Not really, but discovery requests and appeals are all 30. Motions are usually 21 days. And jury, 14. For the MBE it has been good practice to remember this three numbers because sometimes the answer would be 20 and I know that's not right.
TYIA for reminding me of the 30 day mark. I've been remembering 21 and 14 days. And generally if a party does one thing that they must do in 21 days, they only have 14 days to do the next thing if they're not successful with the first. For example, a D can file a motion to dismiss within 21 days, and if the motion is denied, they only have 14 days to serve their answer.
ETA: OH, and if a D waives service, s/he gets 60 days to file a motion to dismiss or answer, which also helps logically explain why a D would ever waive service.
