Gonzalez v. Razo et al
ORDER DENYING Motion, With Prejudice, and DIRECTING Clerk's Office to Return Exhibits to Plaintiff 18 , signed by Magistrate Judge Sheila K. Oberto on 8/31/15. (Hellings, J)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
MANUEL ANTONIO GONZALEZ III,
ORDER DENYING MOTION, WITH
PREJUDICE, AND DIRECTING CLERK’S
OFFICE TO RETURN EXHIBITS TO
J. RAZO, et al.,
Case No. 1:15-cv-01098-LJO-SKO (PC)
Plaintiff Manuel Antonio Gonzalez III (“Plaintiff”), a state prisoner proceeding pro se,
17 filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on July 16, 2015. On August 26, 2015,
18 Plaintiff submitted exhibits to his complaint and requested that they be received, stating “[he] is
19 aware the exhibits will be placed on the record electronically.” (Doc. 18.)
On July 17, 2015, the Court denied Plaintiff’s motion to transfer exhibits from his closed
21 case to this case. In the order, Plaintiff was informed that pleadings must be complete within
22 themselves at the time of filing and no circumstances justifying deviation from the rule were
23 justified. It is unclear if Plaintiff misunderstood the order or is intentionally attempting to file the
24 exhibits in contravention of the prior order. Regardless, the Court cannot serve as a repository for
25 the parties’ evidence, and evidence supporting Plaintiff’s pleading may not be filed separately and
26 subsequent to the filing of the operative pleading. Local Rule 220.
If evidence is submitted, it must be filed concurrently with whatever pleading, motion, or other filing it is submitted
in support of; it may not be filed separately and at an earlier or later date than the filing it is intended to support.
Therefore, Plaintiff’s request that the exhibits be filed is DENIED, with prejudice, and the
2 Clerk’s Office is HEREBY DIRECTED to return his exhibits.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
