1 2 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 3 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 4 5 MICHAEL GONZALES, Plaintiff, 6 v. 7 8 9 A. PODSAKOFF, et al., Case No. 1:15-cv-00924-DAD-SKO (PC) ORDER DENYING MOTION TO COPY AND TRANSFER EXHIBITS FROM THIS CASE TO 1:16-cv-01813 (Doc. 79) Defendants. _____________________________________/ 10 Plaintiff Michael Gonzales, is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in 11 this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On April 5, 2018, Plaintiff filed a motion 12 requesting copies of all exhibits filed in this case and their transfer to case Gonzales v. Fersso, 13 1:16-cv-01813 (ED Cal). (Doc. 79.) Plaintiff contends he is having difficulty obtaining copies of 14 documents he needs in the Fersso case. (Id.) Plaintiff has filed a similar request in the Fersso 15 case in conjunction with a request for a second extension of time to file Plaintiff’s initial 16 disclosures. See Fersso, Docs. 51, 52. 17 18 Although this Court recognizes Plaintiff’s issue, it is for the Court in the Fersso case to decide whether Plaintiff’s request is justified and whether any of his exhibits in the present action 19 are relevant to his claims in the Fersso case. This Court declines to extend its limited resources 20 addressing an issue which is before and properly within the jurisdiction of the Court in the Fersso 21 case. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion filed on April 5, 2018, (Doc. 79), for the exhibits in this 22 action to be copied and transferred to the Fersso case, is HEREBY DENIED. 23 24 IT IS SO ORDERED. 25 26 27 28 Dated: April 17, 2018 /s/ Sheila K. Oberto UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE .
