Answer:

Deadlines that fall on the weekend will generally be scheduled for the Friday prior, but this does vary by jurisdiction. For example, the California Code of Civil Procedure specifies that deadlines will be calendared for the following Monday: 

CCP 2024.020(a): Except as otherwise provided in this chapter, any party shall be entitled as a matter of right to complete discovery proceedings on or before the 30th day, and to have motions concerning discovery heard on or before the 15th day, before the date initially set for the trial of the action.

CCP 2016.060: When the last day to perform or complete any act provided for in this title falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday as specified in Section 10, the time limit is extended until the next court day closer to the trial date.
