IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT NORTH DAKOTA SOUTHWESTERN DIVISION
September 13, 2012
THOMAS ALAN SKALICKY, PLAINTIFF,
KOLBY BRAUN , TROY SCHULZ, AND LEANN BERTSCH, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Charles S. Miller, Jr., Magistrate Judge United States District Court
Before the court is a Motion for Interrogatories filed by plaintiff on September 12, 2012. Plaintiff seeks leave to "petition the Defendants to answer and respond to interrogatories." See Docket No. 29.
The court appreciates that plaintiff is eager to commence discovery. However, the court finds that plaintiff's request is premature given the posture of this case. Defendants have yet to file a responsive pleading to plaintiffs.*fn1 Once they do, the court will likely direct the parties to submit proposed scheduling and discovery plans. Until this occurs, the court is not inclined to order discovery.
Accordingly, plaintiff's Motion for Interrogatories (Docket No. 29) is DENIED without prejudice.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Charles S. Miller, Jr.
