Jones v. Walker et al
ORDER denying 8 Motion to Preserve Video Footage; denying 9 Motion to Subpoena. Signed by Honorable Barry A. Bryant on April 26, 2021. (mll)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
TRALYNN D. JONES
Civil No. 4:21-cv-04034
WARDEN JEFFIE WALKER and
SHERIFF JACKIE RUNION
Plaintiff Tralynn D. Jones filed this 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on April 14, 2021. (ECF No. 1).
In response to this Court’s order, Plaintiff filed an Amended Complaint on April 23, 2021.
(ECF No. 7). Before the Court is a Motion to Preserve Video Footage and a Motion for
Subpoena filed by Plaintiff. (ECF Nos. 8, 9). The Court has not yet ordered service on any
Defendant and therefore no response is necessary to rule on the motions.
In his first motion Plaintiff asks the Court to preserve video footage on “201802021
subpoena “video footage 1:00pm to 3:00pm”. (ECF No. 8). In the second motion, Plaintiff asks
the Court to subpoena grievances “8278736 2-21-21 [and] 8285934 2-23-21”. (ECF No. 9).
Each of Plaintiff’s motions are premature because none of the Defendants have been
served with the Amended Complaint. In addition, Plaintiff is advised that before seeking
assistance from the Court for a subpoena Plaintiff must first attempt to obtain information,
documents, and video footage on his own from Defendants.
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s Motion to Preserve Video Footage (ECF No. 8) and Motion to
Subpoena (ECF No. 9) are DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED THIS 26th day of April 2021.
