Akkard v. Stovall et al
ORDER granting 7 Motion to Stay. This case is hereby STAYED and ADMINISTRATIVELY TERMINATED. Plaintiff is advised he may file a motion to reopen this case if he decides to pursue the claims made herein. ***Civil Case Terminated. Signed by Honorable Barry A. Bryant on November 20, 2013. (mll)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Civil No. 4:13-cv-04104
SHERIFF RON STOVALL;
WARDEN MARTY BRAZELL;
Plaintiff Demetrius Akkard proceeds in this section 1983 action pro se. Currently before
the Court is Plaintiff's Motion to Stay. ECF No. 7.
Plaintiff sent a letter to the Clerk of the Court requesting that the Court "allows me to
be granted time/extension when such time comes about to make my case."
ECF No. 7.
Because there were no pending motions in this matter requiring Plaintiff's response, the Court
construed this request as one to stay these proceedings. Plaintiff explains in his Motion that
he needs this stay or extension because he has no access to a law library, legal assistance, or
law books at this time to present his case.
Plaintiff filed this matter on October 31, 2013. ECF No. 1. Plaintiff states in his
Complaint that he is currently incarcerated in the Miller County Detention Center awaiting
transfer to the Arkansas Department of Corrections. ECF No. 1. This matter has not yet been
screened for service, Defendants have not entered appearances, and there are no pending
motions on the docket.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion to Stay (ECF No. 7) is GRANTED.
DIRECTS the Clerk to administratively terminate these proceedings. Plaintiff is advised that
he may file a motion to reopen this case if he decides to pursue the claims made herein.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 20th day of November 2013.
