Willie Richard Adams, Jr., Appellant, v. Jay B. Stephens, et al, 946 F.2d 1563 (D.C. Cir. 1991)

Annotate this Case
US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit - 946 F.2d 1563 (D.C. Cir. 1991) May 7, 1991

Before WALD, SENTELLE and HENDERSON, Circuit Judges.



Upon consideration of the motion for summary affirmance, the petition for summary judgment, and the petition to set a trial date, it is

ORDERED that the motion for summary affirmance be granted substantially for the reasons stated in the district court's order filed July 12, 1990. The merits of the parties' positions are so clear as to justify summary action. See Taxpayers Watchdog, Inc. v. Stanley, 819 F.2d 294, 297 (D.C. Cir. 1987) (per curiam); Walker v. Washington, 627 F.2d 541, 545 (D.C. Cir.) (per curiam), cert. denied, 449 U.S. 994 (1980). It is

FURTHER ORDERED, on the court's own motion, that the appellant (Willie Adams) show cause within thirty (30) days of the date of this order why the dismissal of the claims against the remaining appellees should not be summarily affirmed. It is

FURTHER ORDERED that the remaining pleadings be dismissed as moot.

The Clerk is directed to withhold issuance of the mandate herein pending resolution of the remainder of the appeal.

The Clerk is further directed to send a copy of this order to appellant by whatever means necessary to ensure receipt.
