UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA SAN JOSE DIVISION
August 23, 2011
BERRY LYNN ADAMS,
DANIEL L. KRAFT, A STATE OF CALIFORNIA PARK RANGER, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Lucy H. Koh United States District Judge
ORDER CONTINUING HEARING
DATE AND EXTENDING BRIEFING SCHEDULE
(re: docket #129)
On August 11, 2011, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment, which is set for 17 hearing on Thursday, September 15, 2011. See Dkt. #128. Pursuant to the Court's Local Rules, 18 Plaintiff's opposition is due by August 25, 2011, and Defendant's reply is due by September 1, 19 2011. However, on August 22, 2011, counsel for Plaintiff filed a motion requesting an order 20 extending the time to file Plaintiff's opposition from August 25, 2011 to September 15, 2011. See 21 Dkt. #129. Counsel for Plaintiff represents that good cause exists because of an unforeseen family 22 crisis.
The Court is hesitant to grant extensions, especially where the extension will force a 24 modification of a hearing date. Here, however, the Court finds that good cause exists for granting 25 Plaintiff counsel's request.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's opposition to Defendants' motion for summary judgment is now 27 due by September 15, 2011, and Defendants' reply is now due by September 29, 2011. The 28 hearing on Defendants' motion is continued to Thursday, October 20, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. The other 2 case deadlines remain as set. Further requests for extensions are strongly disfavored. 3
IT IS SO ORDERED.
