LAWRENCE, et al., Defendants. 17 ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR COPIES OF LOCAL RULES, RULES CIVIL PROCEDURE, AND RULES OF CRIMINAL PROCEDURE (ECF No. 5) 18 19 20 Plaintiff is a federal prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil 21 rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff’s complaint is pending screening by 22 the Court. (ECF No. 1.) 23 On June 1, 2017, Plaintiff filed a notice with Court requesting that the Court correct 24 his name from “Armando Heredia Villareal” (the name entered into the electronic filing 25 system by the Clerk) to “Amando Villareal Heredia” (Plaintiff’s actual name). (ECF No. 5) 26 Per Plaintiff’s request, the correction has been made and is reflected on the case docket. 27 Plaintiff also requests the Court send him copies of the Local Rules, the Federal 28 Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. The Court is not 1 obligated to provide free copies of documents to litigants, and the fact that the Court has 2 granted leave for Plaintiff to proceed in forma pauperis does not entitle him to free copies 3 of documents from the Court. Marrero v. Rose, No. 1:10-CV-00509-LJO, 2013 WL 4 1314044, at *1 (E.D. Cal. Apr. 1, 2013); see also 28 U.S.C. § 2250 (articulating when an 5 indigent litigant is entitled to copies without cost.) Plaintiff’s request for copies of the 6 above-listed documents is thus DENIED. Plaintiff is advised to seek the assistance of his 7 prison law librarian should he wish to refer to these and other rules, regulations, and 8 statutes. 9 10 11 12 IT IS SO ORDERED.
