This action was filed on February 19, 2008, by Plaintiff Oscar Cruz proceeding pro se.
(ECF No. 1.) After the death of Plaintiff Cruz, his success in interest obtained representation.
(ECF Nos. 27, 33.) On November 9, 2009, Plaintiffs Andres Santana and Maria del Rosario
Corona (collectively “Plaintiffs”) filed a first amended complaint alleging that Defendants Chris
Chrones, S. Frauenheim, Kelly Harrington, and Mike Knowles (collectively “Defendants”)
deprived Oscar Cruz and Andres Santana of adequate outdoor exercise. (ECF No. 62.)
On December 9, 2009, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss. (ECF No. 65.) On January
20, 2010, the Court dismissed Plaintiffs’ equal protection and procedural due process claims and
denied dismissal of Plaintiffs’ Eighth Amendment claim. (ECF No. 73.) On June 15, 2012,
Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment as to the only remaining claim, the Eighth
Amendment claim. (ECF No. 142.) On September 14, 2012, the Court granted Defendants’
motion for summary judgment. (ECF No. 188.)
On October 23, 2012, Plaintiff Santana filed a notice of appeal from the order dismissing
his due process and equal protection claims and the order on the summary judgment motion on

Following the decision on appeal, this action is proceeding on Plaintiff Santana’s equal
protection claim against Defendants Chris Chrones, S. Frauenheim, Kelly Harrington, and Mike

Warren E. George Jr. of the Prison Law Office. Therefore, the Court shall set a status conference
to address the status of Plaintiff’s representation and the scheduling of this matter upon remand.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
