IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
February 23, 2006
JOHN MORO, PLAINTIFF,
ANGELA WINSOR, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is plaintiff's motion for class certification. (Doc. 5). Plaintiff presents himself as the representative of a proposed class of Ordo Templi Orientus Gnostic Catholics at Big Muddy Correctional Center whose religious practices are being impeded by prison officials.
A review of the record reveals that no defendants have been served with summons and the complaint. Therefore, plaintiff's motion is premature. Plaintiff is free to file a motion and brief in support of class certification, in accordance with Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for class certification (Doc. 5) is STRICKEN.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD U. S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
