thank you for your help in the previous question concerning "excusable neglect"..although i have seen that rule 60 b us used, then in other cases i see it listed as rule 6 B...are they interchangeable?
Hello and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you.

Rule 6 can be used when a time is set by law. That is different than time set by court order. For example, Rule 6 can be used to extend the time to file an Answer. Rule 60 is used regarding court orders. If I recall correctly, your extension is based on a court order ... the extension of the discovery deadline?

it is to extend the deadlines to amend pleadings, and identify expert i assume 60b is the right one then...thank you...

Hi again.

Yes, I think Rule 60 works there, not Rule 6.

Good luck!
