The failure to perform a required act, usually procedural in nature, because of unusual circumstances. The party failing to perform the act is usually given the opportunity by the court to cure his or her neglect. Source: Barron's Dictionary of Legal Terms, Steven H. Gifis, 5th Edition; ©
"In Pioneer, the Supreme Court held that when analyzing a claim of excusable neglect, courts should "tak[e] account of all relevant circumstances surrounding the party's omission," including "the danger of prejudice to the [nonmovant], the length of the delay and its potential impact on judicial proceedings, the reason for the delay, including whether it was within the reasonable control of the movant, and whether the movant acted in good faith."
