Bell v. Oakland Unified School District
ORDER PROHIBITING FURTHER FILINGS IN CLOSED CASE. Signed by Magistrate Judge Jacqueline Scott Corley on 6/22/2017. (Attachments: # 1 Certificate of Service)(ahm, COURT STAFF) (Filed on 6/22/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
SAMUEL ORSON BELL,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
ORDER PROHIBITING FURTHER
FILINGS IN CLOSED CASE
OAKLAND UNIFIED SCHOOL
Plaintiff Samuel Orson Bell, proceeding pro se, brought this civil action against the Oakland
Unified School District. The Court granted his application to proceed in forma pauperis, reviewed his
complaint under 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and dismissed it for failure to state a claim upon which relief could
be granted. (Dkt. No. 7.) Rather than amend his complaint, Plaintiff filed a notice of voluntary
dismissal on August 10, 2016. (Dkt. No. 8.) Since the case was terminated, Plaintiff has submitted
two additional documents in this action; although they are largely indecipherable, they do not appear to
request reopening of the action or relate to the issues raised in his initial complaint. (Dkt. Nos. 9 &
10.) Because this action is closed, Plaintiff should no longer be making submissions in this action. To
the extent that Plaintiff seeks to plead a new claim, he must file a new action.
The Clerk should not accept any further filings in this closed action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: June 22, 2017
