IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MISSISSIPPI COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPT., et al.
Defendant Sanders has moved for summary judgment on the claims raised in this
lawsuit, and Ms. Heard has responded to the motion. (Docket entries #37, #48) Ms.
Heard, however, also has requested a continuance of the trial scheduled in this matter
based on the Defendant’s failure to timely respond to her discovery requests. (#44)
Defendant Sanders has no objection to the continuance, and requests an extension of time
to provide Ms. Heard the discovery responses at issue. (#49)
The motion to continue (#44) is GRANTED. Because Defendant Sanders has now
provided Ms. Heard the discovery at issue, the motion for enlargement of time (#49) and
the motion to compel (#46) are DENIED as moot. Defendant Sanders’s responses will be
deemed timely. The parties will have an additional thirty (30) days to engage in discovery
and to supplement their summary judgment papers. Ms. Heard’s request for sanctions is
DENIED. The bench trial scheduled for May 19, 2014 is CANCELLED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 8th day of May, 2014.
