1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 LAITH FATHI SIKTA, 12 13 14 15 No. 2:21-cv-0238-EFB P Plaintiff, v. ORDER COUNTY OF SACRAMENTO, et al., Defendants. 16 17 Plaintiff is a county jail inmate proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 18 U.S.C. § 1983. The operative complaint is nearly identical to a complaint used to commence a 19 separate action. See Sitka v. County of Sacramento, No. 2:21-cv-0236-DMC (E.D. Cal.). The 20 only difference is that the complaint filed in this action appears to include a page missing from 21 the original complaint. See ECF No. 1 at 2. This action is therefore redundant. 22 Accordingly, IT IS ORDERED that the Clerk is directed to file the instant complaint (ECF 23 No. 1) in the case of Sitka v. County of Sacramento, No. 2:21-cv-0236-DMC (E.D. Cal.) as an 24 amended complaint, along with plaintiff’s in forma pauperis application (ECF No. 2). The Clerk 25 is also directed to CLOSE case number 2:21-cv-0238-EFB P. 26 DATED: February 18, 2021. 27 28
