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