WILSON v. ESSEX COUNTY JAIL RE-ENTRY PROGRAM et al
ORDER Administratively terminating Plaintiff's 37 Motion for Default Judgment, etc. Signed by Chief Judge Jose L. Linares on 8/3/17. (cm, )
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEW JERSEY
Civil Action No.: 17-694 (JLL)
ESSEX COUNTY JAIL RE-ENTRY PROGRAM,
IT APPEARING THAT:
1. On February 3, 2017 pro se Plaintiff David Wilson filed the within action seeking to
recover damages pursuant to, inter alia, 42 U.S.C.
§ 1983. (ECF No. 1). This Court dismissed
the action against all Defendants, with the exception of Defendant Davis, on April 3, 2017. (ECF
Nos. 12, 13).
2. On that same date, Plaintiff filed his Amended Complaint (ECF No. 14), which is the
operative Complaint at this time.
3. On June 2, 2017, Plaintiff effectuated service on Defendant Davis. (ECF No. 23).
4. Default was entered against Defendant Davis, but was later vacated as Magistrate Judge
Joseph A. Dickson had entered an Order extending Defendant Davis’ time to answer until August
17, 2017. (ECF Nos. 29, 31).
5. Thereafter, Plaintiff filed two separate motions. The first is a Motion for Default
Judgnient as to Defendant Davis. (ECF No. 37). The second motion is a Motion for Leave to File
a Second Amended Complaint. (ECF No. 35). It is apparent that the Motion for Default Judgment
is premature since default has been vacated against Defendant Davis (see Fed. R. Civ. P. 55(b)),
and because Plaintiff has since sought to further amend his Complaint.
IT IS THEREFORE on this
day of August, 2017,
ORDERED that Plaintiffs Motion for Default Judgment (ECF No. 37) is hereby
ADMINISTRATIVELY TERMINATED; and it is further
ORDERED that the termination is not an adjudication on the merits; and it is further
ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court shall forward Plaintiff a copy of this Order via
Chief Judge, United States District Court
