Lam v. United States
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 7/26/2017 DENYING 5 Motion to Disqualify Judge. (Henshaw, R)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
TANH HUU LAM,
No. 2:17-cv-1295 KJN P
Plaintiff is a state prisoner, proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis. 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, he speculates that the undersigned is biased against
plaintiff. The court does not find disqualification is appropriate in this matter. Thus, IT IS
HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff’s motion (ECF No. 5) is denied.
