UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
August 23, 2007
JAMES PRATT, CARLA MURRAY, AND ERIK GRIFFIN, PLAINTIFFS,
THE ILLINOIS DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS AND TERRY MCCANN, INDIVIDUALLY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gilbert, District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on defendants' motion to sever (Doc. 20). The plaintiffs have filed a brief in opposition to defendants' motion (doc. 21), and defendants have filed a reply (Doc. 22). Having reviewed the briefs and the record in this case, the Court finds that severing this action now is inappropriate. The Court will consider, however, separating the individual plaintiffs' cases for trial pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 42.
The Court hereby DENIES the Defendants' motion to sever (Doc. 20).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
J. PHIL GILBERT DISTRICT JUDGE
