Douglas County, Corrections,
This matter is before the Court on the expiration of plaintiff James Cotton’s
(“Cotton”) deadline to file an amended complaint (Filing No. 31). On October 5, 2016,
the Court entered an Order (Filing No. 23) granting defendants Douglas County
Department of Corrections and Douglas County’s Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State

defendant, and granting Cotton leave to file an Amended Complaint within fourteen days.
That deadline was suspended while the Court resolved an issue related to Cotton’s
counsel, and the deadline was extended two more times after the issue was resolved. The
most recent extension stated it was the final extension, and it expired on February 27,
2017. Cotton has not filed an Amended Complaint.
Cotton shall have until March 22, 2017, to show good cause why this case should
not be dismissed with prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated this 8th day of March, 2017.
