ORDER denying 43 Motion to Reopen Case. Signed by Honorable Barry A. Bryant on March 20, 2012. (cnn)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
WELTON JAMES WATSON, II
Civil No. 4:11-cv-04022
MS. CARMALETTA WILLIAMS, Head
Nurse, Miller County Detention Center;
SHERIFF RON STOVALL; CORRECTIONAL
HEALTHCARE CO.; JAIL ADMINISTRATOR,
Miller County Detention Center; and
DR. ROBERT NASH
Plaintiff has filed a motion to reopen this case (ECF No. 43). On August 18, 2011,
Defendants filed a motion to compel (ECF No. 25). Although he filed other documents, Plaintiff
did not respond to the motion to compel. On October 26, 2011 (ECF No. 40), this Court granted the
Defendants' motion to compel and directed Plaintiff to provide Defendants with discovery responses
by November 10, 2011.
On November 30, 2011, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss (ECF No. 41). In the motion,
they advised the Court that they had not received any discovery responses from the Plaintiff. The
motion to dismiss was granted (ECF No. 42) and the case dismissed based on Plaintiff's failure to
obey the order of the Court and his failure to prosecute the action.
In his motion to reopen (ECF No. 43), Plaintiff states he does not believe the Court followed
"protocol" when his case was dismissed. The motion to reopen (ECF No. 43) is denied. Plaintiff
did not provide discovery responses to the Defendants as he was directed to do so by the Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of March 2012.
