Anderson, Christopher v. Rock County Jail Medical Staff et. al.

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE WESTERN DISTRICT OF WISCONSIN
CHRISTOPHER A. ANDERSON,
OPINION AND ORDER
DR. BUTLER, et al.,
The court held a Pavey hearing at which the plaintiff, Christopher Anderson,
appeared pro se and defendants appeared by counsel. After hearing evidence and closing
arguments, the court established the following briefing schedule:
1. Defendants may have until Tuesday, August 15, 2017, to file any additional
evidence or legal argument with respect to whether Mr. Anderson’s apparent
confusion over his ability to file a grievance on medical issues is sufficient to excuse
him from the exhaustion defense given his likely psychotic break at the end of
January 2013. See Weiss v. Barribeau, 853 F.3d 873 (7th Cir. 2017).
2. Plaintiff may have until Tuesday, August 22, 2017, to file a response, if any.
3. Should plaintiff file a new lawsuit renewing his claims in this case, the court will
hold a scheduling conference to discuss possible consolidation and an expedited trial
date of February 12, 2018.
Entered this 8th day of August, 2017.
BY THE COURT:
WILLIAM M. CONLEY
