IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
April 18, 2011
EARL MARSHALL SMITH, JR., PLAINTIFF,
SERGEANT GERALD R. ALTER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
On March 4, 2011 Dr. Adeyemi Fatoki filed a motion for sanctions by reason of his having been named a co-defendant in this action. At the most recent status hearing, counsel for Dr. Fatoki confirmed that the motion had been withdrawn as to the appointed counsel for plaintiff Earl Marshall Smith ("Smith"), but as to Smith himself the motion was continued pending Smith's dismissal of Dr. Fatoki as a defendant (something that Smith's appointed counsel said would be done promptly).
This Court has just ordered and received its periodic Motions Report, listing all motions pending in cases on its calendar. That printout reveals that Dkt. 140--Fatoki's motion for sanctions--is still reported as a live motion. Accordingly this Court orders Smith's counsel to file the total dismissal of Dr. Fatoki as a defendant, so that the motion may be eliminated from the list.
