IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION RICKY BROWN ADC #551211 V. PLAINTIFF 4:11CV00291 DPM/JTR BLACKSTOCK, Officer, Faulkner County Detention Center, et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER The dispositive motion deadline in this § 1983 action expired on January 4, 2012. See docket entry #36. On the same day, Defendants filed a Motion explaining that they have reached an oral settlement. See docket entry #38. Accordingly, they ask that the dispositive motion deadline be “stayed” until they execute settlement documents and file a Joint Motion to Dismiss. Id. Rather than staying the case, which presents internal administrative difficulties, the Court will give the parties thirty days to execute their settlement papers and file a Joint Motion to Dismiss. If they are unsuccessful in doing so, Defendants should file a Motion for an Extension of Time to either finalize their settlement papers or file dispositive motions. -1- IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT: 1. Defendants’ Motion to Stay (docket entry #38) is DENIED. 2. Within thirty days of the entry of this Order, Defendants must file either a Joint Motion to Dismiss or a Motion for an Extension of Time. Dated this 6th day of January, 2012. UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE -2-
