IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
DWAYNE E. JOHNSON
ED ADAMS, Captain,
Brassell Detention Center
Plaintiff, Dwayne Johnson, is a pretrial detainee proceeding pro se in this §
1983 action. He has recently filed three nondispositive Motions, which the Court will
I. Plaintiff’s Motion to Dismiss
Plaintiff has filed a Motion seeking permission to dismiss or withdraw the
Motion to Suppress and/or Compel that he filed on August 22, 2012. See docket
entries #16 and #20. The Court previously denied Plaintiff’s Motion to Suppress
and/or Compel on September 21, 2012. See docket entry #25. Thus, Plaintiff’s
Motion to Dismiss is denied as moot.
II. Plaintiff’s Motions to Compel
Plaintiff had filed two Motions asking the Court to compel Defendants to
produce a witness list and security camera footage. See docket entries #21 and #22.
Defendant explains that Plaintiff has not sent him any discovery requests. See docket
entry #24. Thus, it appears that Plaintiff is filing Motions with the Court before
sending discovery requests directly to Defendant.
As explained to Plaintiff in the September 21, 2012 Order, he must mail his
discovery requests directly to Defendant, rather than filing them in the record. Thus,
his Motions to Compel are denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
Plaintiff’s Motion to Dismiss (docket entry #20) is DENIED AS MOOT.
Plaintiff’s Motions to Compel (docket entries #21 and #22) are DENIED.
Dated this 1st day of October, 2012.
