UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
July 23, 2008
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, PLAINTIFF,
MERVYN T. BUTLER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on Defendant Mervyn T. Butler's Motion to Inspect Entire Legal File in Order to Establish Burden of Proof and to Perfect his Hyde Amendment Claim Seeking Attorney's Fees and Costs (Doc. 332). On June 10, 2008, after a hearing, the Court denied Butler's motion for attorney's fees brought pursuant to the Hyde Amendment, but gave Butler 30 days in which to refile. Butler has not filed an amended motion for attorney's fees pursuant to the Hyde Amendment. As such, there is no basis for the instant motion, as it seeks to perfect a claim not before the Court. In addition, Butler has given the Court no indication of what he expects to find in the Government's files, nor why he could not obtain the information sought from his own attorney. For the foregoing reasons, the Court DENIES Butler's Motion (Doc. 332).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
