IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
LARRY CRAIG RUSSELL
MOTOROLA, INC. MOBILE
BUSINESS DEVICES; DOROTHY
HODGES; SUSAN KANE; MATTHEW
QUIGLEY; JOHN MARTENS; and
The individual defendants' motion to dismiss is granted. Russell's pro
se complaint makes no allegation that Hodges, Kane, Quigley, or Martens
were involved in designing, making, or selling the allegedly defective
telephone. Russell says, Document No. 16, that he needs these individuals'
testimony to make his case at trial. Fine. A person may be a witness in a case
without being a party to the case. The Court urges Russell to review the
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure because he must follow them. E.g., FED. R.
CN. P. 32 (on using depositions in court proceedings).
Motion, Document No. 13, granted. All Russell's claims against Dorothy
Hodges, Susan Kane, Matthew Quigley, and John Martens are dismissed
without prejudice for failure to state a claim. The Court directs the Clerk to
terminate all these individuals as parties.
