IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI JACKSON DIVISION CORNELIUS TAYLOR VS. CMCF 720 CLINIC, MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, CHRISTOPHER EPPS, LAWRENCE KELLY and GLORIA PERRY ORDER This matter came before the court on a review of the docket, which revealed that the Plaintiff filed a Motion for Transcript and Other Pleadings on June 16, 2006, which remains pending. Magistrate Judge Alfred G. Nicols, Jr. was originally assigned to this matter; however, he retired from this court on February 17, 2006. This case was not reassigned to another Magistrate, probably because it appeared that all proceedings before this court were completed with the Plaintiff's appeal to the Fifth Circuit. In an earlier Order, issued on December 5, 2005, Judge Nicols had ordered that the only evidence of testimony that exists in this case -- the recording of the Omnibus Hearing -- be transcribed and included in the record on appeal. Apparently, the court inadvertently failed to forward that Order to the court reporter who recorded that hearing. This case has now been assigned to the undersigned United States Magistrate Judge to complete the remaining tasks over which this court has jurisdiction. As the Plaintiff has appealed his case, this court's jurisdiction is limited to acts that will "aid the appeal, correct clerical errors, or enforce its judgment so long as the judgment has not been stayed or superseded."

426 F. 3d 745, 751 (5th Cir. 2005).

The costs of this transcription shall be paid by the court, in accordance with Judge Nicols's December 5, 2005, Order. 2.

IT IS SO ORDERED, this the 4th day of October, 2006.
