IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
October 2, 2007
CEDRIC WEBB, PLAINTIFF,
EUGENE MCADORY, S. FURLON, LT. KORANDO, AND MAJOR MARTIN, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the court is plaintiff's Discovery Motion. (Doc. 16).
Despite the title of the pleading, it is not really a motion; it is a request for defendants to produce documents. Such a request should simply be mailed to defendants' attorney, and not filed with the court. See, Local Rule 26.1(b). If defendants fail to respond within 30 days, or if they object to producing the documents, plaintiff may then file a motion to compel. Any such motion to compel should be accompanied by copies of the request for production and the objections.
Plaintiff's Discovery Motion (Doc. 16) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE
