MICHAEL J. ASTRUE, COMMISSIONER OF SOCIAL SECURITY,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER GRANTING REQUEST FOR
EXTENSION OF TIME
On August 12, 2011, the parties filed a stipulated request that Plaintiff be granted an extension of time until September 16, 2011, to file an opening brief. (Doc. 16.) The Court GRANTS the parties' request.
However, although Plaintiff states that this is her first request for an extension of time (Doc. 15:1), Plaintiff in fact requested and was granted a previous extension of time in which to prepare her confidential letter. (Docs. 13, 14.) Accordingly, absent a showing of good cause, Plaintiff will not be granted any additional extensions in this action. The schedule is modified as provided below.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall file an opening brief on or before September 16, 2011;
2. The Commissioner shall file a responsive brief on or before October 19, 2011; and
3. Plaintiff may file a reply brief on or before November 7, 2011.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
