Reyes v. Faulkner County Detention Center
ORDER directing plaintiff to talk with her court-appointed counsel immediately. The Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Order to Reyes at her physical address. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 8/3/11. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Case No. 4:11-cv-133-DPM
Reyes's amended complaint is due in two days.
But her court-
appointed lawyer states that despite his requests that Reyes make an
appointment to discuss her case, she has not done so. He therefore has not
been able to talk to his client and is understandably "reluctant to guess at the
facts required to amend [Reyes's] complaint." Document No. 20, at 1. In light
of these circumstances, the Court grants Reyes's counsel more time to try to
effectively communicate with his client. Reyes's amended complaint is due
30 August 2011. If Reyes still fails to work with counsel to plan her case
before that date, counsel may file a motion to be relieved. The Court cautions
Reyes that if she wishes to keep her court-appointed lawyer, she must talk
with him and meet with him to discuss her claims immediately. To that end,
the Clerk is directed to send a copy of this Order to Reyes at her physical
