1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 JOSEPH P. CUVIELLO, 12 13 14 No. 2:16-cv-2584-KJM-KJN PS Plaintiff, v. ORDER CITY OF VALLEJO, et al., 15 16 Defendants. 17 18 On May 12, 2017, plaintiff, who proceeds without counsel, filed a stipulated request to 19 allow plaintiff to utilize the court’s electronic filing system. (ECF No. 30.) Local Rule 133 20 provides that “[a]ny person appearing pro se may not utilize electronic filing except with the 21 permission of the assigned Judge or Magistrate Judge…All pro se parties shall file and serve 22 paper documents as required by applicable Federal Rules of Civil or Criminal Procedure or by 23 these Rules.” E.D. Cal. L.R. 133(b)(2). Here, plaintiff’s stipulated request does not set forth a 24 compelling reason why the court should deviate from the Local Rules and its standard practice of 25 disallowing the use of electronic filing by pro se litigants. 26 27 Therefore, the stipulated request (ECF No. 30) is DENIED. Dated: May 16, 2017 28 1
