action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This matter was referred to a United States magistrate judge
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On October 19, 2016, the assigned magistrate judge issued findings and recommendation
recommending that plaintiff’s motion for injunctive and other relief related to certain items of
personal and legal property be denied, particularly because the motion is not related to plaintiff’s
claims presented in this action. (Doc. No. 113.) The findings and recommendations were served
on the parties and contained notice that objections thereto were to be filed within thirty days.

UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE
The court notes that plaintiff has claimed that prison officials at CSATF confiscated and failed
to forward to plaintiff two boxes of legal and personal property that include documents which
plaintiff anticipates he will need to oppose any summary judgment motion filed in the future by
the defendants in this action. (Doc. No. 85.) Counsel for defendants are advised that if plaintiff’s
forecast comes to fruition and he is able to make some showing of his need for those documents
to oppose summary judgment, the court will likely require defense counsel to inquire as to the
whereabouts and handling of plaintiff’s property. It may be appropriate for defense counsel to do
so now in anticipation of such an order.
