D.K. BUTLER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner, now proceeding with retained counsel, on an action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On September 3, 2009, plaintiff's motion, filed on July 17, 2009, and re-filed on July 29, 2009 (evidently to properly notice the motion for hearing), to extend the July 3, 2009, discovery deadline, set in the Scheduling Order, filed on March 13, 2009 (docket # 69), came on for hearing. Plaintiff's counsel, Hassan Abedi, appeared at the hearing telephonically. Defendants were represented by Misha Igra. The court set forth the reasons for denial of the motion on the record at the hearing.
Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that plaintiff's motion to extend the discovery deadline, filed on July 17, 2009 (docket # 75), and re-filed, on July 29, 2009 (docket # 77), is denied.
