1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 ALONZO JOSEPH, 12 13 14 15 No. 2:15-cv-0332 JAM KJN P Plaintiff, v. ORDER DR. R. HAWKINS,, Defendant. 16 17 Plaintiff is a state prisoner, proceeding pro se. This action proceeds on plaintiff’s claims 18 that Dr. Hawkins was deliberately indifferent to plaintiff’s serious medical needs while plaintiff 19 was housed at Mule Creek State Prison in 2014. On December 27, 2016, while housed at High 20 Desert State Prison, plaintiff filed a motion asking the court to “re-issue a housing order due to 21 enmery [sic] restrictions in California State Prison, Sacramento.” (ECF No. 28.) Plaintiff asked 22 to be housed in the Sacramento County Jail due to alleged enemy restrictions. Plaintiff provided 23 a list of non-confidential offender separation alerts, but did not identify the inmate on the list. 24 Plaintiff’s motion is deficient in several respects. First, plaintiff’s motion is not supported 25 with sufficient facts. Second, this court has not previously issued a housing order concerning any 26 enemy restrictions for plaintiff. Plaintiff did not provide a copy of any prior housing order for the 27 court’s review. Third, plaintiff’s central file should contain a list of plaintiff’s known enemies. 28 1 1 Plaintiff did not indicate whether the enemy he is concerned about is listed on plaintiff’s list of 2 known enemies. Finally, in this action, no defendants are located at High Desert State Prison, 3 where plaintiff was housed when he submitted the motion, or at California State Prison, 4 Sacramento, where it appears he contends he has enemy restrictions. This court is unable to issue 5 an order against individuals who are not parties to a suit pending before it. See Zenith Radio 6 Corp. v. Hazeltine Research, Inc., 395 U.S. 100, 112 (1969). 7 For all of the above reasons, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion (ECF No. 8 28) is denied without prejudice. 9 Dated: January 6, 2017 10 11 12 /jose0332.den 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
