Gutierrez and four other inmates confined in the La Palma Corrections Center (LPCC), a Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) facility in Eloy, Arizona, filed a joint pro se Civil Rights Complaint by a Prisoner under 28 U.S.C. 1983, Torrez v. Corrections Corp. of America, No. CV09-2298-PHX-MHM (MHB), doc.# 1.1 The Court severed that action into separate cases and ordered a copy of the Complaint from CV09-2298 be filed in each of the separate cases. (Doc.# 1, 2.) In an Order filed on May 13, 2010, the Court dismissed the Plaintiff's Complaint with leave to file an amended complaint within 30 days. (Doc.# 7.) The Court dismissed the Complaint because Plaintiff failed to comply with the Instructions for completing the court-approved form complaint and he included numerous allegations concerning violations of other inmates' rights rather than setting forth facts to support that his rights had been violated. (Id.) Plaintiff has filed a motion for a 60-day extension of time to file an amended complaint. (Doc.# 9.)

Plaintiff seeks the extension to "research[] the various procedural and legal issues." (Id. at 3.) The factual basis for any claim Plaintiff intends to include in an amended complaint are presumably already known to Plaintiff and do not depend on legal research. Further, the Court previously informed Plaintiff that he should follow the Instructions for completing the court-approved form complaint. Specifically, in an amended complaint, Plaintiff should state the federal or statutory right that he believes was violated and allege the facts that he believes support that a particular defendant was involved in the violation, including when and how. Plaintiff should repeat the process for each violation he alleges. The Court will grant Plaintiff an additional 30 days within which to do so. Warnings A. Release Plaintiff must pay the unpaid balance of the filing fee within 120 days of his release. Also, within days of his release, he must either (1) notify the Court that he intends to pay the balance or (2) show good cause, in writing, why he cannot. Failure to comply may result in dismissal of this action. B. Address Changes Plaintiff must file and serve a notice of a change of address in accordance with Rule 83.3(d) of the Local Rules of Civil Procedure. Plaintiff must not include a motion for other relief with a notice of change of address. Failure to comply may result in dismissal of this action. C. Copies Plaintiff must submit an additional copy of every filing for use by the Court. See LRCiv 5.4. Failure to comply may result in the filing being stricken without further notice to Plaintiff. D.
