On December 21, 2006, the undersigned issued findings and recommendations, recommending dismissal of this action because plaintiff failed to exhaust administrative remedies. On February 14, 2007, the assigned district judge adopted the findings and recommendations in full. Plaintiff appealed, and on July 9, 2009, the United States Court of Appeals affirmed in part, vacated in part, and remanded the case back to this court. The Ninth Circuit determined that, for purposes of exhaustion, plaintiff was not required to continue pursuing his administrative appeal regarding a vegetarian meal card because he had received all of the available remedies through the administrative appeals process. Accordingly, good cause appearing, the court will direct defendants to file an answer to plaintiff's original complaint within thirty days of the date of this order. 1 ORDER vs. CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, et al.
