ORDER DENYING MOTION (Doc. 48)
Plaintiff Donald J. Ackley ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On December 9, 2010, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting referral to the Pro Se Prisoner Settlement Program. (Doc. #48.) Plaintiff claims a referral is appropriate because Defendants have failed to file a timely dispositive motion.*fn1

Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
