Reyes v. Young et al
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 10/5/2017 VACATING 15 Findings and Recommendations; DENYING as unnecessary 16 Motion for Extension of Time; and GRANTING Plaintiff 30 days from the date of this order to file either an amended complaint or notice he intends to proceed on the potentially colorable claims against defendants Young, Rock, Masser, and Gamboa in the original complaint. (Henshaw, R)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:17-cv-0966 GEB KJN P
A. YOUNG, et al.,
On May 12, 2017, the undersigned issued an order screening plaintiff’s complaint. (ECF
No. 7.) The undersigned found that plaintiff had stated potentially colorable claims for relief
against defendants Young, Rock, Nasser and Gamboa. The undersigned dismissed the claims
against defendants Linde, Austin, Moeckly, Cherry, Rogers and Knipp with leave to amend.
On June 12, 2017, plaintiff filed a motion for an extension of time to file an amended
complaint. (ECF No. 11.) On June 22, 2017, the undersigned granted plaintiff a thirty days
extension of time to file an amended complaint. (EF No. 14.) On July 5, 2017, this order was
returned unserved because plaintiff was “out to medical.” On July 18, 2017, the Clerk of the
Court re-served the June 22, 2017 order on plaintiff.
Thirty days passed from July 18, 2017, and plaintiff did not file an amended complaint or
otherwise respond to the June 22, 2017 order. Accordingly, on September 13, 2017, the
undersigned recommended that this action be dismissed. (ECF No. 15.)
On October 2, 2017, plaintiff filed a motion for an extension of time to file objections to
the findings and recommendations. (ECF No. 16.) In this pleading, plaintiff states that he is
having difficulty obtaining medication for body pain. Plaintiff also alleges that he has been
“waylayed” with medical difficulties.
Because it appears that plaintiff intends to prosecute this action, the findings and
recommendations are vacated. Plaintiff is granted thirty days from the date of this order to file an
amended complaint. In the alternative, plaintiff may opt to proceed with the potentially colorable
claims against defendants Young, Rock, Nasser and Gamboa in the original complaint.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The September 13, 2017 findings and recommendations (ECF No. 15) are vacated;
2. Plaintiff’s October 2, 2017 motion for extension of time (ECF No. 16) is denied as
3. Plaintiff is granted thirty days from the date of this order to file either an amended
complaint or notice that he intends to proceed on the potentially colorable claims against
defendants Young, Rock, Nasser and Gamboa in the original complaint; if plaintiff opts to
proceed on his claims against defendants Young, Rock, Nasser and Gamboa, the court will send
plaintiff the forms necessary to effect service.
Failure to respond to this order will result in a recommendation of dismissal of this action.
