SC Administrative Law Court
John Patriot ) Docket No. 07-ALJ-00
vs. ) MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME
Motion for Extension of Time
Pursuant to Admin Law Court Rule Petitioner above hereby moves this court for an
extension of time based upon the following grounds:
- The SCDOR can easily meet deadlines like this because this is all they do. They
have departments full of full-time personnel with no other function. I have to work
for a living so responding to something of this nature, especially since I'm not
an attorney, is daunting and time-consuming and, therefore, difficult for me.
- This case is ready for settlement. District Counsel has not bothered to respond
to my frequent requests for an out of court settlement.
- Petitioner needs more time to review the response filed by the SCDOR.
- Petitioner is a pro se litigant, unschooled in law and unfamiliar with
procedures and needs more time to prepare for trial. The Supreme Court has ruled
that pro se litigants are not held to the same procedural standards as
highly trained attorneys.
