Blake v. Moore et al
ORDER granting 25 Motion to Extend Deadlines; denying 26 Motion for Default Judgment. Signed by Honorable Barry A. Bryant on September 13, 2017. (mll)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
Civil No. 4:16-cv-04078
WARDEN MOORE, LIEUTENANT
GOLDEN ADAMS, and STEVEN KING
Before the Court is Defendant Steven King’s Motion to Extend Deadlines (ECF No. 25) and
Plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment. (ECF No. 26)
On April 25, 2017, this Court entered an Amended Scheduling Order setting various deadlines
for discovery completion, the filing of dispositive motions, motions to amend pleadings and join other
parties. ECF No. 16. Defendant King was not named as a defendant until June 21, 2017 and he filed
his answer on July 25, 2017. I find good cause is shown for an extension of certain deadlines in the
Amended Scheduling Order, the request is not intended for the purpose of harassment or delay, and no
party will be prejudiced by the extension. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion for Extend Deadlines (ECF
No. 25) is GRANTED. The extension of deadlines in the Amended Scheduling Order will be
addressed by a separate Court order.
As to Plaintiff’s Motion for Default Judgment against Southern Health Partners, Inc., Southern
Health Partners, Inc. is not a party to this lawsuit. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion for Default
Judgment (ECF No. 26) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 13th day of September 2017.
