IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 6, 2006
CARL WILSON, PLAINTIFF,
T.J. COLLINS AND JOE STEINHAUER, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Herndon, District Judge
The Magistrate Judge assigned to this matter issued a Report and Recommendation ("R&R") (Doc. 45), recommending the Court grant Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment (Doc. 32). Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and S.D. Ill. L.R. 73.1(b), a party to the action is allowed to file objections to the R&R within ten days of service. Therefore, in this instance, the parties had until June 28, 2006 to file written objections.
On June 28, 2006, Plaintiff filed a Motion for Extension of Time (Doc. 46), requesting an additional 21 days to file written objections to the R&R. Plaintiff's counsel states the fact that Plaintiff is incarcerated and the attorney's own busy schedule necessitate seeking the extension of time.
The Court GRANTS Plaintiff's Motion (Doc. 46). Accordingly, Plaintiff is allowed until July 27, 2006, to file written objections to the R&R. The Court does not anticipate granting a further extension of time unless a more sufficient reason is given.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
David Rherndon United States District Judge
