United States District Court for the District of Columbia
October 5, 2004.
KEITH MAYDAK, et al., Plaintiffs,
UNITED STATES, et al., Defendants.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: EMMET SULLIVAN, District Judge
This matter, remanded in part from the United States Court of
Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, is before the Court
on several pending motions. Because defendants represent that
they intend to file a dispositive motion, the Court will grant
their motion for a protective order and deny plaintiffs' motion
to compel discovery. In addition, defendants seek an enlargement
of time to respond to plaintiffs' motion to join the Bureau of
Prisons' inmate trust fund as a party-plaintiff after the
resolution of its dispositive motion. The Court will grant the
enlargement, but will direct defendants to respond to the motion
now. The Court will set a deadline for defendants' dispositive
motion after the resolution of plaintiff's motion for joinder.
Accordingly, it is
ORDERED that defendants' motion for an enlargement of time [#
264] is GRANTED in part and DENIED in part. Defendants shall file
a response to plaintiff's motion for joinder within fifteen (15)
days of this Order; and it is FURTHER ORDERED that defendants' motion for a protective order
[# 266] is GRANTED, and plaintiff's motion to compel [# 267] is
