IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 30, 2007
DELTA L. EADY, PLAINTIFF,
BUREAU OF PRISONS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is plaintiff's motion for an extension of time to file his response to the defendants' motion to dismiss. (Doc. 139). Plaintiff asserts that his copy of the defendants' motion was confiscated, and he has been unable to formulate a response.
Also before the Court is the defendants' motion to extend the time for discovery and the dispositive motion deadline. (Doc. 141). Also before the Court is a supplement to the aforementioned motion, which appears to abandon the request to extend the discovery period, while requesting that the dispositive motion deadline be extended to a date 30 days after the defendants' pending motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies. (Doc. 142, p. 2).
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for an extension of time to respond to defendants' motion to dismiss (Doc. 139) is GRANTED; plaintiff shall file his response on or before August 22, 2007. No further extensions will be granted.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of Court shall mail plaintiff a copy of the defendants' motion to dismiss (Docs. 135).
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, for good cause shown, the defendants' motion to extend the time for discovery and the dispositive motion deadline (Doc. 141) is GRANTED IN PART AND DENIED IN PART. Insofar as defendants appear to have abandoned their request to extend the period for discovery, the motion is denied; discovery has closed. All dispositive motions shall be filed within 30 days of the date the defendants' motion to dismiss (Doc. 135) is ruled on by Chief U.S. District Judge G. Patrick Murphy.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD U. S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
