Nava v. Grounds et al
ORDER OF DISMISSAL (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 3/4/2013)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
United States District Court
For the Northern District of California
No. C 12-4714 SI (pr)
ORDER OF DISMISSAL
R.T.C. GROUNDS, et al.,
Jesus Rodriguez filed this pro se prisoner's civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
The court reviewed his amended complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915A and dismissed it with leave
to amend. He then filed a second amended complaint, which the court also has reviewed under
§ 1915A. The second amended complaint does not cure the problems the court discussed in the
order of dismissal with leave to amend. The Free Exercise Clause and Equal Protection Clause
claims in the second amended complaint fail for the same reasons explained at pages 9-11 in the
order of dismissal with leave to amend.
This action is dismissed for failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted as
to the claims under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Having resolved the § 1983 claims, only state law claims
remain, and the court declines to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over them. See 28 U.S.C.
§ 1367(c)(3). The state law claims are dismissed without prejudice to plaintiff pursuing them
in state court. The clerk shall close the file.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
