IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS TEXARKANA DIVISION JOE LOUIS DANSBY V. PETITIONER CIVIL NO. 02-CV-4141 WENDY KELLEY, Director of Arkansas Department of Corrections RESPONDENT ORDER Attorneys for the Petitioner have filed a Motion to Reconsider (ECF No. 289) the Order (ECF No. 288) denying Petitioner’s Motion to Expand Protective Order (ECF No. 282) and the Respondent has responded to the motion (ECF No. 291). The Court, having considered the motion, finds that it should be, and hereby is, DENIED. Not only does the Court find no good cause for expanding the protective order, the Court agrees that, under the circumstances, the more appropriate procedure to modify the protective order would be a motion by the actual counsel for Ward and/or Nooner following a motion to intervene in the Dansby case. See Flynt v. Lombardi, 782 F.3d 963, 967 (8th Cir. 2015)(“permissive intervention under Rule 24(b) is an appropriate procedural vehicle for non-parties seeking access to judicial records in civil cases”). IT IS SO ORDERED this 27th day of October, 2015 /s/ Susan O. Hickey Susan O. Hickey United States District Judge . -1- AO72A (Rev. 8/82)
