johnson now requests a four page extension, allowing her brief to be twenty-eight 21 pages in length. In support of this request, Ms. Johnson argues only that “[t]his is a putative class 22 action with potentially national implication in which the Defendants have raised complex threshold 23 issues of state and federal law concerning Plaintiff’s right to maintain this action.” Dkt. #25 at 2. 24 ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE OVERLENGTH BRIEF - 1 1 Motions seeking approval to file an over-length motion or brief are disfavored. LCR 7(f). 2 The Court finds that Ms. Johnson has failed to set forth sufficient grounds for her requested 3 extension. There is nothing particularly unique about a motion to dismiss a putative class action 4 that raises issues of state and federal law, and Ms. Johnson fails to provide the Court with further 5 details supporting her request. 6 Having reviewed the relevant briefing and the remainder of the record, the Court hereby 7 finds and ORDERS that Plaintiff Mary L. Johnson’s Motion for Approval to File an Over-length 8 Brief (Dkt. #25) is DENIED. 9 10 11 12 Dated this 12th day of May 2017. A RICARDO S. MARTINEZ CHIEF UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE OVERLENGTH BRIEF - 1
