The plaintiff, Dustin Robert Williamson, a self-represented prisoner, filed this civil rights
matter pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This matter is before the court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)

to offer cause for the delays in conducting discovery. (ECF No. 99.) Specifically, Williamson
describes the defendants’ belated responses to his initial discovery requests as well as the limited
supply of resources available to him during the period of time at issue. Accordingly, for good cause
shown, it is hereby
ORDERED that Williamson shall have until October 27, 2016 to propound any additional
or follow-up discovery requests to the defendants. The defendants shall have thirty days in which
to respond to any such requests, in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.
