Update on Hunt lawsuit: parties stipulate to extend time for filing of response to First Amended Complaint

June 19, 2017

The parties in the Mark Hunt v. UFC/White/Lesnar case have stipulated to allow the defendants an extension to file a responsive pleading to Hunt’s First Amended Complaint.

Hunt filed the First Amended Complaint on June 1, 2017.  According to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, a party has 20 days from the filing of the complaint to respond.  The stipulation extends the response date to June 26, 2017.

Payout Perspective:

This is not huge news but gives defendants and extra weekend to file an Answer, Counterclaims or another Motion to Dismiss.  Since it gives defendants an extra weekend to prepare a response, I would suppose a Motion to Dismiss might be filed once again, or at least a motion to dismiss the RICO claims.  We will see.

Got something to say?
