Dukes v. Harrington et al
ORDER VACATING 39 Judgment and ORDER Requiring Defendant to File a Response to Complaint Within Thirty (30) Days signed by Magistrate Judge Dennis L. Beck on 9/12/2014. (Jessen, A)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No. 1:12-cv-00941 LJO DLB PC
ORDER VACATING JUDGMENT
ORDER REQUIRING DEFENDANT TO FILE
A RESPONSE TO COMPLAINT
Plaintiff Darnell Dukes (“Plaintiff”) is a California state prisoner proceeding pro se and in
forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
On August 19, 2014, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals remanded the action to this Court
with instructions to vacate the judgment. Citing Albino v. Baca, 747 F.3d 1162 (9th Cir. 2014), the
Ninth Circuit stated that an unenumerated Rule 12(b) motion is no longer the proper procedural
device for raising the issue of exhaustion.
Accordingly, the judgment is VACATED.
The Court further ORDERS Defendant to file a response to the complaint within thirty (30)
days of the date of service of this order.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
