IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 21, 2006
DAVID SANDERS, PLAINTIFF,
U-HAUL INTERNATIONAL INC., U-HAUL OF ARIZONA, AND AMERCO, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
Pending before the Court is Sanders' March 17, 2006, pro se motion for extension of time to respond to a motion to dismiss (Doc. 14). Sanders requests an additional ten days to respond so that new counsel can enter an appearance.*fn1 This motion to dismiss has been pending since October 26, 2005 (Doc. 8). Previously, the Court has allowed Sanders ample time and opportunities to respond to the motion and to allow new counsel to enter an appearance (Docs. 7, 11, & 13). The Court also advised Sanders that the failure to respond may result in the motion to be dismiss being granted. Sanders has neither responded or had new counsel enter an appearance. While the Court realizes that Sanders is proceeding pro se, the Court cannot allow this litigation to continue to linger.*fn2 Therefore, further motions for extensions of time will not be favored. The Court GRANTS Sanders' motion for extension of time to respond (Doc. 14). The Court ALLOWS Sanders up to and including March 31, 2006 to respond to the motion to dismiss. The failure to respond may result in the motion being granted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
