Plaintiff Kevin E. Fields ("Plaintiff") is a prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 2, 2013, Plaintiff filed the instant motion to extend the January 8, 2013 discovery deadline an additional sixty (60) days. Plaintiff reports that he served Defendant Vogel with a second request for interrogatories, admissions and production of documents on September 30, 2012, but Defendant Vogel has not responded.

Defendant Vogel did not file an opposition to Plaintiff's motion for an extension of time. Local Rule 230(l).

1. Plaintiff is granted sixty (60) days from the date of service of this order in which to complete discovery; and
2. Defendant Vogel shall respond to Plaintiff's assertions regarding the failure to respond to discovery within twenty-one (21) days from the date of service of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
