United States District Court, W.D. Kentucky, Louisville Division
MEMORANDUM OPINION AND ORDER
COLIN H. LINDSAY, Magistrate Judge.
This matter is before the Court on a motion filed by Plaintiff Caliph Alja-Iz ("Alja-Iz") requesting that the Court order Defendant University of Louisville ("University") produce Alja-Iz's "official transcripts" at the University's cost ("Motion"). (DN 20.) Defendants University of Louisville, Dr. James Ramsey, Dr. Thomas Riedel, Dr. Bingtuan Li, Dr. Jiaxu Li, Dr. Changbing Hu, and Dr. Prasanna Sahoo (collectively "Defendants") have filed a response ("Response") (DN 32) to the Motion. Alja-Iz did not file a reply. This matter is ripe for review.

Finally, Alja-Iz requests that the University produce his "official MA graduate transcript for May 12, 2012." (Id. )
Alja-Iz filed as an attachment to the Motion an official transcript issued to him by the University. (DN 20 at 3.) The transcript sets forth Alja-Iz's academic record for the following academic periods:
1. Fall 1996;
2. Spring 1997;
3. Summer 1997;
4. Fall 1997;
5. Spring 1998;
6. Fall 1998;
