UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DENO A. JONES,
Case No. 1:17-cv-00232-DAD-BAM (PC)
CALIFORNIA SUPERIOR COURTS, et
ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR COURT
TO TAKE JUDICIAL NOTICE OF
ADMINISTRATIVE REMEDY NOT
(ECF No. 16)
Plaintiff Deno A. Jones (“Plaintiff”) is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma
pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
Currently before the Court is Plaintiff’s second request for the Court to take judicial notice
that his administrative remedies are not available, filed November 2, 2017. (ECF No. 16.)
Plaintiff attaches copies of inmate request for interview forms, inmate appeals, an order from the
Fifth District Court of Appeal of California in Case No. F076113, a letter from Kings Court
reporters, and a case summary of Case No. 17C-0133. (Id.)
As Plaintiff has been previously informed, Rule 201(b) of the Federal Rules of Evidence
provides that a court may judicially notice a fact that is not subject to reasonable dispute because
it: (1) is generally known within the trial court’s territorial jurisdiction; or (2) can be accurately
and readily determined from sources whose accuracy cannot reasonably be questioned. Fed. R.
Evid. 201(b). The Court does not have any matter pending for decision, to which these requests
for judicial notice relate. The Court finds it prudent to take judicial notice of facts, as appropriate
under Evid.Rule 201, only when they relate to matters pending before the Court. Plaintiff may
later request the Court take judicial notice of a fact when that fact becomes relevant to a matter
pending before the Court.
Plaintiff is reminded that, pursuant to the Court’s First Informational Order of February
21, 2017, the Court will not serve as a repository for evidence. (ECF No. 3 at 3.) Plaintiff may
not file evidence (including prison records) with the Court until it becomes necessary to do so in
connection with a motion for summary judgment, trial, or the Court requests otherwise. Should
Plaintiff continue to improperly submit evidence to the Court under the premise of seeking
judicial notice, such evidence may be stricken or returned to Plaintiff. (Id. at 3.)
Accordingly, Plaintiff’s request for judicial notice (ECF No. 16), is HEREBY GRANTED
IT IS SO ORDERED.
