Case 2:12-cv-00229-DPM-JTR Document 116 Filed 01/07/14 Page 1 of 2

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

EASTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS

HELENA DIVISION

DEVERICK SCOTT,
ADC #131042

PLAINTIFF

V. 2:12CV00229 DPM/JTR

DANNY BURL, Warden,
Arkansas Department of Correction, et al.



DEFENDANTS

ORDER

Plaintiff has filed a “Motion for a Subpoena Duces Tecum” asking the Court

to issue subpoenas requiring the presence of several individuals, documents, and other

physical evidence to be present at trial. Docs. 114. The motion is premature because

no trial date has been set, and Defendants have until February 3, 2014, to file

dispositive Motions. If any of Plaintiff’s claims survive the filing of dispositive

motions, the Court will appoint counsel to represent him and let the District Judge

know that the case is ready to be set on his calendar for a jury trial. Appointed

counsel can subpoena witnesses and ensure that relevant evidence will be available

at trial.



IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED THAT Plaintiff’s Motion for a Subpoena

Duces Tecum (Doc. 114) is DENIED.
