C/A No.: 1:11-1585-MBS-SVH
Plaintiff, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, is a pretrial detainee
incarcerated at Greenville County Detention Center (“GCDC”) and brings this action
against GCDC employees alleging violations of 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pursuant to the
provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b) and Local Civil Rule 73.02(B)(2)(d) (D.S.C.), all
pretrial proceedings have been referred to the undersigned.
This matter comes before the court on the motions of Plaintiff for an extension of
time. [Entry #35, #36]. Plaintiff requests additional time to conduct discovery, including
obtaining a copy of his medical records. Plaintiff’s motions are granted. Defendant is
directed to provide Plaintiff with a copy of his GCDC medical records by January 31,
Additionally, the deadline for the completion of discovery is extended until
February 9, 2012 and the deadline for filing dispositive motions is extended until
February 28, 2012. Plaintiff is advised that all discovery requests to Defendants should be
served on counsel for Defendants and not filed with the court.
Plaintiff also requests that the undersigned direct the United States Marshals
Service to search for Defendant Ward to insure proper service. However, a review of the
docket and Defendant’s answer [Entry #21] reveals that counsel has made an appearance
for Defendant Ward and has not asserted an affirmative defense based on improper
service. Therefore, further service on Ward appears to be unnecessary.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
