ORDER TO SHOW CAUSE
ALABAMA HOUSING FINANCE
THIS MATTER comes before the Court on Defendant’s Motion for Additional Time.
(Dkt. No. 12.) While Defendant seeks additional time to respond to Plaintiff’s Motion for a
Temporary Restraining Order, it has not adequately alleged that service was improper or that it
did not have an opportunity to timely respond. Plaintiff has complied with the requirements set
forth in Washington’s Deeds of Trust Act, RCW 61.24.130(2) and Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(h). Plaintiff
served trustee for Defendant North Cascade Trustee Service (NCTS) on October 27, 2017. (Dkt.
Nos. 8, 14.) Plaintiff also delivered copies of the pleadings to the Servicing Administrator for
Defendant in Montgomery, Alabama on October 27, 2017 (Dkt. No. 8) and to an individual

apparently authorized to accept service on October 31, 2017 (Dkt. No. 14-3). Local Rule
65(b)(1) is inapplicable because Plaintiffs motion was not issued without notice. LCR 65(b)(1).
Defendant has not adequately explained why it was unable to comply with the Court’s Minute
Order of October 30, 2017. (Dkt. No. 10.)
Defendant is hereby ORDERED TO SHOW CAUSE why it should be granted additional
time to respond to Plaintiff’s Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order in a brief of no more
than five (5) pages due November 17, 2017 with Plaintiff’s response due November 20, 2017.
There will be no foreclosure while this Motion is pending.
The clerk is ordered to provide copies of this order to all counsel.
Dated November 14, 2017.
