Seymour (“Plaintiff”) is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma 19 pauperis in this civil rights action. This case is currently proceeding on Plaintiff’s Eighth 20 Amendment conditions of confinement claim against defendants Doe 1, DeGough, and Doe 2 21 based on allegations that the water at Wasco State Prison is contaminated, and that Defendants 22 have not appropriately responded to the issue. (ECF Nos. 14 & 18). 23 In this case, the Court authorized service on the Doe defendants because “Plaintiff 24 provided specific and unique titles for the Doe defendants, as well as relevant dates on which they 25 held those titles.” (ECF No. 19, p.1 n.1). The Doe defendants have now been identified. Doe 1 26 is H. Shirley and Doe 2 is J. Cronjager. Both H. Shirley and J. Cronjager have waived service of 27 process. (ECF No. 25). Their responsive pleading is due on or before July 1, 2022. (ECF No. 28 35). 1 1 Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that: 2 1. H. Shirley is substituted into this action in place of Doe 1. References to Doe 1 3 will be treated as if they referred to H. Shirley. 4 2. J. Cronjager is substituted into this action in place of Doe 2.
