WILKERSON, Magistrate Judge:
On July 22, 2013, Defendants Shane Childers, Michael Durbin, Harold Schuler, Robert
Thornton, and Randy Valdez, filed a Motion for Summary Judgment arguing that Plaintiff failed to
exhaust his administrative remedies with respect to the claims against them. Plaintiff has failed to
respond to the Motion by the deadline of August 26, 2013. In light of Plaintiff’s pro se status, the
Court extends the deadline for response to September 30, 2013. In addition, this matter is SET
for a Pavey v. Conley, 544 F.3d 739 (7th Cir. 2008), hearing on October 23, 2013 at 1:30 p.m.
before the undersigned Judge. Defendants shall appear in person (by counsel) and Plaintiff shall
appear by video-conference. Plaintiff is nonetheless WARNED that the failure to respond to the
Motion for Summary Judgment SHALL result in a cancellation of the hearing and a Report and
Recommendation on the disposition of the Motion that may recommend that judgment be granted
in favor of Defendants.
In response to an Order directing Plaintiff to identify Defendants Arnez, Davies, and Clark
(Doc. 32), Plaintiff has provided a physical description of “Arnez:” a Lieutenant who works at Big
Muddy River, weighing 250 pounds, 5 foot, 7 inches tall, with black hair, moustache, and eyes (he
wears thin, silver, wire-rimmed glasses), and “always” wears an IDOC baseball cap (Doc. 33).
Based on this description, and keeping in mind the relevant time period, February to March, 2012,
Defendant’s counsel shall contact the litigation coordinator at Big Muddy River Correctional
Center in an attempt to ascertain the name of the individual so described. Defense counsel shall
provide a report to the Court by September 30, 2013, and indicate whether such a person exists
and where he is located for service of process.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: September 12, 2013
DONALD G. WILKERSON
