ORDER granting 38 Motion to receive notices of electronic filing, granting in part 39 Motion for the court to provide free electronic copy and granting 40 Motion Continuance to allow for Butler to Reply. Signed by Magistrate Judge Robert T. Numbers, II on 1/6/2017. Order to plaintiff via US Mail at PO Box 4252, Cleveland, TN 37320. (Marsh, K)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF NORTH CAROLINA
Terry Lynn Butler,
Margaret Ann Ballard,
Before the court are three motions filed by pro se Plaintiff, Terry Lynn Ballard. Plaintiff’s
first motion seeks receipt of notices of electronic filings (“NEF”). D.E. 38. The motion is
GRANTED. Within ten (10) days of the date of this order, Plaintiff shall advise the court, in
writing, of the email address at which he wishes to receive notices of electronic filings.
Plaintiff has also filed a motion for the court to provide free electronic copies. D.E. 39.
The motion is GRANTED IN PART. Once identified by Plaintiff and received by the Clerk’s
Office, Plaintiff’s preferred email address shall be registered to receive e-noticing for this case.
After Plaintiff’s email address is registered with the court’s PACER system, he will receive
notices of electronic filings when a document or pleading is filed. Upon filing a submission, the
notice of electronic filing will allow a registered user one “free look” at filing, after which the
user must pay PACER fees to view the filing again. Accordingly, once registered, Plaintiff will
have the opportunity to receive a free electronic copy of future filings.
Plaintiff also filed a motion for a continuance. D.E. 40. The motion seeks additional time
to file a reply to Defendant’s motion to dismiss. D.E. Plaintiff avers that he was impacted by the
recent wildfires in Tennessee which impeded his ability to file a timely reply to the motion. For
good faith shown, the motion is GRANTED. Plaintiff may file a reply to the motion to dismiss
within 30 days of the date of this Order.
Dated: January 4, 2017.
