Coffey v. Hobbs et al
ORDER denying 50 Motion to Compel. Signed by Magistrate Judge Jerome T. Kearney on 10/27/11. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
RAY HOBBS, et al.
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel (Doc. No. 50). Defendants
filed a Response to the Motion (Doc. No. 51).
In the Motion, Plaintiff complains that Defendants have not responded to discovery requests
submitted to them on May 11, 2011 and May 19, 2011. Defendants state in their Response that
requests for interrogatories were filed prior to issuance of summons and service of Plaintiff’s
Complaint on them in June, 2011, but that they never received a request for production of
documents. Defendants state they responded to all discovery requests submitted by the Plaintiff.
This Motion concerns issues raised previously in Plaintiff’s August 5, 2011 Motion
to Compel (Doc. No. 32), which were addressed in the Court’s August 30, 2011 Order (Doc. No.
41). In that Order, Plaintiff’s Motion was denied as moot, and the Court directed that copies of the
Defendants’ discovery responses be forwarded to the Plaintiff. Id. In the present Motion, Plaintiff
does not identify the documents requested from the Defendants or the relevance of those documents
to his action. Therefore, in light of Defendants’ Response, the Court will deny Plaintiff’s Motion.
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Plaintiff’s Motion to Compel (Doc. No. 50) is
IT IS SO ORDERED this 27th day of October, 2011.
