Case 2:21-cv-01482-KJM-DMC Document 18 Filed 09/08/21 Page 1 of 2 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 9 FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 10 11 KIMBERLY OLSON, 12 13 14 15 No. 2:21-CV-1482-KJM-DMC Plaintiff, v. ORDER ROBERT PUCKETT, SR., et al., Defendants. 16 17 Plaintiff, who is proceeding pro se, brings this civil action. The matter is currently 18 set for hearing before the undersigned in Redding, California, on September 14, 2021, at 1:00 19 p.m. for arguments on Plaintiff’s motion for preliminary injunctive relief. Pending before the 20 Court is Defendants’ request for an extension of time. See ECF No. 17. 21 Defendants’ request is denied. Plaintiff’s motion concerns Defendants’ allegedly 22 improper disconnection of her water, leaving Plaintiff, who is disabled, without a reliable source 23 of drinking water and water to protect her residence in the case of fire. As such, the risk of 24 irreparable injury seems high and would only rise with further delay. Moreover, despite 25 Defendants’ representations concerning difficulty obtaining counsel, Defendants have in fact 26 obtained counsel, who has reviewed Plaintiff’s filings. The short amount of time the Court has 27 provided for a response, while arguably some hardship for Defendants, is necessary given the 28 possibility of irreparable injury to Plaintiff which only increases with the passage of time. 1 Case 2:21-cv-01482-KJM-DMC Document 18 Filed 09/08/21 Page 2 of 2 1 Defendants shall be prepared to present to the Court their arguments at the September 14, 2021, 2 hearing, which remains on calendar as scheduled. 3 4 5 The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on Plaintiff by email to: kimberlyrenee@yahoo.com.
