IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF ILLINOIS EASTERN DIVISION
April 18, 2013
SCOTT ALAN SCHILD, PLAINTIFF,
WARDEN LINAWEAVER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Milton I. Shadur Senior United States District Judge
Because of the possibility that some case assigned to
this Judge's calendar may inadvertently slip between the cracks in a
figurative sense by not having a next date assigned to it,*fn1
this Court sometimes (though at widely separated intervals)
undertakes the arduous task of going through its entire calendar case
by case. Such a procedure has just been completed, and that vetting
has revealed that this action indeed falls in that no-next-date
Less than ten days after Scott Alan Schild ("Schild") had filed a self-prepared motion under 28 U.S.C. §2241 ("Section 2241"), this Court issued a brief January 22, 2013 memorandum order, a copy of which is attached. As that order reflects, it called on Schild to provide some supplemental information needed to explain his requested relief, while at the same time it asked for some input from the United States Attorney's office. Neither side responded at all, so that this Court's failure to follow through on the matter was the consequence of its not having included the case on its regularly maintained list of matters calling for some follow-up inquiry.
In it unclear whether the silence that has descended in this case (on both sides of the "v." sign) reflects that the problem identified by Schild--or perhaps more accurately not identified by Schild--has been resolved. But in any event both Schild and the United States Attorney's office are reminded once again that each owes this Court a response. In the absence of any further input received in this Court's chambers on or before April 29, 2013, this action will simply be dismissed without prejudice.
