This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s discovery requests (Filing Nos. 26
and 27), and Defendant’s Objection to Plaintiff’s discovery requests (Filing No. 31).
As Plaintiff has already been informed, shortly after he filed this action, the clerk’s
office delivered to him a copy of the court’s General Order Number 2007-12, which
states that “[n]o discovery in pro se civil cases assigned to a district judge shall take
place until . . . a progression order is entered unless permitted by the court.” (Filing
No. 4 at CM/ECF p. 1.) Here, the court has not entered a progression order, and will
not enter one until after it has ruled on Defendant Patricia Sue Hartwell’s Motion to
Dismiss. (See Filing No. 18.) The court will rule on the Motion to Dismiss in its
normal course of business. Accordingly, the court will sustain Defendant’s Objection
to Plaintiff’s discovery requests (Filing No. 31). Plaintiff may not engage in
discovery until the court enters a progression order.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Defendant’s Objection to Plaintiff’s
discovery requests (Filing No. 31) is sustained.
DATED this 20th day of June, 2013.
BY THE COURT:
s/ Joseph F. Bataillon
United States District Judge
