Williams v. Jefferson et al
ORDER denying 12 Motion to Compel. Defendants are, however, directed to treat Williams's motion as a request for his jail file, and respond as set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Signed by Chief Judge Brian S. Miller on 8/26/2014. (jak)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
MARLOW WILLIAMS, SR.
CASE NO: 3:14CV00113 BSM
CHRIS JEFFERSON et al.
On April 28, 2014, plaintiff Marlow Williams, Sr., filed this complaint against
members of the Jonesboro Police Department. On July 28, 2014, Williams filed a motion to
compel, asserting that Craighead County Detention Facility officials have not provided him
with a copy of his jail file. In response, defendants assert that there are no Craighead County
defendants in this lawsuit and that they are willing to provide Williams a copy of his file if
he sends them a written request or discovery request asking for it. Williams filed a reply
indicating that he has already sent such a request. Accordingly, Williams’s motion to compel
[Doc. No. 12] is denied. Defendants are, however, directed to treat Williams’s motion as a
request for his jail file, and respond as set forth in the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 26th day of August 2014.
