ORDER denying 39 Motion to Request Inclusion of Real Property in this Case. Signed by Chief Judge William Keith Watkins on 9/29/2016. (wcl, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE MIDDLE DISTRICT OF ALABAMA
JOHN W. TISDALE, JR., et al.,
THE CITY OF ANDALUSIA,
CASE NO. 2:16-CV-387-WKW
Before the court is Plaintiff John W. Tisdale, Jr.’s motion to request
inclusion of real property in this case. (Doc. # 39.) In the motion, Tisdale seeks
(1) an order expanding the May 27, 2016 Temporary Restraining Order (Doc. # 8)
to prohibit Defendant from destroying certain real property; or, alternatively, (2) a
new temporary restraining order prohibiting Defendant from destroying the
To the extent that Tisdale seeks an amendment of the May 27, 2016
Temporary Restraining Order (Doc. # 8), the motion is futile because the May 27,
2016 Temporary Restraining Order expired on August 26, 2016. (Doc. # 23.) See
Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b)(2) (“The [TRO] expires at the time after entry – not to exceed
14 days – that the court sets, unless before that time the court, for good cause,
extends it for a like period or the adverse party consents to a longer extension.”).
To the extent that the motion seeks a new temporary restraining order, the
motion is due to be denied because the motion does not meet the requirements of
Fed. R. Civ. P. 65(b)(1).
Accordingly, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff John W. Tisdale, Jr.’s motion to
request inclusion of real property in this case (Doc. # 39) is DENIED.
DONE this 29th day of September, 2016.
/s/ W. Keith Watkins
