Case No. 16-cv-00770-MEJ
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S
REQUEST FOR DEFAULT JUDGMENT
Re: Dkt. No. 24
DON M. GRIFFITH,
Plaintiff, a California prisoner currently incarcerated at California Medical Facility, filed
this pro se civil rights action under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging that Dr. Griffith was deliberately
indifferent to his serious medical needs. Now pending before the Court is Plaintiff’s request for
entry of default judgment in his favor. Dkt. No. 24. Plaintiff argues that he is entitled to default
judgment because Dr. Griffith has failed to file a dispositive motion by the deadline set forth in the
Court’s December 29, 2016 Order Denying Motion to Dismiss, Denying Motion to Strike and
Setting Briefing Schedule. Plaintiff’s motion is DENIED. Defendant timely filed a dispositive
motion on March 30, 2017. Dkt. No. 23.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: April 17, 2017
