United States District Court, M.D. Pennsylvania
September 28, 2005.
MIKE PEREZ, Plaintiff,
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: CHRISTOPHER CONNER, District Judge
AND NOW, this 28th day of September 2005, upon consideration of
plaintiff's "additional facts" (Doc. 99) in support of his motion
for enlargement of time (Doc. 97) to respond to defendants'
motion for summary judgment (Doc. 22), in which plaintiff
indicates that his family has retained John J. Griffin, Esq.,
239 South Camac Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 19107, to assist
in the prosecution of this litigation, and that he is awaiting a
visit from counsel, and it appearing that because plaintiff has
forwarded his legal materials to Mr. Griffin, he is unable to
respond to defendants' summary judgment motion, and it further
appearing that in order to ensure the orderly progression of the
litigation, it is necessary to deny the summary judgment motion
until such time as the status of counsel can be ascertained, it
is hereby ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of Court is directed to forward a copy
of this order to prospective counsel, John J.
Griffin, Esq., 239 South Camac Street, Philadelphia,
2. Attorney Griffin is directed to notify the court
on or before October 17, 2005, of his status with
regard to this litigation. 3. Defendants' motion for summary judgment (Doc. 22)
is hereby DENIED without prejudice to reinstate the
motion at any time after October 17, 2005.
4. In the event that counsel does not enter an
appearance on or before October 17, 2005, the motion
for summary judgment will be automatically reinstated
and plaintiff will be required to file a responsive
brief, together with any opposing affidavits,
deposition transcripts or other documents, on or
before October 31, 2005.
