Plaintiff has not clearly articulated why he needs additional time to respond to the court's order, although he states he has medical problems. Nonetheless, good cause appearing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Plaintiff is granted thirty (30) days from the date of service of this order in which to file an amended complaint, pursuant to the court's order of November 18, 2008.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
