UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
PHILLIP E. SMITH,
LAS VEGAS METRO POLICE
DEPARTMENT, et al.,
Case No. 2:15-CV-01011-JCM-PAL
Presently before the court is the matter of Smith v. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police
Department et al, case no. 2:15-cv-01011-JCM-PAL.
On March 1, 2017, plaintiff Phillip E. Smith filed a motion for 30-day time extension for
interrogatories and production of documents, (ECF No. 46), a motion for appointment of counsel
for his appeal to the Ninth Circuit (ECF No. 48), and a motion for court order for exhibits for his
appeal to the Ninth Circuit (ECF No. 49).
Also on March 1, 2017, plaintiff filed a notice of appeal as to the clerk’s judgment. (ECF
No. 47.) On March 7, 2017, the Ninth Circuit referred the case to this court for a determination
of whether plaintiff’s in forma pauperis status should continue on appeal or whether the appeal is
frivolous or taken in bad faith. (ECF No. 51.) On March 22, 2017, this court ordered that
plaintiff’s in forma pauperis status be revoked. (ECF No. 52.)
On October 5, 2017, the Ninth Circuit dismissed plaintiff’s appeal as frivolous. (ECF
No. 53). Plaintiff’s motions regarding appointment of counsel and court order of exhibits are
therefore moot. Further, plaintiff’s motion for time extension, which requested an extension
through April 6, 2017, to conduct interrogatories and request documents, is moot. The court will
therefore deny plaintiff’s motions.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for time extension (ECF No. 46) be,
and the same hereby is, DENIED as moot.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for appointment of counsel (ECF
No. 48) be, and the same hereby is, DENIED as moot.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion for court order for exhibits (ECF No.
49) be, and the same hereby is, DENIED as moot.
DATED THIS 18th day of October, 2017.
JAMES C. MAHAN
UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
