CASE NO. 2:24-cv-00663-BAT ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO MODIFY BRIEFING SCHEDULE SEATTLE SCHOOL DISTRICT, Defendant. On June 18, 2024, Defendant moved to modify the Court’s briefing schedule to provide the parties sufficient time to fully address the merits of appeal herein. Dkt. 8. Defendant also requests the Court to expand the briefing page limits because the matter is complex, and to require Plaintiff to file an opening brief because Plaintiff’s complaint neither identifies the specific issues to be reviewed, or the grounds upon which Plaintiffs contend the ALJ erred. Id. Plaintiff has not responded to Defendant’s motion which was noted for July 2, 2024, and the matter is thus ready for the Court’s review. The Court finds Defendant has made a good cause showing to modify the original scheduling order, Dkt. 7, and ORDERS: 1. Defendant’s motion to modify the briefing schedule, Dkt. 7, is GRANTED. 2. Plaintiff shall file an opening brief or motion due 45 days after entry of this order, ORDER GRANTING MOTION TO MODIFY BRIEFING SCHEDULE - 1 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 not to exceed 48 pages. 3.
