Krzysztof Wolinski v. M. Colvin et al
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINE 21 . (Illston, Susan) (Filed on 10/10/2017)
UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
ORDER EXTENDING DEADLINE
M. COLVIN, et al.,
United States District Court
Northern District of California
Case No. 17-cv-00583-SI
Re: Dkt. No. 21
Plaintiff has filed a motion for the court to order the warden at the R. J. Donovan Facility
to provide plaintiff access to an adequate law library. Docket No. 21. Absent unusual and
compelling circumstances not present here, federal courts generally are discouraged from
interfering with day-to-day prison administration decisions. See Turner v. Safley, 482 U.S. 78, 84-
85 (1987). Plaintiff’s motion therefore is DENIED. Docket No. 21. If Plaintiff wishes to
complain about the law library at the R. J. Donovan Facility, he may file a civil rights complaint
under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The proper venue for such an action would be the U.S. District Court for
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.
