IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS TEXARKANA DIVISION CHRISTOPHER ANTONIO CRENSHAW v. PLAINTIFF Civil No. 4:17-cv-04002 NURSE L. REDFEARN; LIEUTENANT GOLDEN ADAMS; WARDEN M. MOORE; GRIEVANCE OFFICER A. LANDRETH; And SHERIFF RON STOVALL DEFENDANTS ORDER Plaintiff Christopher Antonio Crenshaw proceeds in this action pro se and in forma pauperis pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Currently before the Court is Defendant Redfearn’s Motion to Compel. ECF No. 15. Defendant Redfearn has not attempted to confer with Plaintiff in an effort to obtain the discovery responses without court action as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 37. Plaintiff’s incarceration does not excuse Defendant from attempting to resolve the discovery dispute in good faith without court intervention by contacting him through written correspondence notifying him of his failure to timely respond and giving him a deadline to respond prior to filing a motion to compel. Accordingly, Defendants’ Motion to Compel (ECF No. 15) is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED this 6th day of April 2017. /s/ Barry A. Bryant HON. BARRY A. BRYANT UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
