IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
October 22, 2007
PABLO ESTRADA, PLAINTIFF,
WILLIAM HAMBY, ET AL. DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is plaintiff's motion for production of all defendants and certain other witnesses for deposition and trial. (Doc. 78).
As a preliminary matter, the Court notes that there is no certificate of service attached to the subject motion, as required by Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 5(d). Furthermore, although plaintiff is proceeding as a pauper, 28 U.S.C. § 1915 does not relieve plaintiff of the duty to issue subpoenas and pay witness fees and mileage for depositions and/or trial. Plaintiff must also properly schedule the depositions of the defendants. The presence of the defendants at trial will be addressed at the final pretrial conference.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the subject motion (Doc. 78) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
CLIFFORD J. PROUD U. S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
