ORDER Requiring Defendant Sims to File signed by Magistrate Judge Stanley A. Boone on 07/13/2017. (Flores, E)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORDER REQUIRING DEFENDANT SIMS
TO FILE A STATUS REPORT
Case No. 1:16-cv-00850-LJO-SAB
(ECF No. 25)
CHAD GREENWOOD, et al.,
JULY 19, 2017 DEADLINE
Plaintiff Casey Watkins is appearing pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights
19 action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On May 25, 2017, Defendant Lucious Sims filed a motion
20 to compel Plaintiff to provide responses to Defendant Sims’s first set of interrogatories and first
21 set of requests for production of documents and a motion to deem Defendant Sims’s first set of
22 requests for admissions admitted. (ECF No. 25.)
On July 7, 2017, Plaintiff filed his response to Defendant Sims’s first set of
24 interrogatories. (ECF No. 34.) As it appears that Plaintiff has now provided responses to at least
25 some of Defendant Sims’s discovery requests, the Court will require Defendant Sims to file a
26 status report stating whether he has received responses from Plaintiff for the first set of requests
27 for production of documents and first set of requests for admissions. Alternatively, if Defendant
28 Sims has now received responses to all of his discovery requests that are the subject of the May
1 25, 2017 motion to compel and motion to deem admitted, he may withdraw the May 25, 2017
2 motion to compel and motion to deem admitted. If Defendant Sims believes that Plaintiff’s
3 responses to the discovery requests are deficient, he will need to file a separate motion.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Defendant Sims shall file on or before
5 July 19, 2017, a status report stating whether he has received responses from Plaintiff for the
6 first set of requests for production of documents and first set of requests for admissions.
7 Alternatively, if Defendant Sims has now received responses to all of his discovery requests that
8 are the subject of the May 25, 2017 motion to compel and motion to deem admitted, he may
9 withdraw the May 25, 2017 motion to compel and motion to deem admitted.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
