1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 PETER STROJNIK, SR., Plaintiff, 12 13 14 15 16 v. Case No. 1:18-cv-01620-AWI-SKO ORDER DENYING REQUEST FOR PERMISSION TO FILE ELECTRONICALLY (Doc. 6) THE VICTUS GROUP, INC. dba SIERRA SKY RANCH, Defendant. _____________________________________/ 17 18 19 Before the Court is Plaintiff Peter Strojnik, Sr.’s Motion for Permission for Electronic Case 20 Filing (the “Motion”). (Doc. 6.) Local Rule 133(b)(2) provides that “[a]ny person appearing pro se 21 may not utilize electronic filing except with the permission of the assigned Judge or Magistrate 22 Judge.” Instead, “[a]ll parties shall file and serve paper documents as required by applicable Federal 23 Rules of Civil . . . Procedure or by these [Local] Rules.” E.D. Cal. Local Rule 133(b)(2). 24 Nonetheless, a pro se party may “[r]equest to use paper or electronic filing as exceptions from these 25 Rules” if (1) they submit a stipulation between the parties “as provided in [Local Rule] 143;” or (2) 26 “if a stipulation cannot be had,” by a “written motion[] setting out an explanation of reasons for the 27 exception.” E.D. Cal. Local Rule 133(b)(3). 28 1 Here, the Motion is neither stipulated to by the defendant, nor does it set forth an explanation 2 of the reasons for the exception. The Court therefore finds that it is inappropriate in this matter to 3 depart from the Local Rule that “[a]ny person appearing pro se may not utilize electronic filing.” 4 E.D. Cal. Local Rule 133(b)(2). Accordingly, the Court DENIES the Motion (Doc. 6), subject to 5 renewal upon a showing of sufficient reason to justify deviating from Local Rule 133(b)(2). 6 7 IT IS SO ORDERED. 8 9 Dated: May 17, 2019 /s/ Sheila K. Oberto UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2 .
