CASE NO. 3:11CV00188 BD
CLAY COUNTY JAIL, et al.
Defendants have moved for summary judgment on all of Mr. Reagan’s claims in
this lawsuit. (Docket entry #27) Mr. Reagan now has the opportunity to file a response
opposing the motion. His response is due within fourteen (14) days of this Order.1
The response may include opposing affidavits that Mr. Reagan or others have
signed. Affidavits are sworn statements, so they must be either notarized or declared
under penalty of perjury (see 28 U.S.C. § 1746). Unsworn statements will not be
considered in deciding the motion for summary judgment. And to be considered, an
affidavit must be based on the personal knowledge of the person signing it.
Local Rule 5.5(c)(2) includes requirements for parties who are not represented
by counsel. They must: promptly notify the Clerk and the other parties in the case of any
change in address; monitor the progress of the case and to prosecute or defend the case
diligently; sign all pleadings and include a current address, zip code, and telephone
number; and be familiar with and follow both Local Rules and the Federal Rules of Civil
Procedure. Any plaintiff not represented by counsel must respond to communications
from the Court within thirty (30) days, or the case can be dismissed.
If Mr. Reagan files a response, he must also file a separate short statement setting
forth the disputed facts that he believes must be decided at a trial. See Local Rule 56.1,
