Summary Judgment may be granted where there are no issues of fact. I cannot say if it was error on the part of the Judge to grant Summary Judgment because I do not know what the pleadings allege.
If you are asking if the Judge committed an error of law or abused his discretion when granting an extension of time to file briefs - the Judge did not commit an error of law, nor did he abuse his discretion in granting an extension of time.
