The motion for extension of time was granted in part.

The Clerk of the Tenth Circuit on its own authority (which is customary) granted a 30-day extension to October 7 for the Appellant Opening Brief.

Lindsey’s opening brief will be filed September 7, as originally ordered, and Oscar’s will follow roughly 30 days later, barring any further extensions.

A 2nd motion for extension will go to a Motions Panel at the Tenth should it be sought.

The arguments are known, and both briefs are being prepared, but the problem is finding enough time to read all the requisite transcripts, documents and case law.

It is extremely difficult to defend while incarcerated!  It borders on an abuse of due process and leads one to believe the process is ‘rigged’ against defendants.
