Olajide v. Brown et al
ORDER signed by Magistrate Judge Kendall J. Newman on 10/24/2017 DENYING 2 Plaintiff's motion to utilize the electronic filing system (ECF) filed by Ronald Olajide. (Reader, L)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
No. 2:17-cv-02168-TLN-KJN (PS)
BROWN, et al.,
Plaintiff, who proceeds pro se, has requested permission to utilize the court’s electronic
filing system. (ECF No. 2.) Local Rule 133 provides that “[a]ny person appearing pro se may
not utilize electronic filing except with the permission of the assigned Judge or Magistrate Judge.
. . . All pro se parties shall file and serve paper documents as required by applicable Federal Rules
of Civil or Criminal Procedure or by these Rules.” E.D. Cal. L.R. 133(b)(2). Here, plaintiff’s
request does not set forth a compelling reason why the court should deviate from the Local Rules
and its standard practice of disallowing the use of electronic filing by pro se litigants.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Plaintiff’s motion to utilize the electronic filing system (ECF No. 2) is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
