IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
April 8, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
MERCY REGIONAL HEALTH SYSTEMS, LTD., D/B/A MERCY REGIONAL EMERGENCY HEALTH SERVICES AND CLAYTON W. HOBBS, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Reagan, District Judge
On April 4, 2008, the United States moved this Court to stay the above-captioned action until final disposition of the criminal matter in case number 08-CR-20042-MJR (Doc. 21). Therein, the United States argues that because many of the issues in the criminal case are related to the instant action, further proceedings could prejudice the rights of the Defendants with respect to the criminal matter. On April 3, 2008, Defendants filed a response (Doc. 22) stating that they agree that further proceedings in the civil matter could prejudice the Defendants. As a result, Defendants do not object to the United States's request for a stay.
Having reviewed the parties' filings, the Court hereby GRANTS the motion to stay (Doc. 21), and STAYS all further proceedings in this matter until disposition of the criminal matter, Case No. 08-30042-MJR or until further Order of this Court.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
MICHAEL J. REAGAN United States District Judge
