RAY HOBBS, et al.
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiffs’ Motion for Reconsideration (Doc. No. 61).
Defendants filed a Response to the Motion (Doc. No. 63).
In support of their Motion, Plaintiffs ask the Court to reconsider its July 7, 2011 Order (Doc.
No. 56) which denied their Motion to Compel. Plaintiffs state that although they followed the
Court’s directions and submitted requests to review their institutional files, their requests were
denied by Warden Burl.
In their Response (Doc. No. 63), Defendants state Plaintiffs were permitted to review their
institutional jackets on August 29, 2011, and since then have not requested copies of any specific
documents in those jackets.1
Defendants provide copies of documents signed by Plaintiffs,
indicating they reviewed their files. (Doc. No. 63-1.) Defendants state they also have provided
Plaintiffs with numerous documents from their files, including correspondence and classification
hearing review documents. Defendants state if Plaintiffs need copies of other documents, they
should specifically identify those documents and the Defendants will then respond to their requests.
In light of Defendants’ Response to Plaintiffs’ Motion, the Court will deny the Motion.
Plaintiffs’ Motion was filed on August 22, 2011.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Plaintiffs’ Motion for Reconsideration (Doc. No. 61)
is DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Defendants shall respond to Plaintiffs’ Motion for Default
Judgment (Doc. No. 64), which this Court construes as a Motion for Sanctions, within ten days of
the date of this Order.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 12th day of September, 2011.
