IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF NEBRASKA
February 12, 2013
BARRY W. FLETCHER SR.,
ROBERT P. HOUSTON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Joseph F. Bataillon United States District Judge
MEMORANDUM ) AND ORDER
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff Barry W. Fletcher's ("Plaintiff") "Motion Requesting for Preliminary and Permanent Injunctive Relief." (Filing No. 15.) Although this motion is styled as one seeking injunctive relief, liberally construed, Plaintiff's actual request for relief is that the court order Defendants to turn over all relevant evidence.
Shortly after Plaintiff filed this action, the clerk's office delivered to him a copy of the court's General Order Number 2007-12, which states that "[n]o discovery in pro se civil cases assigned to a district judge shall take place until . . . a progression order is entered unless permitted by the court." (Filing No. 6 at CM/ECF p. 1.) Here, the court has not entered a progression order, and Plaintiff has not convinced the court that allowing the parties to engage in discovery prior to the issuance of a progression order is necessary. Therefore, Plaintiff's discovery request will be denied.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Plaintiff's "Motion Requesting for Preliminary and Permanent Injunctive Relief" (Filing No. 15) is denied.
