Fratus v. Klein et al
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 4/18/2017 DENYING plaintiff's 6 motion for disqualification. (Yin, K)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:17-cv-0535 KJM KJN P
SGT. KLEIN, et al.,
Plaintiff is a state prisoner, proceeding without counsel. Plaintiff seeks relief pursuant to
42 U.S.C. § 1983, and has moved for disqualification of the undersigned. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C.
§ 455, a magistrate judge shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality
might reasonably be questioned or where he has a personal bias or prejudice concerning a party.
In plaintiff’s motion for disqualification, he speculates that the undersigned is biased against
plaintiff. The court does not find disqualification is appropriate in this matter.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s March 31, 2017 motion for
disqualification (ECF No. 6) is denied.
Dated: April 18, 2017
