Decoteau et al v. Raemisch et al
ORDER Requiring Supplement re: 146 MOTION for Order to Speak at Hearing filed by Isaac Benavidez, by Judge William J. Martinez on 04/15/2016. (cthom, )
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLORADO
Judge William J. Martínez
Civil Action No. 13-cv-3399-WJM-KMT
ANTHONY GOMEZ, and
RICK RAEMISCH, in his official capacity as the Executive Director of the Colorado
Department of Corrections, and
TRAVIS TRANI, in his official capacity as the Warden of the Colorado State
Penitentiary and Centennial Correctional Facility,
ORDER REQUIRING CLASS MEMBER ISAAC BENAVIDEZ TO SUPPLEMENT HIS
MOTION FOR TRANSPORTATION
Before the Court is a letter filed on April 14, 2016, which the Court will refer to as
the “Motion for Transportation.” (ECF No. 146.) The Motion for Transportation was
written by Isaac Benavidez, an inmate at the Sterling Correctional Facility (“SCF”) who
claims to be a member of the inmate class that will be affected by the pending
Proposed Settlement Agreement. Benavidez requests that he be transported to the
June 29, 2016 Fairness Hearing to speak there. This request is not specific enough for
the Court to evaluate whether Benavidez should be permitted to speak at the hearing.
The Court therefore ORDERS as follows:
By letter postmarked no later than May 6, 2016, Benavidez shall supplement his
Motion for Transportation by explaining:
his specific objections to the Proposed Settlement; and
why he needs to be physically present at the Fairness Hearing to explain
Class Counsel’s and Defendants’ obligation to respond is governed by this
Court’s order entered January 19, 2016 (ECF No. 130).
Dated this 15th day of April, 2016.
BY THE COURT:
William J. Martínez
United States District Judge
