Owens et al v. Hobbs et al
ORDER granting plaintiff an extension, until October 18, 2012, to file a motion for service containing the information specified in the June 14, 2012 Order. Signed by Magistrate Judge J. Thomas Ray on 9/21/12. (kpr)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
PINE BLUFF DIVISION
LANCE MITCHELL OWENS,
Arkansas Department of Correction, et al.
On June 14, 2012, the Court entered an Order giving Plaintiff ninety days to file
a Motion for Service containing the full names of and service addresses for the John
Doe Defendants. See docket entry #10. On August 16, 2012, Plaintiff filed a Notice
explaining that Defendants did not file an Answer until August 3, 2012, thereby
making it difficult for him to timely discover the identities of the John Doe
Defendants. See docket entries #24 and #25. Accordingly, he seeks additional time
to file his Motion for Service. The Court finds good cause for granting that request.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT:
Plaintiff is granted an extension, until October 18, 2012, to file a Motion
for Service containing the information specified in the June 14, 2012 Order.
Plaintiff is reminded that if he fails to timely and properly do so, the John
Doe Defendants will be dismissed, without prejudice pursuant to Local Rule 5.5(c)(2).
Dated this 21st day of September, 2012.
