ORDER - For the reasons contained herein, the Court DENIES Mr. Challman's Verified Application for Entry of Default from Clerk, [dkt. 7 ]. The Court notes that HOVG's request for an extension of time, which is technically a motion, wa s contained in its response to Mr. Challman's Application. [Dkt. 10 at 2.] This practice violates Local Rule 7-1(a), which provides that "[m]otions must be filed separately, but alternative motions may be filed in a single paper if each is named in the title. A motion must not be contained within a brief, response, or reply to a previously filed motion, unless ordered by the court." The Court excuses HOVG's misstep, GRANTS the request for an extension to June 19, 2013, and DIRECTS the Clerk to docket HOVG's Answer to Complaint Seeking Damages for Violation of the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (currently docketed as an exhibit to its response to the Application [dkt. 12]) as HOVG's Answer. However, the Court expects counsel to comply with the Local Rules going forward Signed by Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson on 6/21/2013. (JKS)
