UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:12-cv-1505 TLN KJN P
M. McDONALD, et al.,
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed this civil rights action seeking relief
under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to
28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On September 3, 2013, the magistrate judge filed findings and recommendations herein
which were served on plaintiff and which contained notice to plaintiff that any objections to the
findings and recommendations were to be filed within fourteen days. Plaintiff filed objections to
the findings and recommendations.
It appears that plaintiff may have misunderstood the order and findings and
recommendations, because plaintiff states that he agrees with the court’s decision to dismiss the
First and Fourteenth Amendment claims, but objects to the court’s conclusions concerning
plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment claims. (ECF No. 44 at 1-2.) However, the magistrate judge found
plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment and state law claims were cognizable and directed plaintiff to
complete and return the forms for service of process on defendants. Thus, in order for these
claims to proceed, plaintiff must complete and return the forms provided with the September 3,
2013 order. The undersigned will provide plaintiff an extension of time in which to comply.
Nevertheless, in accordance with the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(C) and Local
Rule 304, this court has conducted a 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
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The findings and recommendations filed September 3, 2013, are adopted in full;
2. Plaintiff’s First and Fourteenth Amendment claims are dismissed;
3. This action proceeds on plaintiff’s Eighth Amendment and state law claims; and
4. Within thirty days from the date of this order, plaintiff shall complete the Notice of
Submission of Documents and submit the documents provided with the September 3, 2013 order.
Plaintiff is cautioned that failure to comply with this order will result in the dismissal of this
Dated: November 19, 2013
