UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 30, 2013
R. FIELDS, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Barbara A. McAuliffe United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION REQUESTING COURT ORDER TO ALLOW PLAINTIFF TO FILE EXTENSIONS OF TIME, REPLIES OR OBJECTIONS WITHOUT PREJUDICE (ECF No. 146) ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR JUDICIAL NOTICE AS MOOT (ECF No. 147)
Plaintiff Donald Glass ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 25, 2013, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting a court order to allow him to file extensions of time to file replies or objections because he is not receiving oppositions or court orders in a timely manner. (ECF No. 146.) Plaintiff filed a corresponding request for judicial notice of certain court filings pursuant to Fed. R. Evid. 201.
Plaintiff does not identify a particular matter for which an extension is sought. Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 6; Local Rule 144. The Court will not permit an open extension of time for Plaintiff to submit his replies, objections or requests for extensions. However, Plaintiff may request a specific, necessary extension from the Court as soon as the need for such an extension becomes apparent. Local Rule 144(d). Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion requesting a court order to allow him to file extensions of time to file replies or objections is DENIED without prejudice.
As the Court is denying Plaintiff's motion without prejudice, his corresponding request for judicial notice is DENIED AS MOOT.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
