IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TYRONE L. COLLINS
DANNY BURL; JAMES
CRUMPTON; POLLY M. JAMES; and
JANICE BUFORD GRAY
To best use scarce judicial resources efficiently and effectively, this case
needs more development before any trial. It is referred back to Magistrate
Judge Deere. Discovery is reopened. As directed, appointed counsel shall
maximize the use of informal requests for documents, focused written
discovery, and informal interviews, and minimize the use of depositions. Any
deposition should be as short and focused as possible. Defendants may move
for summary judgment on or before 2 August 2013. Discovery will end on the
same date. There will be no independent medical examination until after the
Court decides, assuming some injury, whether Collins has claims that need
trying. Collins’s status report on whether to pursue any race-discrimination
claim, and on whether his conditions-of-confinement and inadequate-medicalcare claims are really the same claim, is due as soon as possible and no later
than 3 May 2013.
