1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 AARON McCOY, 8 9 United States District Court For the Northern District of California 10 11 No. C 09-4768 SI (pr) Plaintiff, ORDER v. MIKE EVANS, warden; et al., Defendants. / 12 13 Plaintiff filed a "request for case clarification/disposition" in which he asked the court to 14 inform him of the final disposition of Furnace v. Evans, 2009 WL 2511969. (Docket # 51.) The 15 request is GRANTED and the information will be provided this time; however, no further such 16 requests will be entertained because the court does not do factual or legal research for litigants 17 and does not have sufficient time to serve as fact-checker for the prison rumor mill. The docket 18 sheet for Furnace v. Evans, No. C 06-4229 MMC, shows that an appeal is pending from the 19 order granting summary judgment in favor of defendants. That means that plaintiff was 20 extremely misinformed when told that a prisoner had a multi-million dollar victory in that case. 21 The court also notes that plaintiff misrepresented what the court had earlier determined 22 about his case. Plaintiff stated that the "court has even ruled that most of his claims had merit 23 and should not be dismissed." (Docket # 51, p. 2.) The order to which he referred actually said 24 something quite different: "The denial of the motion to dismiss says nothing about the merits of 25 plaintiff's claims and only concerns the sufficiency of the pleading." (Docket # 45, p. 20.) 26 Plaintiff is cautioned to read the court's orders more carefully. 27 28 IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: December 16, 2011 _______________________ SUSAN ILLSTON United States District Judge
