The Court will grant the Motion in part and deny the Motion in part. I. Procedural Background On April 6, 2010, Plaintiff John Calvin Neuendorf, II, who is confined in the Maricopa County Fourth Avenue Jail, filed a pro se civil rights Complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. 1983 (Doc. 1). Plaintiff did not immediately pay the $350.00 civil action filing fee or file an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis with the Complaint. On the first page of the Complaint, Plaintiff marked the box next to "First Amended Complaint." Despite this indication that the Complaint was meant as a First Amended Complaint, the Clerk of Court treated the pleading as a new Complaint and opened the instant case because Plaintiff had not filled in a case number in the caption of the Complaint. Upon investigating the matter, the Court determined that the Complaint was apparently meant as a First Amended Complaint in another case filed by Plaintiff (CV 10124-PHX-RCB (DKD)). In the interest of justice, the Court, by Order filed April 9, 2010 Dockets.Justia.com 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 (Doc. 3), dismissed this case without prejudice and directed the Clerk of Court to file a copy of the Complaint (Doc. 1) as a First Amended Complaint in case number CV 10-124-PHXRCB (DKD), nunc pro tunc April 6, 2010. Judgment was entered in the instant case on April 9, 2010 (Doc. 4). On September 2, 2010, Plaintiff filed a Notice of Appeal (Doc. 7). On August 9, 2010, Plaintiff filed a "Motion to the Court" (Doc. 5), in which he asked for "extensions & or the re[]opening and new directives" for this and two other cases. Then, on August 20, 2010, Plaintiff filed a "Motion for Consideration to Reopen Case" (Doc. 6), in which he requested that the Court reopen this and one other case. By Order filed September 16, 2010 (Doc. 10), Plaintiff's "Motion to the Court" (Doc. 5) and "Motion for Consideration to Reopen Case" (Doc. 6), which the Court treated as being brought pursuant to Rule 60(b) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, were both denied. On November 4, 2010, the Mandate of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (Doc. 16), dismissing Plaintiff's appeal (Doc. 7) for lack of jurisdiction, was filed in this action. While the appeal was still pending, Plaintiff filed a "Motion: Bond For Costs On Appeal In A Civil Case Rule 7" (Doc. 11), a "Motion For Discovery (Injuries)" (Doc. 12), a "Motion for Bond for Costs on Appeal in a Civil Case Title II Rule 7" (Doc. 13), a "Motion: For Transcripts of Comple[]te Record" (Doc. 14), and a "Motion: To or for Reconsideration Rule 60(B)" (Doc. 15). By Order filed November 16, 2010 (Doc. 17), the Court denied all of these Motions. II. Pending Motion for Copy of Docket On November 15, 2010, Plaintiff filed a "Motion: for Copy of Docket CV 00766RCB" (Doc. 17), in which Plaintiff seeks a copy of the docket and the original Complaint for CV 10-124-PHX-RCB (DKD), "to include" CV 10-766-PHX-RCB (DKD), because his "paperwork has been damaged due to the flooding of [his] cell and is destroyed." Plaintiff's Motion will granted to the extent that the Court will direct the Clerk of Court to send Plaintiff a copy of the docket in this action and denied in part as to all other relief requested. This Court is not in a position to act as a copy service for Plaintiff. Moreover, this case is closed and must remain closed. -2- 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 IT IS ORDERED: (1) Plaintiff's "Motion: for Copy of Docket CV 00766-RCB" (Doc. 17) is granted in part to the extent that the Clerk of Court must send to Plaintiff a copy of the docket in this action and denied in part as to all other relief requested.
