UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
Case No.: 1:14-cv-00921-LJO-SAB (PC)
ORDER DISMISSING ACTION FOR FAILURE
TO COMPLY WITH A COURT ORDER TO POST
SECURITY, AND DENYING PLAINTIFF’S
MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT AS
[ECF Nos. 59, 61]
Plaintiff Archie Cranford is a civil detainee proceeding pro se in this civil rights action
pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Individuals detained pursuant to California Welfare and Institutions
Code § 6600 et seq. are civil detainees and are not prisoners within the meaning of the Prison
Litigation Reform Act. Page v. Torrey, 201 F.3d 1136, 1140 (9th Cir. 2000).
On December 8, 2016, the Court granted Defendants’ motion for an order requiring Plaintiff to
post security due to his vexatious status, and Plaintiff was directed to post security in the amount of
$14, 195.00 within thirty days or the action would be dismissed. (ECF No. 61.) Over thirty days
have passed and Plaintiff has failed to post security. Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that the
instant action is dismissed, and Plaintiff’s motion for summary judgment filed on November 14, 2016,
is denied as moot.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
