ALAN BULIFANT, and
CENTER (D.M.C.) HARPER
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF’S FEBRUARY 1, 2017 REQUEST
Plaintiff Wright is currently incarcerated at the Michigan Department of
Corrections (MDOC) Saginaw Correctional Facility (SRF) in Freeland, Michigan.
See www.michigan.gov/corrections, “Offender Search.” On July 13, 2016,
Plaintiff filed the instant lawsuit against five defendants: Terrance Bush, Dirk
Teamer, Daniel Pfannes, and Alan Bulifant (each of the Wayne County Sheriff’s
Office) and the Detroit Medical Center (DMC) Harper Professional Hospital. (DE
1 at 1-4.)
Judge Tarnow has referred this case to me for all pretrial matters. Currently
before the Court are: (a) the Wayne County Defendants’ October 5, 2016 motion
to dismiss in lieu of an answer, regarding which Plaintiff has filed a timely
response (DE 10, DE 18); (b) the hospital’s January 13, 2017 motion to dismiss,
regarding which a response was due on March 6, 2017 (DE 19, DE 20); and (c)
Plaintiff’s March 2, 2017 motion to compel (DE 22), regarding which no response
has been filed.
Meanwhile, on February 1, 2017, Plaintiff requested a copy of the hospital’s
motion to dismiss (DE 19), claiming he did not receive it, and further sought an
extension of time in which to respond. (DE 21.) No Defendant has filed an
opposition to this request.
The Court is cognizant of the hospital’s January 13, 2017 proof of service.
(DE 19 at 63.) Nonetheless, upon consideration, Plaintiff’s request (DE 21) is
GRANTED. No later than Friday, May 19, 2017, Defendant hospital SHALL
serve a copy of its motion upon Plaintiff at his address of record. Plaintiff SHALL
have up to and including Friday, June 2, 2017 by which to file a response.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: May 17, 2017
