TOMMIE E. EVANS,
Case No. 17-C-1436
BRIAN FOSTER, et al.,
On October 23, 2018, the court conducted a status hearing in the above matter. Plaintiff
Tommie E. Evans, appearing pro se, advised the court that he had been able to identify the John Doe
correctional officer named in his complaint. Evans indicated that actual name of the John Doe is
Correctional Officer Ross. Accordingly, the court granted the oral motion to amend the complaint
and substitute Correctional Officer Ross for John Doe in the original complaint.
Based upon the foregoing, the Clerk is directed to refile the Complaint with Correctional
Officer Ross substituted for John Doe. Counsel for the defendants has agreed to accept service
pursuant to the Memorandum of Understanding with the court on behalf of Correctional Officer
Ross. Correctional Officer Ross is therefore granted 20 days from today to file an answer to the
Amended Complaint naming him as the John Doe defendant.
