GREGORY DOWNS, II, PETITIONER,
DOMINGO URIBE, JR., RESPONDENT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge

1. The January 25, 2011 order by the magistrate judge denying petitioner's Rule 27 request that the court order certain persons to submit to depositions is vacated;
2. For the reasons stated in the magistrate judge's January 25, 2011 order, petitioner's Rule 27 request is denied; and
3. The Clerk of the Court close this case.
