OPINION AND ORDER denying 19 Motion to Order Defendants file the Wayne County Record; denying 21 Motion for Wayne County Record and STAYING Discovery pending Issuance of a Scheduling Order. Signed by District Judge Robert H. Cleland. (LWag) Modified on 5/12/2011 (LWag).
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
ALI HUSSEIN DARWICH,
Case No. 10-14073
CITY OF DEARBORN
(DEARBORN POLICE DEPARTMENT), et al.,
OPINION AND ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S TWO MOTIONS FOR WAYNE
COUNTY RECORD AND STAYING DISCOVERY PENDING ISSUANCE OF A
Before the court are two motions filed pro se by Plaintiff Ali Darwich requesting
that the court order Defendants to “file [the Wayne County] record before and after
[Darwich’s] kidnapped and tourtrue.” (2/3/11 Mot. at 2.) The court interprets these
motions as requests for discovery. No scheduling order has yet been issued in this
case and the court has recently ordered Plaintiff to file an amended complaint. (5/10/11
Order.) Until the pleadings are finalized, and a scheduling order issued, discovery is
premature. See generally Fed. R. Civ. P. 26. The court will therefore stay all discovery
until further order of the court. Accordingly,
IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s two motions for Defendants to file the Wayne
County Record [Dkt. ## 19 & 21] are DENIED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that court-supervised discovery in this matter is
STAYED pending issuance of a scheduling order after the pleadings are finalized.
