PINE BLUFF DIVISION
JEFFREY SCOTT RATCHFORD,
GLADYS M. EVANS, et al.
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiffs’ Motion for Order for Restoration of Files (Doc.
No. 98). Defendants filed a Response in opposition to the Order (Doc. No. 105).
In the Motion, Plaintiff Ratchford claims that Defendants destroyed the legal files he saved
on the Inmate Word Processing System (IWPS). Plaintiff does not, however, provide a list of the

additional information from both parties prior to a ruling on the Motion. Accordingly,
IT IS, THEREFORE, ORDERED that Plaintiff Ratchford shall supplement his Motion
within ten days of the date of this Order. In this Supplement, Plaintiff shall specifically identify the
documents which he seeks to retrieve from the IWPS. Defendants shall file a response ten days after
receipt of Plaintiff’s Response, addressing the documents sought by Plaintiff and his claim of
