GOVERNMENT'S MOTION FOR EXTENSION OF TIME WITHIN

WHICH TO FILE PETITION FOR REHEARING

The undersigned attorney for the United States, [appellee or appellant] in the above-captioned case, hereby moves for a 30-day extension of time within which to file a petition for rehearing in this case. The judgment in this case was entered on [date], and, unless the time is extended, a petition for rehearing would be due on or before [date].
