MGO 18-10 Notice of filing extensions due to earthquake

Thursday, December 6, 2018

MISCELLANEOUS GENERAL ORDER NO. 18-10

IT IS HEREBY ORDERED THAT:

As a result of the Court closure and slowdown, as well as the disruption for many lawyers, litigants, and
witnesses caused by the earthquake, there will be a general extension of some (but not all) normal filing deadlines in
the U.S. District Court for the District of Alaska for cases filed in the Anchorage court.

For any non-expedited filing that was or is due from 30 November through 7 December 2018, the new
deadline is 11 December 2018. Any responsive pleading is due the normal time period from 11 December 2018. The
parties need not file a motion or stipulation for these extensions.

However, if a response to an expedited filing was or is due from 30 November through 7 December 2018,
then the responding party should seek relief from the assigned judge.

This general extension does not apply to deadlines for filings or hearings in Fairbanks or Juneau. Any request
for an extension in a filing or hearing deadline in these cases must be presented to the assigned judge.
