Watson v. Jamsen et al
ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT'S 19 Motion for Protective Order - Signed by Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen. (CCie)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF MICHIGAN
District Judge Linda V. Parker
Magistrate Judge R. Steven Whalen
CHARLES JAMSEN, ET AL.,
Before the Court is Defendant Sirena Landfair’s motion for protective order
staying discovery until after her pending motion for summary judgment is resolved [Doc.
I have filed a Report and Recommendation, recommending that Defendant
Landfairs’ and Defendant McCarthy’s motions for summary judgment be granted because
Plaintiff failed to exhaust his administrative remedies before filing suit, as required by 42
U.S.C. § 1997e(a). Plaintiff has 14 days to file objections to that Report and
Recommendation. It would be a potential waste of resources to proceed with fact
discovery until Defendants’ motions are disposed of.
Accordingly, Defendant’s motion for protective order [Doc. #19] is GRANTED.
Discovery by and from Defendant Landfair is STAYED pending final resolution
of her pending motion for summary judgment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: August 11, 2017
