1 2 3 4 5 6 7 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 8 EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 9 10 ISRAEL MALDONADO RAMIREZ, 11 1:21-cv-01213-DAD- EPG Plaintiff, ORDER DENYING MOTION TO ANSWER 12 13 14 v. (ECF No. 18) KHALE, et al., Defendants. 15 16 17 Plaintiff is a civil detainee who filed this civil rights action pro se on August 11, 2021. On 18 November 18, 2021, the District Judge adopted this Court’s September 28, 2021 findings and 19 recommendations to dismiss this case as frivolous and directed the Clerk to close this case. (ECF 20 Nos. 11, 16). The same day as the District Court issued this order, Plaintiff filed a “motion to 21 answer.” (ECF No. 18). The motion is difficult to understand, but it appears to ask if the Clerk 22 received Plaintiff’s objections to the undersigned’s findings and recommendations and seeks 23 permission to file an answer. 24 To the extent that Plaintiff simply wants to know if his objections were received, the 25 Court notes that they were filed on October 27, 2021, but the District Court ultimately overruled 26 them in adopting this Court’s findings and recommendations. (ECF Nos. 13, 16). To the extent 27 that Plaintiff moves for permission to file an answer, such a filing is procedurally inappropriate 28 because this case is now closed. 1 1 2 Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that Plaintiff’s motion to answer (ECF No. 18) is denied. Plaintiff is advised that judgment has been entered against him and this case is closed. 3 4 5 6 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: November 19, 2021 /s/ UNITED STATES MAGISTRATE JUDGE 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
