WILLIAM NAVARRO CASTILLO,
CIVIL ACTION NO.: 6:16-cv-49
OFFICER CHRISTOPHER BRANTLEY,
This matter is before the Court on Plaintiff’s Motion to Demand a Speedy Trial. Doc. 94.
For the following reasons, I DENY Plaintiff’s Motion.
Plaintiff is suing Defendant under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Doc. 1. In Defendant Brantley’s
Answers, he demands a jury trial. Docs. 49, 60. To date, the Court has conducted frivolity
review, and ruled on a motion to dismiss and a motion for summary judgment. See Docs. 7, 59,
70. Following those rulings, Plaintiff’s claims for excessive force and deliberate indifference to
serious medical needs remain pending. Doc. 72. Plaintiff states that over a year ago, he was
informed during a telephone conference that a trial will be set for his case. Doc. 94 at 1. A
telephone conference was held regarding his case in September 2019, during which the Court
indicated there were no pending discovery issues and the case is ready for trial. Doc. 75. Since
that time, however, Plaintiff has filed multiple motions with the Court seeking leave to amend, as
well as several other notices, letters, and affidavits. Docs. 78–91, 93. This case will be set for
Case 6:16-cv-00049-JRH-BWC Document 95 Filed 11/18/20 Page 2 of 2
trial in the ordinary course of business. Accordingly, I DENY Plaintiff’s Motion to Demand a
SO ORDERED, this 18th day of November, 2020.
