UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
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
Plaintiff Michael Gonzales, is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in
this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On April 5, 2018, Plaintiff filed a motion
requesting copies of all exhibits filed in this case and their transfer to case Gonzales v. Fersso,
1:16-cv-01813 (ED Cal). (Doc. 79.) Plaintiff contends he is having difficulty obtaining copies of
documents he needs in the Fersso case. (Id.) Plaintiff has filed a similar request in the Fersso
case in conjunction with a request for a second extension of time to file Plaintiff’s initial
disclosures. See Fersso, Docs. 51, 52.
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
are relevant to his claims in the Fersso case. This Court declines to extend its limited resources
addressing an issue which is before and properly within the jurisdiction of the Court in the Fersso
case. Accordingly, Plaintiff’s motion filed on April 5, 2018, (Doc. 79), for the exhibits in this
action to be copied and transferred to the Fersso case, is HEREBY DENIED.
24 IT IS SO ORDERED.
