07/31/2013 RE#8: Counsel for the appellee was previously allowed an enlargement of time to 5/8/13 for the filing of appellee's brief. No brief was filed by that date, nor was a motion for further enlargement filed. On 7/19/13, over sixty days later, counsel for the appellee presented a brief along with a motion to enlarge to that date. Although describing several reasons why the brief was delayed, counsel did not explain why the motion to enlarge had not been filed earlier. Noting that this is not the favored approach in such matters, the motion to enlarge is allowed nunc pro tunc and the appellee's brief may be filed. (Rapoza, C.J.). *Notice.
