IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
January 4, 2008
DARRON R. PERKINS, PLAINTIFF,
ST. CLAIR COUNTY JAIL, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Proud, Magistrate Judge
Before the Court is plaintiff's motion for "continuous response to discovery," which, when read together with plaintiff's motion to "clarify, are construed as seeking a stay of discovery until counsel is appointed to represent plaintiff, and extension of time to respond to outstanding discovery requests. (Docs. 20 and 24).
By separate order the Court has denied plaintiff's motion for appointment of counsel. Therefore, no stay is warranted, but a brief extension of time is necessary to permit plaintiff to respond to a backlog of discovery requests from the defendants.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for "continuous response to discovery" (Doc. 20) is DENIED AS MOOT.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for an extension of time to respond to outstanding discovery requests (Doc. 24) is GRANTED, in that on or before February 1, 2008, plaintiff shall respond to all outstanding discovery requests propounded by the defendants.
