'Order Granting In Part And Denying In Part 50 Motion For Reconsideration Of The Order Dismissing Case; 51 Motion For Reconsideration Of Claim And All Motions Filed; And 53 Motion To Claim Defendants. Plaintiff Asks This Court To Vacate The 48 Order Dismissing Case And 49 Judgment And Allow Him To Proceed With His Claims Against Shane Hileman (john Doe 1 - Clothing Room Supervisor) And Jeffrey Dennison. This Case Was Dismissed On October 28, 2019, After Plaintiff Missed The Deadline For Identifying Any Of The Unknown Defendants By Name (john Doe 1, John Doe 2, Or Warden Doe) (docs. 23 And 46). Plaintiff Explains That He Missed The Deadline Through No Fault Of His Own; The Prison Misclassified His Mail And Delayed Its Transmission To Him. Under The Circumstances, The Court Grants His Request To Vacate The Dismissal Order And Judgment And Reopen This Case To Proceed With Claims Against Newly-identified Defendant Shane Hileman. However, All Other Requests In His Motions, Including His Request To Pursue Individual Capacity Claims Against Jeffrey Dennison, Are Denied Because Plaintiff Does Not Identify This Individual In Connection With Any Pending Claims-only Potential Future Claims-or Name Him In Place Of John Doe 2 Or Warden Doe. The Clerk Is Directed To (1) Vacate The 48 Order Dismissing Case And 49 Judgment; (2) Reopen This Case; (3) Substitute Newly-identified Defendant Shane Hileman In Place Of Unknown Defendant John Doe 1-clothing Room Supervisor; And (4) Serve This Lawsuit On Defendant Shane Hileman, Who Must Answer Or Otherwise Respond To The Third Amended Complaint Pursuant To The Instructions In The Screening Order At Doc. 18 (see Page 5).
