MICHAEL BLAKES, Plaintiff,
LINDA FOUTCH, Defendant.
DONALD G. WILKERSON United States Magistrate Judge.
Now pending before the Court is the Motion to Compel filed by Plaintiff, Michael Blakes, on August 15, 2013 (Doc. 87). The Motion is GRANTED IN PART and DENIED IN PART.
Plaintiff seeks full responses to various interrogatories that were served on December 27, 2012. Defendant has failed to respond to this Motion. Notwithstanding this failure, Plaintiff is not entitled to all the information sought. Defendant shall nonetheless produce the following documents:
1. Any reports authored by Linda Foutch related to Plaintiff’s medical care after the June 25, 2010 incident.
2. A list of any degrees or certificates (and dates) that Linda Foutch has received. It is unnecessary to indicate from which institution said degrees/certificates were conferred.
All other categories of information sought by Plaintiff are irrelevant to his claim. For example, any documents regarding complaints made against Defendant Foutch by other inmates or generally are nor relevant to whether she was deliberately indifferent to Plaintiff’s medical needs. In addition, her employment status, the particulars of her background, work history, and personnel actions, are irrelevant to Plaintiff’s claims and may create a security risk if known by Plaintiff or other inmates. Finally, “drafts” of notes are irrelevant to Plaintiffs claims as he should have or will have in his possession the notes actually created by Defendant.
Defendant shall produce these documents by October 11, 2013 and file, on that day, a notice with the Court indicating compliance.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
