ITEM 10 | EXTENSIONS OF TIME TO FILE A BRIEF/APPENDIX
If you need an extension of time in which to file your brief or appendix, you may request an extension in one of two ways:
► The Clerk’s Office has the authority to grant one extension of 14 days in length via telephone. You may contact the case administrator assigned to your case and request an extension of up to 14 days. If granted, you will need to send a letter confirming the extension. This letter may be filed along with the brief or appendix.
► If you need more than 14 days, you must file a motion with the Clerk’s Office. The motion must contain a statement of when the brief or appendix was originally due to be filed, and why the brief or appendix cannot be filed on time.
► The motion should contain a statement advising whether or not you have consent of opposing counsel, if possible.
► The motion for extension should be filed at least 7 days before the due date of the brief or appendix. 11th Cir. R. 31-2(c).
