1 2 3 4 5 6 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF WASHINGTON AT SEATTLE 7 8 9 CARREA CHRISTOPHER, Plaintiff, 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 Case No. C17-738RSL v. FORD MOTOR COMPANY, INC., et al., ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO SERVE Defendants. This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff’s “Application for Extension of Time to Serve and Request for Court Order to Have United States Marshal to Serve.” Dkt. # 7. The Court will exercise its discretion to extend time: plaintiff seeks a relatively short extension, as he indicates that service has already been mailed to the defendants, see Dkt. # 7-1; there is little chance of any real prejudice caused by the delay in service; this litigation was filed just over two months ago; plaintiff’s tardiness will have a negligible impact on the case schedule; and refusing to grant the extension would potentially preclude plaintiff’s claim and deprive the Court of the opportunity to adjudicate this dispute on its merits. 22 23 24 For all of the foregoing reasons, plaintiff’s motion is GRANTED. Plaintiff shall have an additional 30 days to effect service of process upon defendants. 25 26 27 28 ORDER GRANTING MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME TO SERVE - 1 1 DATED this 25th day of July, 2017. 2 A 3 Robert S.
