ORDER Denying Plaintiff's 176 Request for Free Copies, signed by Magistrate Judge Gary S. Austin on 3/17/17. (Gonzalez, R)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
REQUEST FOR FREE COPIES
(ECF No. 176.)
ROMERO, et al.,
Plaintiff is a prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with this civil rights
action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 21, 2014, Plaintiff filed a request for the court
to send her a free copy of the docket sheet for this case. (ECF No. 176.)
COPIES OF CASE DOCUMENTS
Plaintiff is advised that the Clerk does not ordinarily provide free copies of case
documents to parties. The Clerk charges $.50 per page for copies of documents. See 28 U.S.C.
§ 1914(a). Copies of up to twenty pages may be made by the Clerk’s Office at this court upon
written request and prepayment of the copy fees. The fact that the court has granted leave for
Plaintiff to proceed in forma pauperis does not entitle her to free copies of documents from the
court. The Court cannot provide free photocopy service, even to litigants proceeding pro se.
The docket sheet for this case is 19 pages long. To request a copy, Plaintiff must
submit a request in writing to the Clerk, a large self-addressed envelope affixed with sufficient
postage, and prepayment of copy costs to the Clerk. Based on the foregoing, this request shall
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s request for a free copy of her
docket sheet is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
