IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO WESTERN DIVISION Daniel Rittner, Sr., Case No. 3:13CV1345 Plaintiff, v. ORDER Jesse Williams, et al., Defendants. This is a pro se civil rights suit under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The plaintiff, Daniel Rittner, is an inmate of an Ohio prison who alleges staff there have been, and continue to be, deliberately indifferent to his serious medical needs. In an effort to streamline this litigation and adjudicate the defendants’ motion for judgment on the pleadings (Doc. 94), I barred both sides from filing any pretrial motions without an accompanying motion for leave and a showing of good cause. (Doc. 99). Nevertheless, Rittner has persisted in filing pretrial motions without good cause to do so. (Doc. 128) (denying Rittner leave to file twelve pretrial motions). Pending is Rittner’s emergency motion for a preliminary injunction. (Doc. 129). He alleges the defendants have withheld “his treating physicians’ and specialists’ prescription and treatment plans for [his] objectively serious medical needs.” (Id. at 1). I overrule the motion, due to Rittner’s non-compliance with prior orders, his failure to support his contentions with non-conclusory allegations, and his failure to show good cause for the relief he seeks. So ordered. /s/ James G. Carr Sr. U.S. District Judge 2
