MEMORANDUM AND ORDER
JOSEPH F. BATAILLON, District Judge.
This matter is before the court on Plaintiff's discovery requests (Filing Nos. 26 and 27), and Defendant's Objection to Plaintiff's discovery requests (Filing No. 31). As Plaintiff has already been informed, shortly after he 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. 4 at CM/ECF p. 1.) Here, the court has not entered a progression order, and will not enter one until after it has ruled on Defendant Patricia Sue Hartwell's Motion to Dismiss. ( See Filing No. 18.) The court will rule on the Motion to Dismiss in its normal course of business. Accordingly, the court will sustain Defendant's Objection to Plaintiff's discovery requests (Filing No. 31). Plaintiff may not engage in discovery until the court enters a progression order.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that: Defendant's Objection to Plaintiff's discovery requests (Filing No. 31) is sustained.
