Solomon v. Southern Health Partners et al
ORDER denying 9 Motion for Order. Plaintiff is ordered not to file any additional motion until Complaint has been screened, service ordered and Defendants have answered. Signed by Honorable Barry A. Bryant on May 24, 2016. (mll)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
CLIFTON ORLANDO SOLOMON
Civil No. 4:16-cv-04038
SOUTHERN HEALTH PARTNERS; and
STEVEN KING, Head Nurse, Miller County
Plaintiff Clifton O. Solomon proceeds in this matter pro se and in forma pauperis pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 1983. Before the Court is Plaintiff’s Motion for Order. ECF No. 9.
The Prison Litigation Reform Act (“PLRA”) requires the Court to review complaints in
civil actions in which a prisoner seeks redress from a governmental entity or officer or employee
of a governmental entity to determine if the matter shall proceed. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(a). The
Court is in the process of screening Plaintiff’s Complaint. Therefore, Plaintiff’s Motion for Order
requesting assistance from this Court to obtain copies of medical information, copies of grievances
and other documents from the Defendants is premature. In the event the case proceeds, Plaintiff
will have the opportunity to participate in discovery and file any motions needed to assist Plaintiff
in obtaining the information he has requested.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion for Issuance of Subpoena (ECF No. 9) is DENIED. This
is the second time in less than a month Plaintiff has filed a premature motion for information.
PLAINTIFF IS ORDERED NOT TO FILE ANY ADDITIONAL MOTIONS UNTIL
AFTER HIS COMPLAINT HAS BEEN SCREENED, SERVICE HAS BEEN ORDERED,
AND DEFENDANTS HAVE ANSWERED. FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS ORDER
MAY SUBJECT THIS CASE TO DISMISSAL.
DATED this 24th day of May 2016.
