In Schmalfeldt v. Grady et al, the court issued a “Roseboro Order” which essentially is an explanation to a pro-se plaintiff on what happens during the Motion To Dismiss and Motion for Summary Judgment phases.
The order is here. It contains, as an attachment, Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule 12 and Rule 56.
Does the court know he doesn’t read the rules? Asking for a friend.
