September 27, 2019

JOSHUA LEE HOSKINS, Plaintiff,
v.
FRANK EOVALDI, et al., Defendants.

          ORDER

          Hon. Reona J. Daly United States Magistrate Judge.

         This matter is before the Court on the following motions filed by Plaintiff Joshua Lee Hoskins:

• Motion for Leave for Additional Discovery (Doc. 100)
• Motion to Compel (Doc. 101)

Plaintiff indicates he is in need of his cumulative counseling summary, as well as all of his grievances and grievance logs. Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED. Pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil procedure 26(a)(3), pretrial disclosures must be made at least 30 days before trial.
