Can I still submit a letter request for an extension of time to file a brief or is a formal motion required?

You can still submit a letter request for an extension of time. The letter must state the current due date, grounds for the extension and the new proposed due date. Please note, though, that while you may submit your request in the form of a letter, when you docket and file the request on the Event Selection page of CM/ECF Attorney Docketing, you must select the “Motion” Category of Event and the “Motion Filed” event. Please do not select “Correspondence to Court” as your Category of Event; that category is best used for routine or miscellaneous business correspondence with the clerk’s office.
