IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
September 28, 2011
LARRY M. JOHNSON PLAINTIFF,
MICHAEL RANDLE, SUZANN GRISWOLD, DONALD GAETZ, LOYD HANNA, JIM WINTERS, MIKE LILLARD, RONALD BROCKHOUSE, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Williams, Magistrate Judge:
This action came before the Court on Plaintiff Larry M. Johnson's ("Mr. Johnson's") Second Motion for Order to Compel Production of Documents (Doc. 111). Mr. Johnson, an inmate at the Menard Correction Center ("Menard"), alleges that the Illinois Department of Corrections' (IDOCs') lacto-ovo-vegetarian ("LVO") diet, as planned on paper, does not provide him with adequate nutrition, and that the LVO diet, as administered by Menard, is even more deficient. On September 28, 2011, the Court continued a hearing on Mr. Johnson's one remaining Motion to Compel (Doc. 111). The following Order is a summary of the Court's rulings on the Record at the Motion Hearing and as such, it is not intended to alter or amend those rulings in any way.
The Court took up each of the relevant paragraphs within Mr. Johnson's Motion to Compel, most of which included multiple requests, in turn. The Court DIRECTED Defendants to provide Mr. Johnson with all of the information that he requested in paragraphs 8, 9, 12, 13 and 14. Further, the Defendants were DIRECTED to provide the specific typewritten vegan and LVO menus that Mr. Johnson requested in paragraph 10, to the extent that those menus do in fact exist. Finally, Mr. Johnson's request in paragraph 11for additional information regarding inmates who worked in the Inmate and Employee Kitchens in 2009 and 2010 was DENIED. Accordingly, Mr. Johnson's Motion to Compel was GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Defendants SHALL provide Mr. Johnson with a copy of all of the documents as outlined above on or before October 11, 2011.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
