UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF MISSOURI NORTHERN DIVISION RICHARD W. LESLEY, ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) ) Plaintiff, v. MS. JANE DOE TEAGUE, et al., Defendants, No. 2:15CV59 HEA OPINION, MEMORANDUM AND ORDER This matter is before the Court on plaintiff’s motion to compel and motion for extension of time. The motions are denied. The motion to compel is premature because the Court has not authorized discovery. See E.D. Mo. L.R. 16 - 5.01, 16 - 5.04 (discovery in prisoner cases may not take place until Court enters a Case Management Order). The motion for extension of time is moot. Plaintiff is under the impression that defendant Thompson has filed a motion to dismiss the complaint. He did not. He filed an answer, which does not require a response. Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motions to compel [ECF No. 35] and for extension of time [ECF No. 36] are DENIED. Dated this 7th day of January, 2016 ___________________________________ HENRY EDWARD AUTREY UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
