Perez v. MWE Services, Inc.
ORDER - Defendant John Zapata's Motion to Compel (filing 14 ) and Motion for Hearing (filing 15 ) are denied without prejudice to reassertion at an appropriate time. Ordered by Magistrate Judge F.A. Gossett. (AOA)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
THOMAS E. PEREZ, Secretary of
Labor, and UNITED STATES
DEPARTMENT OF LABOR,
MWE SERVICES, INC., JOHN
ZAPATA, and KATIE
The above-captioned action was filed on April 4, 2014. (Filing 1.) Defendant John
Zapata filed an answer on May 14, 2014. (Filing 6.) The remaining Defendants have until
July 25, 2014, to submit answers. (Filing 10.) A progression order, authorizing the
commencement of discovery, has not been entered.
Defendant John Zapata, who is proceeding pro se, has filed a motion to compel
discovery (filing 14), as well as a request for hearing regarding the motion to compel (filing
15). Given the early stage of this lawsuit, and the fact that the Court has not entered an initial
progression order, the motion to compel and related motion for hearing will be denied as
premature. Upon the Court’s receipt of the outstanding answers in this case, the Court will
issue a scheduling letter, establishing a deadline for the parties to meet and confer, and to
submit a Rule 26(f) planning report.
IT IS ORDERED that Defendant John Zapata’s Motion to Compel (filing 14) and
Motion for Hearing (filing 15) are denied without prejudice to reassertion at an appropriate
DATED June 13, 2014.
BY THE COURT:
S/ F.A. Gossett
United States Magistrate Judge
