Dermott City Jail, et al.
Plaintiff has filed this pro se action alleging that, while he was in the Dermott
City Jail, from December 18 to 28, 2013, Defendants violated his constitutional rights
and committed the state tort of negligence by not allowing him to bathe and by
denying him medical care for a rash.
On October 23, 2014, Plaintiff filed a Motion to Compel arguing that
Defendants failed to answer five of his interrogatories and requests for production of
documents. Doc. 34. Defendants did not respond to that Motion to Compel.
Accordingly, on December 1, 2014, the Court granted the Motion, and gave
Defendants fourteen days to answer Plaintiff’s discovery requests.

mailed their answers to this discovery to Plaintiff. Doc. 42.
On May 12, 2014, the parties consented to proceed before a United States Magistrate Judge.
On January 12, 2015, Plaintiff filed a Second Motion to Compel asserting that
Defendants’ December 22, 2014 discovery answers were incomplete. Doc. 44. He
contends that Defendants’ discovery answers refer to “attached” documents that are
not included and that he has never received.
Defendants have not responded to the Motion to Compel. The Court will give
Defendants until March 6, 2015 to respond to Plaintiff’s Second Motion to Compel.
If Defendants fail to file a Response by that date, the Court will grant Plaintiff’s
Second Motion to Compel.
