ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO EXTEND DISPOSITIVE
MOTION DEADLINE Doc. 37 REVISED DISPOSITIVE MOTION
/ DEADLINE: SEPTEMBER 1, 2012
On June 16, 2010, Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in
forma pauperis, filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §
1983. Doc. 1. On October 22, 2010, the Court found a cognizable Eighth
Amendment claim for excessive force. Doc. 9. On July 26, 2011, the
Court issued a discovery and scheduling order, setting a deadline to
amend pleadings of January 26, 2012, a discovery deadline of March 26,
2012, and a dispositive motion deadline of June 4, 2012. Doc. 25. On
March 22, 2012, Plaintiff filed a motion for "renewal of scheduling
order" and to postpone his deposition noticed for March 22, 2012. Doc.
34. On April 17, 2012, the Court denied his motion to postpone his
deposition as moot. Doc. 35. On April 30, 2012, Plaintiff filed an
"objection" to the order denying the motion to postpone his
deposition, explaining that he intended to file a motion to
extend the discovery deadline and amend his complaint.*fn1
Doc. 36. In Plaintiff's "objection," he requests an extension
of time to complete discovery because he has been transferred five
times since August 2011. Id. On June 4, 2012, Defendant filed a motion
to extend the dispositive motion deadline seven days. Doc.
Defendant did not respond to Plaintiff's motion for renewal of scheduling order dated March 22, 2012, or Plaintiff's objection dated April 30, 2012.
Plaintiff's motion to extend discovery deadline is GRANTED. The revised discovery deadline is August 15, 2012.
Defendant's motion to extend dispositive motion deadline is GRANTED. Since the Court is also extending the discovery deadline, the Court finds it necessary to extend the dispositive motion deadline past Defendant's requested date. The revised dispositive motion deadline is September 1, 2012.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
