PageID 42 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT MIDDLE DISTRICT OF FLORIDA OCALA DIVISION JOHN WESTLEY, Plaintiff, v. Case No: 5:17-cv-60-Oc-CEMPRL GREGORY N. HULTMAN, ON TOP OF THE WORLD CONDOMINIUM ASSOCIATION, INC., ELIZABETH V. CUTTER, MERRILL LYNCH, COLDWELL BANKER REAL ESTATE LLC and FLORIDA ATTORNEY GENERAL OFFICE Defendants. ORDER This matter is before the Court for consideration of pro se Plaintiff's Motion for Electronic Filing (Doc. 8), in which Plaintiff requests permission to electronically file and to respond to opposing parties using the Court's CM/ECF system. As a preliminary matter, the Court notes that the district judge recently entered an order to show cause why this case should not be transferred to the Tampa Division. (Doc. 12). Consequently, in light of the pending order to show cause, and this Court's Administrative Procedures for Electronic Filing which state that a pro se litigant is not permitted to file electronically, absent authorization by the Court, Plaintiff's motion (Doc. 8) is due to be DENIED without prejudice at this time. Plaintiff may renew his request once it is resolved whether the case will remain in this division or whether it will be transferred to the Tampa Division.
