ORDER STAYING BRIEFING SCHEDULE FOR PLAINTIFF'S DECEMBER 10, 2012, FULE 56(d) MOTION
Plaintiff Dwight A. Staten ("Plaintiff"), a state prisoner proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights action on May 5, 2009.

On March 8, 2013, the Court issued an order staying the briefing schedule for Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment, filed on October 23, 2012, pending the outcome of Defendants' recent Motion for Sanctions. The Court finds that the briefing schedule for Plaintiff's December 10, 2012, Rule 56(d)*fn1 should also be stayed pending the outcome of the Motion for Sanctions.
Accordingly, the briefing schedule set forth in the Court's January 22, 2013, order relating to Plaintiff's Rule 56(d) motion is STAYED pending the outcome of the Motion for Sanctions.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
