Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.*fn1 This action is proceeding on plaintiff's September 15, 2009 amended complaint. (Dkt. No. 8.) Plaintiff alleges defendant Jones was deliberately indifferent to plaintiff's serious medical needs. On September 14, 2010, a revised scheduling order issued setting the discovery deadline for December 6, 2010, and requiring all pretrial motions to be filed on or before February 7, 2011. (Dkt. No. 25.) The pretrial motions deadline has now passed and neither party has filed a dispositive motion. Defendant shall inform the court whether she intends to seek leave of court to file a dispositive motion, or whether the court should simply set this matter for trial. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendant notify the court, within fourteen days, whether she intends to seek leave of court to file a dispositive motion.
