Briefly: How To Oppose An Extension If You Really Need To

June 21, 2022

Not too long ago, we wrote about briefing extensions in the appellate courts. See Eric Magnuson and Luke Hasskamp, How to get an extension if you really need one, Minnesota Lawyer (May 20, 2019). That article discussed both the procedure and the strategy for getting a briefing extension in state and federal court. But what if you are on the receiving side of an extension request, and your client is adamant that you not agree to it? What arguments can you make — and what arguments should you make — considering how likely they are to succeed?
