POWELL, et al., 16 17 Defendants. 18 19 Two matters are before the Court. First, Plaintiff has filed a renewed motion for 20 appointment of counsel. Dkt. 221. Second, he moves for an “extension of time,” which the 21 Court liberally construes as a request to continue the outstanding deadlines set forth in its 22 June 24, 2015 Order for Pretrial Preparation. Dkt. 222. Plaintiff claims that appointment 23 of counsel is warranted because he is suffering from a “disability” of “paralyses [to] entire 24 right side of [his] body, [and his] left hand [being] broken . . . .” Dkt. 221 at 1. He claims 25 he “cannot write, open mail or turn pages.” Id. 26 No later than fourteen (14) days from the date of this Order, Defendants shall file a 27 response to Plaintiff’s two pending motions. In support of their response, Defendants shall 28 provide details and documentation regarding Plaintiff’s current medical and housing status. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 Defendants shall also appraise the Court as to the status of their ability to communicate with Plaintiff since he has been transferred to the California Health Care Facility (“CHCF”) in Stockton. Finally, Defendants shall propose to the Court how this action should proceed in light of Plaintiff’s current medical status. The pretrial conference scheduled for January 27, 2016, is VACATED, pending further order of the Court. IT IS SO ORDERED.
