Sheriff, Faulkner County, et al.
The proposed findings and recommendations [Doc. No. 35] submitted by United
States Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney recommending dismissal of plaintiff Rashan
Dixon for failing to respond to discovery have been received. New counsel has been
appointed since that time, however. See Doc. No. 45. Accordingly, the proposed findings
and recommendations will not be adopted, and Dixon will not be dismissed. Instead, Dixon’s
new lawyers should have an opportunity to respond to discovery. The motion for extension
of time [Doc. No. 44] to respond to the proposed findings and recommendations is denied
as moot, and a new scheduling order will follow.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 26th day of September 2017.
