UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
Drayden D. Shumpert,
Order Denying Motion
to Lift Stay
D. Madrid, et al.,
[ECF No. 33]
On January 11, 2017, I stayed this excessive-force lawsuit that Drayden Shumpert brings
against a pair of correctional officers because the criminal case against Shumpert in state
court—which is based on the same altercation as this case—remains pending.1 Shumpert now
moves to lift that stay, arguing essentially that it is unfair to delay this lawsuit when we do not
know when the criminal action may conclude.
Shumpert’s criminal prosecution is still ongoing, and he has not persuaded me that the
stay I entered in January was ill-advised or that circumstances now compel me to lift it.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Shumpert’s Motion to Lift Stay [ECF No. 33] is
DENIED. This case remains stayed pending final judgment in Nevada v. Shumpert, Case No. C-
DATED: March 22, 2017
