1 2 3 4 UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT 5 NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA 6 7 KRZYSZTOF WOLINSKI, Plaintiff, 8 ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINE 9 v. 10 M. COLVIN, et al., 11 United States District Court Northern District of California Case No. 17-cv-00583-SI Re: Dkt. No. 21 Defendants. 12 13 Plaintiff has filed a motion for the court to order the warden at the R. J. Donovan Facility 14 to provide plaintiff access to an adequate law library. Docket No. 21. Absent unusual and 15 compelling circumstances not present here, federal courts generally are discouraged from 16 interfering with day-to-day prison administration decisions. See Turner v. Safley, 482 U.S. 78, 84- 17 85 (1987). Plaintiff’s motion therefore is DENIED. Docket No. 21. If Plaintiff wishes to 18 complain about the law library at the R. J. Donovan Facility, he may file a civil rights complaint 19 under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The proper venue for such an action would be the U.S. District Court for 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 the Southern District of California, as that is the judicial district in which the prison is located. The court sua sponte extends the deadline for plaintiff to file his amended complaint to December 8, 2017. This deadline will not be further extended because, by the time it arrives, plaintiff will have had six months to prepare an amended complaint in which he is only being asked to describe the facts that show his entitlement to relief. IT IS SO ORDERED. Dated: October 10, 2017 ______________________________________ SUSAN ILLSTON United States District Judge
