EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF
REHABILITATION, et al.,
CASE No. 1:17-cv-01013-MJS (PC)
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
THAT THIS ACTION PROCEED ONLY ON
COGNIZABLE EIGHTH AMENDMENT
CLAIMS AND THAT ALL OTHER
CLAIMS AND DEFENDANTS BE
(ECF No. 1)
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil
rights action brought pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
On October 31, 2017, the Court screened Plaintiff’s complaint and found that it
states cognizable the following claims for damages against Defendants Gregory and
Duran in their individual capacities: against Defendants Gregory and Duran for excessive
force, against Defendants Gregory and Duran for deliberate indifference to medical
needs, and against Defendant Duran for a failure to protect. (ECF No. 7.) The remaining
claims were not cognizable as pled. Plaintiff was ordered to file an amended complaint
or notify the Court in writing if he wished to proceed only on the cognizable claims. (Id.)
Plaintiff responded that he does not intend to amend and instead wishes to proceed with
the cognizable claims. (ECF No. 8.)
Based on the foregoing, it is HEREBY RECOMMENDED that:
1. This action proceed only on the cognizable Eighth Amendment claims
for damages against Defendants Gregory and Duran in their individual
2. All other claims and defendants be dismissed from this action for failure
to state a claim.
These findings and recommendations will be submitted to the United States
District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of Title 28 U.S.C.
§ 636(b)(1). Within fourteen (14) days after being served with the findings and
recommendations, Plaintiff may file written objections with the Court. The document
should be captioned “Objections to Magistrate Judge’s Findings and Recommendations.”
Plaintiff is advised that failure to file objections within the specified time may result in the
waiver of rights on appeal. Wilkerson v. Wheeler, 772 F.3d 834, 839 (9th Cir. 2014)
(citing Baxter v. Sullivan, 923 F.2d 1391, 1394 (9th Cir. 1991)).
IT IS SO ORDERED.
