CAFC Limits Briefing Extensions to 60 Days

Federal Circuit Rule 27(h)(4) has been revised effective December 17, 2004, to authorize the clerk to act on consented to or unopposed motions to extend for not more than 60 days the time for filing a principal brief. This is in addition to the clerk's delegated authority to extend for not more than 30 days the time for taking any other action permitted by the rules or an order of the court. A sentence has also been added to the Practice Note following the rule stating no further extensions should be anticipated.
