Purdy v. Glenn et al
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER that plaintiff's requests for preliminary injunctive relief (filing nos. 6 , 7 , 8 , 10 , 11 , 12 , and 13 ) are denied without prejudice to reassertion. Any reasserted motions must be legible, comprehensible, and contain sufficient factual detail. Ordered by Judge John M. Gerrard. (Copy mailed to pro se party) (ADB)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
ANTHONY P. PURDY,
GLENN, C/O et al.,
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff’s Motions for Injunction (Filing
Nos. 6 and 11), Motions to Compel (Filing Nos. 7, 10, 12, and 13), and “Motion to
be brought to court to provide evidence” (Filing No. 8). All of these Motions appear
to be requests for preliminary injunctive relief. However, Plaintiff’s handwriting in
these Motions is illegible and, for the most part, the court cannot ascertain the relief
that Plaintiff seeks. The only requests for relief the court can decipher are requests
that the court order the Douglas County Correctional Center to provide him medical
treatment and release him from “Mod 20.”
The court cannot properly evaluate the factors that it must consider when
determining whether to grant Plaintiff’s request for injunctive relief because it cannot
decipher the facts Plaintiff sets forth in support of his Motions. See Dataphase Sys.,
Inc. v. C.L. Sys., Inc., 640 F.2d 109, 112–14 (8th Cir.1981) (setting forth standard for
analyzing a request for preliminary injunctive relief). Therefore, the court will deny
Plaintiff’s Motions without prejudice to reassertion. Any reasserted motions must be
legible, comprehensible, and contain sufficient factual detail.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT: Plaintiff’s requests for preliminary
injunctive relief (Filing Nos. 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, and 13) are denied without prejudice
to reassertion. Any reasserted motions must be legible, comprehensible, and contain
sufficient factual detail.
DATED this 27th day of March, 2013.
