ORDER TO STAY PROCEEDINGS
Plaintiff, Mikeal Glenn Stine, has submitted a pro se Petition seeking leave to file
a complaint. Mr. Stine is subject to filing restrictions as set forth in Stine v. Lappin, et
al., No. 07-cv-01839-WYD-KLM, Doc. No. 344 at 30-32 (D. Colo. Sept. 1, 2009). Most
recently, Mr. Stine filed a separate request to file a pro se complaint that raised the
same claims he raises in this action. See Stine v. Fed. Bureau of Prisons, et al., No.
12-cv-01234-REB (D. Colo. May 29, 2012). District Judge Robert Blackburn denied Mr.
Stine’s petition to proceed in Case No. 12-cv-01234-REB, and Mr. Stine appealed the
denial. Id., appeal filed, No. 12-1236 (10th Cir. June 8, 2012). Case No. 12-cv-01234REB is pending on appeal in the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
In the event Mr. Stine elects to pay the filing fee on appeal and the court of
appeals reverses the denial of Mr. Stine’s prior action, he would have two separate
actions pending in this court raising the same claims. In these circumstances, the Court
finds that a stay is necessary to avoid the possibility of confusion and duplicative efforts.
“[T]he power to stay proceedings is incidental to the power inherent in every court to
control the disposition of the causes on its docket with economy of time and effort for
itself, for counsel, and for litigants.” Landis v. North American Co., 299 U.S. 248, 254
(1936). Therefore, the Court will stay the proceedings in the instant action pending the
resolution of Mr. Stine’s appeal in Case No. 12-cv-01234-REB. Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that the proceedings in the instant action are stayed pending
resolution of Mr. Stine’s appeal of the dismissal of Case No.12-cv-01234-REB.
DATED July 25, 2012, at Denver, Colorado.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Boyd N. Boland
United States Magistrate Judge
