This case was filed on September 12, 2013. (ECF No. 1.) On 19 October 6, 2017, Plaintiff filed a notice of appeal to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which 20 is presently pending. (ECF No. 278.) 21 On October 26, 2017, Plaintiff filed a motion for status of particular rulings in this case. 22 (ECF No. 284.)

Plaintiff is advised that the court of appeals has access to the status of this 7 case via the district court’s docket and has not indicated to this court that further status is 8 required at this stage of the proceedings to resolve Plaintiff’s appeal. Therefore, this request is 9 denied. 10 11 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this order resolves Plaintiff’s motion for status filed on October 26, 2017. 12 13 14 IT IS SO ORDERED.

Austin UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2 If Plaintiff requires a copy of the court’s docket sheet for this case, she should submit a request in writing to the Clerk, together with a money order for payment of copies (at fifty cents per page), and selfaddressed envelope large enough to contain the copies, with sufficient postage affixed. See 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a). Plaintiff’s docket sheet is currently thirty-one pages long. 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. 2
