IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS

AHMEEN MUMIT, ADC #95017
RAY HOBBS, et al.
This matter is before the Court on the Defendants’ Motions for Summary Judgment (Doc.
Nos. 86, 89). Plaintiff Jones has filed a Response in opposition to the Motion filed against him
(Doc. No. 97).
Plaintiff Tyrone Jones is a state inmate incarcerated at the East Arkansas Regional Unit
(EARU) of the Arkansas Department of Correction (ADC). He filed this action with co-Plaintiff
Ahmeen Mumit, an inmate incarcerated at the Maximum Security Unit (MSU) of the ADC, pursuant
to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging due process and equal protection violations by the Defendants.
Plaintiffs ask for monetary and injunctive relief from the Defendants.
In their Motions for Summary Judgment, Defendants state Plaintiffs’ Complaint should be
dismissed for numerous reasons. However, Defendants do not address Plaintiffs’ equal protection
claims in their Motions. Therefore, prior to ruling on the Motions, this Court would like Defendants
to supplement their Motions by addressing the equal protection claims. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Defendants file supplements to the summary judgment
motions, addressing the equal protection claims, within ten days of the date of this Order.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Plaintiffs shall file responses to those supplements ten
IT IS SO ORDERED this 13th day of February, 2012.
