CAAF limits enlargement periods

Nelson's Right Eye recently informed us that CAAF was considering shrinking the amount of time that counsel can obtain through an enlargement request. Here's the link.

Yesterday, in a "Memorandum for Appellate Counsel" that doesn't seem to have been included in the daily journal, Mr. DeCicco announced the change:

Regarding motions for enlargement of time, appellate counsel are advised that the Court has directed the Clerk of Court to grant no more than 15 days of additional time to file pleadings beyond the time requirements in the Court's Rules unless the moving party makes a showing of extraordinary circumstances warranting a longer period of time.

Additional requests for enlargement of time in the same case will be granted only upon a showing of extraordinary circumstances.

This policy will take effect for motions filed on and after June 1, 2008.
