IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS
February 19, 2013
ANDREW C. HRUBY, PLAINTIFF,
MARCUS HODGE, COUNSELOR STRUBHART, FUNK, UNKNOWN PARTY, AND NURSE SELLERS, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Phil Gilbert District Judge
MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
This matter comes before the Court on plaintiff Andrew C. Hruby's appeal (Doc. 57) of Magistrate Judge Philip M. Frazier's January 31, 2013, order setting the deadline to file amended pleadings as March 1, 2013. Essentially, Hruby seeks an extension of time to file an amended complaint.
A district court reviewing a magistrate judge's decision on nondispositive issues should modify or set aside that decision if it is clearly erroneous or contrary to law. See Fed. R. Civ. P. 72(a); 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(A). After a review of Magistrate Judge Frazier's March 1, 2013, order, the Court finds that it is neither clearly erroneous nor contrary to law. Accordingly, the Court DENIES Hruby's appeal (Doc. 57). The Court suggests Hruby file a motion seeking an extension of time to file an amended complaint from Magistrate Judge Frazier.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
J. Phil Gilbert
