Jones v. McClain
ORDER denying 33 Motion to Compel; denying 36 Motion to Appoint Counsel, signed by Chief Judge William C Griesbach on 03/13/2018. (cc: all counsel) (Griesbach, William)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
Case No. 17-C-1523
Outstanding in the above matter are a motion to compel discovery and a motion to appoint
counsel. The motion to appoint counsel is denied for the same reasons stated in the three prior
Orders denying the same motion. The case is straightforward and Jones shows by his filings that
he is capable of communicating with the court and explaining the basis of his claim. The motion
to compel is likewise denied. Jones filed along with his motion his first set of interrogatories and
request for production of documents. The motion to compel is premature until and unless the
defendants fail to respond to the discovery request within the 30 days allowed under the rules. In
addition, although the defendants have now received notice and should be considered served with
Jones’ discovery request, in the future he is advised, as the Clerk indicated in a notice sent to him,
that discovery requests are to be served on the defendant and not filed with the court. In any event,
for the foregoing reasons, both motions are denied.
SO ORDERED this 13th
day of March, 2018.
