Thomas v. Coleman

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION


January 7, 2008

DWIGHT THOMAS, PLAINTIFF,
v.
PERCY COLEMAN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge

MEMORANDUM ORDER

This Court's December 10, 2007 memorandum order ("Order") gave pro se plaintiff Dwight Thomas ("Thomas") the benefit of considerable doubt in reading Thomas' Complaint as having suggested a possible 42 U.S.C. §1983 ("Section 1983") claim against two of the defendants he had named: Percy Coleman (whom Thomas identifies as Illinois' supervisor of parole) and Lieutenant Garbs of Stateville Correctional Center. Now Thomas has submitted two filings--one using a form of Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus in the Circuit Court of Cook County, and the other using this District Court's form of Motion for Appointment of Counsel--with the first of those stating that Thomas "would like to be present every court date so I can know whats going on in case and would like to take the case to trial with in 6-months so the case will not be prolonged."

Neither of those quoted requests will be honored. Instead the previously ordered initial status hearing will be held at 8:45 a.m. February 19, 2008 (see Order at 5), with the Attorney General's office still being expected to make arrangements for Thomas to be available for telephonic participation (see id. at 5 n.3).*fn1
