Wasilla, AK asked in Civil Litigation for Alaska

Q: Will the response be due on the 31st or will the stay supersede it even if the judge hasn't ordered the stay by Oct. 31?

I have a summary judgment response due on the 31st, but am putting in a motion for a SCRA stay in on the 25th. I need to know if I have to prepare to file the response or if the SCRA trumps it. Also is there a way to request more time to prepare for the response. Im pro se and the summary judgment is huge!

A: If the SCRA applies, it probably would indeed trump the MSJ. If I were you, I would include in the SCRA response a statement that you have more to say about the MSJ, so if the SCRA motion is denied you would request more time to respond to the MSJ.
