JEFFREY A. BEARD, et al., 15 Defendants. 16 17 18 Felipe Garcia (APlaintiff@) is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action 19 pursuant to 42 U.S.C. ' 1983. On January 9, 2015, Plaintiff filed a request for status of his 20 case. (Doc. 19.) 21 The court does not ordinarily respond in writing to requests for status of cases. As a 22 one-time courtesy, the court offers this response, but Plaintiff should not continue to file written 23 requests for status of his case. Plaintiff shall receive notice in this action as a matter of course. 1 24 25 26 27 1 Plaintiff is required to keep the court informed of his current mailing address. Local Rule 182(f) provides: “Each appearing attorney and pro se party is under a continuing duty to notify the Clerk and all other parties of any change of address or telephone number of the attorney or the pro se party. Absent such notice, service of documents at the prior address of the attorney or pro se party shall be fully effective. Separate notice shall be filed and served on all parties in each action in which an appearance has been made.” 28 1 1 All documents filed in this action shall be served upon all parties who have appeared in this 2 action, including Plaintiff. Plaintiff can be assured that he will receive notice, at his address of 3 record, of rulings made in this case and deadlines established in this case, provided he keeps the 4 court informed of his current address. 5 The court ordinarily screens complaints in the order in which they are filed at the court 6 and strives to avoid delays whenever possible. However, there are hundreds of prisoner civil 7 rights cases presently pending before the court, and delays are inevitable despite the court=s best 8 efforts. Plaintiff’s Complaint will be screened in due time. 9 10 Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff’s request for status of his case, filed on January 19, 2015, is RESOLVED. 11 12 13 14 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: February 23, 2015 /s/ Gary S. Austin UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
