No. 407 United States District Court Northern District of California Defendants. 12 13 14 On August 31, 2010, the court entered a permanent injunction in this case which provided 15 in part that the CDCR was "hereby immediately and permanently ordered to permit Plaintiff to 16 participate in the CDCR's Jewish Kosher Meal Program on the same terms and conditions as 17 kosher-observant Jewish inmates and without regard to the fact that Plaintiff is not a kosher- 18 observant Jew." (Doc. 316, 19:10-13.) The court "retain[ed] jurisdiction of this action for all 19 purposes, including without limitation, all proceedings involving the interpretation, enforcement, 20 or amendment of this Order and Permanent Injunction." (Doc. 316, 19, 18-20.) 21 On December 12, 2016, the court received a letter from Plaintiff in which he claimed that 22 officials at California Men's Colony were failing to provide him with his kosher diet. (Doc. 407.) 23 On December 20, 2016, Counsel for Defendants filed a response to Plaintiff's letter, stating that on 24 December 14, 2016, she contacted the litigation coordinator at California Men’s Colony and 25 confirmed receipt of this court’s order entering a permanent injunction.
