(a)   Initial Extensions

In every adversary proceeding pending in this Court in which a party wishes to obtain an initial extension of time not exceeding twenty-eight (28) days within which to file a responsive pleading or a response to a written request for discovery or request for admission, or response to a motion, the party shall contact counsel for the opposing party, or if the opposing party is not represented by counsel, the opposing party, and solicit that person’s agreement to the extension. In the event that person does not object to the extension or cannot with due diligence be reached, the party requesting the extension shall file a notice with the Court reciting the lack of objection to the extension or the fact that the person could not with due diligence be reached. The notice shall state the original due date and the date to which the time is extended. No further filings with the Court nor action by the Court shall be required for the extension.

(b)   Other Extensions

Any other request for an extension of time, unless made in open Court or at a telephonic pretrial conference, shall be made by written motion.
