ASOFA V. TAFILELE,
KELLY HARRINGTON, ET AL.,
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO BEGIN DISCOVERY AND MOTION FOR A STATUS CONFERENCE AS MOOT PER SCHEDULING ORDER (Doc. 29)

On October 19, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting a pretrial / status conference and permission to start discovery. Doc. 29. On October 24, 2011, the Court issued a discovery and scheduling order. Doc. 30. Moreover, pro se prisoner cases are not subject to conference requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f). Thus, Plaintiff's request for discovery and a status conference is not necessary per the discovery and scheduling order issued October 24, 2011.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion is DENIED as moot.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
