Jenkins et al v. City of Richmond
ORDER RE: 342 LETTER FROM COUNSEL. Signed by Judge Edward M. Chen on 9/19/2011. (emclc2S, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 9/19/2011)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
JAMES JENKINS, et al.,
For the Northern District of California
United States District Court
CITY OF RICHMOND,
No. C-08-3401 EMC
ORDER RE: LETTER FROM COUNSEL
(Docket No. 342)
The Court is in receipt of a letter from Plaintiff Brown’s counsel requesting the Court’s
assistance to secure an evidentiary hearing for Plaintiff Brown, who was allegedly “improperly
demoted from the rank of Captain and suspended effective May 27, 2010.” Docket No. 342 at 1.
The Court has detailed three methods through which it may provide assistance to the parties
in their ongoing disputes regarding investigations. “If any federal plaintiff believes an investigation
is conducted for retaliatory basis, he may (1) seek leave to amend the complaint to add said
allegation(s), and/or (2) move for interim injunction relief, and/or (3) seek to reopen limited
discovery in connection with (1) or (2). Plaintiff, however, must make a substantial showing to
warrant relief.” Order, Docket No. 341, at 3 ¶ 12(f); see also Order, Docket No. 337, at 2. Absent a
formal motion, however, the Court will not intervene.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: September 19, 2011
EDWARD M. CHEN
