IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
March 24, 2006
L. D. HOLLIDAY, PLAINTIFF,
WSIE 88.7 FM RADIO STATION, SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY AT EDWARDSVILLE, THOMAS DEHNER, FRANKLIN L. AKERS, ANGELO GENE MONACO, KENT NEELY, SHARON K. HAHS, DAVID J. WERNER, AND BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF SOUTHERN ILLINOIS UNIVERSITY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court are defendants' Motion for Sanctions (Doc. 54) and defendants' Third Motion for Extension of Time to Complete Discovery (Doc. 63).
Both motions arise out of the pro se plaintiff's continuing failure to respond to defendants' discovery requests and defendants' resulting inability to prepare for trial. This case is presently set for trial on June 19, 2006.
Plaintiff has informed the Court that she is quite ill. See, Doc. 62. In view of her situation, the Court will not impose sanctions at this time. However, this case cannot continue to languish.
Upon consideration and for good cause shown, defendants' Motion for Sanctions (Doc. 54) is DENIED.
The Court sets this case for a status conference on April 26, 2006, at 10:00 a.m., before Magistrate Judge Clifford J. Proud, in the Federal Courthouse, East St. Louis, Illinois. The Court will address defendants' Third Motion for Extension of Time to Complete Discovery (Doc. 63) at that time.
Personal appearance by plaintiff and defendants' counsel at the status conference is mandatory.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
