UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN SOUTHERN DIVISION ARETHA CALVIN, Case No. 2:15-14396 District Judge Denise Page Hood Magistrate Judge Anthony P. Patti Plaintiff v. HENRY FORD MACOMB HOSPITAL CORP., et al., Defendants. ___________________________________/ ORDER GRANTING AS UNOPPOSED DEFENDANTS’ MOTION TO COMPEL (DE 13) This matter is before the Court for consideration of Defendants’ motion to compel. (DE 13.) LR 7.1 (e)(2) provides that responses to nondispositive motions are due within fourteen days after service of the motion. The motion was electronically filed on December 6, 2016, but no response has been filed and the time for doing so under LR 7.1(e)(2) has expired. Moreover, bearing in mind the standards of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(b), the Court’s initial review of the discovery requests at issue did not lead to a conclusion that any are blatantly, facially improper, and Plaintiff has not provided any reason(s) in response specifying why she should not be required to respond fully to the discovery requests and execute the release authorizations. The motion to compel thus is GRANTED AS 1    UNOPPOSED. Within fourteen days after the entry of this order Plaintiff shall: execute the requested authorizations mentioned in the motion to compel (subject to the extant Stipulated Protective Order (DE 8)); and provide full answers to Interrogatory Nos. 14, 15 and 20 and Requests Nos. 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11 and 17. Defendants shall file a statement of expenses incurred in filing the motion to compel, including attorney’s fees, pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 37(a)(5)(A) by January 11, 2017; Plaintiff shall have until January 25, 2017 to file a response thereto, after which the issue of expenses shall stand submitted for adjudication. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: December 29, 2016 s/Anthony P. Patti Anthony P. Patti UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE I hereby certify that a copy of the foregoing document was sent to parties of record on December 29,  2016, electronically and/or by U.S. Mail.                              s/Michael Williams    Case Manager for the   Honorable Anthony P. Patti  2
