This matter is before the Court on Motions for Guidance1 filed by non-party Jimmie Nicholas
Brzezinski seeking advice as to whether he can move under this case for an order enforcing the
injunction issued in this case or whether he should file an original lawsuit.
Plaintiff Walter Jones filed a Complaint on July 19, 2005. On September 28, 2006, the Court
entered an Order issuing a preliminary injunction enjoining Defendants from enforcing MDOC PD
05.03.118(HH)(23)(Effective January 1, 2006) pending the resolution of the case. (Doc. #46) On
August 31, 2010, the Court entered a Judgment against Plaintiff and an Order dismissing the case

taken in good faith. 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(3); Coppedge v. United States, 369 U.S. 438, 445 (1962),
