(Doc. 14) PIERCE, et al., THIRTY DAY DEADLINE Defendants. 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 Plaintiff, Dennis Wayne Wilson, was a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This action was closed on April 4, 2017, on a finding that it was barred by the statute of limitations as well as Heck v. Humphrey, 512 U.S. 477 (1994) and Edwards v. Balisok, 520 U.S. 641 (1997). (See Docs. 10-13.) On July 5, 2017, Plaintiff filed a notice indicating that he did not receive the order to show cause (Doc. 10) and findings and recommendation (Doc. 11) until June 26, 2017, as they had apparently fallen behind the desk where letters are placed in the Los Angeles County Central Jail where he was housed since August 22, 2016. (Doc. 14.) Plaintiff apologizes for not responding to either of these orders and requests an opportunity to do so. (Id.) Plaintiff’s lack of response to the dispositive findings in this case appears to have been 25 caused by circumstances beyond his control. Thus, his request to be given opportunity to respond 26 is reasonable. However, given that this action was dismissed based on statute of limitation 27 grounds and because it appears to raise claims that are barred by Heck and Edwards, judgment 28 1 1 will not be set aside at this time. Instead, Plaintiff may file a response addressing whether the 2 claims he raised in this action are barred by the statute of limitations and Heck and Edwards 3 which shall be considered under Rules 59 and 60 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. 4 Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that, within thirty (30) days of the date of 5 service of this order, Plaintiff may file a response to the order to show cause and the subsequent 6 orders that resulted in a dismissal of this action. 7 8 9 10 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: July 7, 2017 /s/ Sheila K. Oberto UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2 .
