Matthews v. Holland
ORDER STRIKING Plaintiff's 34 Unsigned Motion for Court Reply, signed by Magistrate Judge Sheila K. Oberto on 5/19/17. (Marrujo, C)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
IVAN LEE MATTHEWS,
HOLLAND, et al.,
Case No. 1:14-cv-01959-SKO (PC)
ORDER STRIKING PLAINTIFF’S
UNSIGNED MOTION FOR COURT
Plaintiff, Ivan Lee Matthews, is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis
in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. ' 1983. On May 18, 2017, Plaintiff filed an
unsigned motion “for court reply.” (Doc. 34.) The Court cannot consider unsigned filings and
Defendants need not file a response to an unsigned pleading. Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(a); Local Rule
131(b). It appears, however, from Plaintiff’s filing that he has received neither the Discovery and
Scheduling Order which issued in this case on April 26, 2017, nor the order denying his request
for entry of default which issued on May 3, 2017.
Thus, it is HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion for court’s reply, filed on May 18,
2017, is STRICKEN FROM THE RECORD in this action. The Clerk’s Office is directed to
serve copies of the Discovery and Scheduling Order (Doc. 28) and the order denying his request
for entry of default (Doc. 32) on Plaintiff.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
