Motions for Extension of Time

For any motion seeking an extension of time to file pleadings or comply with other time requirements, the parties must include in the motion a statement that:  (1) the movant has sought the other side’s agreement to the extension; and (2) specifies the result of that request.

In non-consent cases, counsel should consider the nature of the referral to the magistrate judge. In some cases, the district court will affirmatively note that the magistrate judge may (or may not) extend dates set by the district court.  If the district court has affirmatively stated that Judge Weisman does not have the authority to extend discovery dates, counsel should file motions for extensions of time with the district court.  Conversely, if the dates at issue were set by Judge Weisman, filing a motion for an extension of time with this Court is appropriate.
