DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Defendant. / ORDER RE APPLICATION FOR TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER No. C 08-04652 WHA IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA United States District Court 11 For the Northern District of California 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 On October 8, 2008, Richard Jennings, acting pro se, filed an ex parte application for temporary restraining order and motion for preliminary injunction enjoining defendant from harassing plaintiff. The matter was assigned to Judge Claudia Wilken, who entered an order denying the application more than one month ago (Dkt. No. 8). Thereafter, plaintiff filed a motion to have the case reassigned, and the matter was transferred to the undersigned. It is unclear why plaintiff requested to have the already decided application reassigned, but after reviewing the filings in this matter, it is apparent that Judge Wilken's order ruled upon, and disposed of, plaintiff's application. As Judge Wilken's order noted, no complaint has been filed or served. This order also notes that plaintiff has previously filed complaints raising similar accusations which were dismissed sua sponte for being "so attenuated and unsubstantial as to be absolutely devoid of merit" (see, e.g., 08-2932, Dkt. No. 10). The matter is therefore closed. IT IS SO ORDERED.
