EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 1:20-cv-01735-NONE-BAM (PC)
YSUSI, et al.,
(Doc. No. 12)
Plaintiff Pablo Piña is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant
ORDER ADOPTING FINDINGS AND
DISMISSAL OF CERTAIN CLAIMS AND
to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
On May 11, 2021, the assigned magistrate judge screened plaintiff’s first amended
complaint and issued findings and recommendations that this action proceed on two of plaintiff’s
claims: a claim for excessive force against defendant Ysusi for shooting plaintiff with a
“launcher” after a fight in the prison yard had stopped; and a claim for retaliation against
defendant J. Gonzales. (Doc. No. 12.) The magistrate judge further recommended that all other
claims and defendants be dismissed from this action for failure to state a cognizable claim for
relief. (Id.) The findings and recommendations were served on plaintiff and contained notice that
any objections were to be filed within fourteen (14) days after service. (Id. at 9.) No objections
have been filed, and the deadline to do so has expired.

de novo review of this case. Having carefully reviewed the entire file, the court finds the findings
and recommendations to be supported by the record and by proper analysis.

adopted in full;
2. This action shall proceed on plaintiff’s first amended complaint, filed April 26, 2021,
(Doc. No. 10), against defendant Ysusi for excessive force in violation of the Eighth
Amendment and against defendant J. Gonzales for retaliation in violation of the First
3. All other claims and defendants are dismissed from this action for failure to state a
cognizable claim for relief; and
4. This action is referred back to the magistrate judge for proceedings consistent with this
IT IS SO ORDERED.
