Plaintiff Anthony Ferraiulolo originally submitted this pro se action for filing on April
24, 2014. Currently before the Court is Plaintiff’s Motion to Preserve Video Evidence. ECF
In this Motion, Plaintiff requests the Court order Miller County Detention Center
(“MCDC”) to “save all recorded audio/video from inside the Facility from December 10th 2013
thru now.” ECF No. 5. Plaintiff alleges there are multiple scenes on this video that will
support his claims of excessive force. Plaintiff also states that he believes MCDC will destroy
this footage if not ordered to preserve by the Court.
Defendants have not yet been served or answered Plaintiff’s Complaint. Therefore, the
Court finds Plaintiff’s request premature and his Motion to Preserve Video Evidence is hereby
DENIED. Once Defendants Answer or file another responsive pleading, Plaintiff may reurge
this motion. Plaintiff is advised that in doing so he must include specific information as to
the video he believes contains evidences such as the dates, times, and areas of the jail where
the alleged excessive force occurred.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 12th day of August 2014.
