IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS WESTERN DIVISION BRANDON T. SHEETS, ADC #652781 v. PLAINTIFF 4:11-cv-00357-JMM-JTK CLAYTON EDWARDS, et al. DEFENDANTS ORDER This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment against Defendants Clayton Edwards and Jeff Hacker (Doc. No. 42). In support, Plaintiff states that Defendants failed to comply with the discovery deadline of February 28, 2012. In Response, Defendants state they filed their Answer on June 28, 2011 (Doc.
