Enlargements of Time at the United Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit

by | Oct 24, 2019

Enlargements of time to file appendices and briefs at the Second Circuit must be requested by motion with a supporting affidavit demonstrating good cause. All motions made to the Second Circuit must be accompanied by a T-1080 Form (Motion Information Statement).
The Court prefers that these motions be made two weeks in advance for civil cases and at least seven days for advance in criminal cases.

Since the filing deadlines are set up to 91 days in advance, the Court will generally grant one 30-day enlargement of time however, it is reluctant to grant a second extension. To receive a second enlargement of time there must exist “extraordinary circumstances” such as a death or illness. The Court requires that a motion to enlarge be made as soon as practicable after said “extraordinary circumstance” arises.
