Hope v. Mitchell et al
ORDER re 19 MOTION to Compel filed by Alexander, City of, Paul Mitchell. Plaintiff is ordered to respond to the motion to compel by 3/11/13. Signed by Judge D. P. Marshall Jr. on 2/28/13. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
JOHNNY R. HOPE
PAUL MITCHELL, Mayor, City
of Alexander, and CITY OF
The Court notes the defendants' motion to compel Hope to answer their
first set of interrogatories, propounded more than ten months ago. The
Court's usual protocol for handling discovery disputes requires a joint report
from parties rather than motion practice. Document No.13, at 3. In the present
circumstances, however, the Court concludes that is not the best procedure.
The Court orders Hope to respond to the motion to compel by 11 March 2013.
If he fails to do so, or respond to the discovery fully by that date, the Court
will consider dismissing his complaint without prejudice. It appears that
Hope may have abandoned this case.
