UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
CURTIS LEE HENDERSON, SR.,
CASTILLO, et al.,
Case No. 1:20-cv-01199-SKO (PC)
ORDER DIRECTING SPECIAL
APPEARANCE ON BEHALF OF
DEFENDANTS AND RESPONSE
TO PLAINTIFF’S MOTION FOR
TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER
Plaintiff Curtis Lee Henderson, Sr., is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma
pauperis in this civil rights action. The Court has not yet screened Plaintiff’s complaint pursuant
to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, and the defendants have therefore not been served with process.
On September 8, 2020, Plaintiff filed a motion for a temporary restraining order (TRO),
requesting that the Court order officials at Substance Abuse Treatment Facility and State Prison,
Corcoran, keep Plaintiff in single-cell housing. (Doc. 4.) The Court seeks a response from
Defendants before ruling on Plaintiff’s motion for a TRO.
Accordingly, the Court ORDERS:
1. The California Attorney General’s Office shall make a special appearance on
behalf of Defendants for the sole purpose of responding to Plaintiff’s motion for a
TRO within 14 days of the date of service of this order;
2. Within 14 days of the date of service of Defendants’ response to Plaintiff’s motion
for a TRO, Plaintiff may file a reply to Defendant’s response; but he is not
required to do so; and,
3. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve copies of the complaint (Doc. 1), the
motion for a TRO (Doc. 4), and this order on Supervising Deputy Attorney
General Lawrence Bragg.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
