1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 ADRIAN SOLORIO, 12 13 14 Plaintiff, v. W. SULLIVAN, et al., 15 Defendants. 16 17 18 1:19-cv-00688-JLT-GSA-PC ORDER FOR CLERK TO RETURN PLAINTIFF’S CHECK #198-1313123 RECEIVED BY THE COURT ON JANUARY 13, 2023 ORDER FOR PLAINTIFF TO SEND THE COURT A MONEY ORDER IN THE AMOUNT OF $292.18 MADE PAYABLE TO DR. A. WAGNER DEADLINE TO SUBMIT MONEY ORDER MADE PAYABLE TO DR. A. WAGNER: JUNE 23, 2023 19 20 21 Adrian Solorio (“Plaintiff”) is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis 22 with this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This case is scheduled for jury trial on 23 September 19, 2023 at 8:30 a.m. before the Honorable Jennifer L. Thurston. 24 On December 30, 2022, the court issued an order granting Plaintiff’s Request Regarding 25 Witness Fees filed by Plaintiff on December 15, 2022. (ECF No. 81.) The order notified Plaintiff 26 that “[i]f Plaintiff wishes to have the U.S. Marshal serve a subpoena on witness Dr. A. Wagner, 27 Plaintiff must submit a money order in the amount of $292.18, made payable to Dr. A. 28 Wagner, to the court no later than January 20, 2023.” (Id. at 2:16-19 (emphasis added.)) 1 1 On January 13, 2023, Plaintiff submitted Check #198-1313123 to the Court in the amount 2 of $292.18, made payable to the U.S. District Court. (Court Record.) Because Plaintiff submitted 3 a Check rather than a Money Order, and the Check being made payable to the U.S. District Court 4 instead of Dr. A. Wagner, the Court shall return Check #198-1313123 to Plaintiff. 5 If Plaintiff wishes to obtain the attendance of Dr. A. Wagner as his witness at trial, 6 Plaintiff must submit a Money Order in the amount of $292.18 made payable to Dr. A. 7 Wagner. A subpoena will not be served upon the unincarcerated witness by the U.S. Marshal 8 unless the Money Order is tendered to the court. Because no statute authorizes the use of public 9 funds for these expenses in civil cases, the tendering of witness fees and travel expenses is 10 required even if the party was granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis. 11 Accordingly, if Plaintiff wishes to have the U.S. Marshal serve a subpoena on Dr. A. 12 Wagner to obtain the attendance of Dr. A. Wagner as a witness at trial, Plaintiff must 13 submit a Money Order in the amount of $292.18, made payable to Dr. A. Wagner, to the 14 Court no later than June 23, 2023. 15 Based on the foregoing, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 16 1. 17 18 The Clerk of Court is directed to return to Plaintiff Check #198-1313123, which was received by the court on January 13, 2023; 2. If Plaintiff wishes to obtain the attendance of witness Dr. A. Wagner at his trial, 19 Plaintiff must submit a Money Order in the amount of $292.18, made payable to Dr. A. Wagner, 20 to the Court no later than June 23, 2023. 21 22 23 24 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: January 18, 2023 /s/ Gary S. Austin UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 25 26 27 28 2
