In Re: Ohio Execution Protocol Litigation
ORDER TO COMPLY FORTHWITH - re 1252 Amended Complaint. Signed by Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz on 9/25/17. (kma)
IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF OHIO
EASTERN DIVISION AT COLUMBUS
In re: OHIO EXECUTION
Case No. 2:11-cv-1016
Chief Judge Edmund A. Sargus, Jr.
Magistrate Judge Michael R. Merz
This Order relates to All Plaintiffs
ORDER TO COMPLY FORTHWITH
In its Decision and Order Granting in Part and Denying in Part Defendants’ Motion for a
Scheduling Order, the Court wrote:
With respect to each claim for relief pleaded therein, Plaintiffs
shall indicate to which claims made in the Fourth Amended
Complaints of Plaintiffs Tibbetts, Otte, and Campbell the particular
claim is parallel.
(ECF No. 1128, PageID 43294.)
The Fourth Amended Complaint contains the following at footnote 42:
The claims alleged below are enumerated using the numbering
used in the Fourth Amended Complaint filed by Plaintiff Campbell
(ECF No. 978). It is intended that the forthcoming Amended
Individual Supplemental Complaints filed by individual Plaintiffs
will likewise maintain the same numbering. Thus, they are
“parallel” in the respect that they use the same numbering and have
some legal theories and/or factual allegations that are the same.
The entirety of the legal theories and the factual allegations,
however, is not or will not be necessarily identical to the legal
theories and/or factual allegations presented in Campbell’s Fourth
Amended Complaint or the Fourth Amended Complaints filed by
Plaintiff Tibbetts and former Plaintiff Otte.
(ECF No. 1252, PageID 45721).
Footnote 42 does not comply with the prior Decision and Order. “Parallel” does not
mean “identical.” Plaintiffs’ counsel are ordered to comply with the prior Decision and Order by
filing forthwith a document which contains in parallel columns (1) each claim for relief (cause of
action) in the Fourth Amended Omnibus Complaint (ECF No. 1252) and (2) each claim for relief
in the Fourth Amended Complaint of Plaintiff Campbell, paired with the claim or claims in the
first column which is parallel to the claim in the first column in that it has “some legal theories
and/or factual allegations that are the same.”
