Presently before the Court is Defendant Guthrie Clinic, Ltd.'s Motion to Dismiss for Lack of Subject Matter Jurisdiction Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12(b)(1) (Doc. 13). Local Rule of Court 7.6 requires that "[a]ny party opposing any motion, other than a motion for summary judgment, shall file a brief in opposition within fourteen (14) days after service of the movant's brief.... Any party who fails to comply with this rule shall be deemed not to oppose such a motion." Pursuant to Local Rule of Court 7.6 and Rule 6(d) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Plaintiff's briefs in opposition were all due, at the latest, on February 14, 2014.
Although the deadline for filing an opposing brief has passed, Plaintiff has not filed a brief in opposition to the motion to dismiss. The Court will grant additional time for Plaintiff to respond to the motion. Plaintiff shall file a brief in opposition to the motion within fourteen (14) days.
