UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
DAVID B. DURAN,
OMAR MANDUJO, et al.,
Case No. 15-cv-2745 DMS (WVG)
ORDER (1) ADOPTING
RECOMMENDATION AND (2)
GRANTING MOTION TO
DISMISS FOR FAILURE TO
STATE A CLAIM
[ECF NOS. 91, 104]
On December 7, 2015, Plaintiff David B. Duran, a state prisoner proceeding
pro se and in forma pauperis, filed a civil rights Complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. §
1983. On May 19, 2017, Plaintiff filed his Fourth Amended Complaint (“FAC”).
On June 2, 2017, Defendants Larry Lewis and Jonta Yancy filed a Motion to Dismiss
for Failure to State a Claim. On August 31, 2017, Magistrate Judge William V.
Gallo issued a Report and Recommendation (“R&R”), recommending that the Court
grant the motion. Plaintiff filed objections to the R&R. Defendants did not file a

the Motion to Dismiss for Failure to State a Claim. 1 The Court finds no basis for a
certificate of appealability. The Clerk of Court shall enter judgment accordingly.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Dated: October 11, 2017
The Court notes the claim provision of Cal. Gov. Code § 911.2 is inoperative in an
action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983, and the fact that Plaintiff did not allege
compliance with that provision is irrelevant to his claim under the Civil Rights Act.
See Williams v. Horvath, 16 Cal. 3d 834 (Cal. 1976); Toscano v. Cty. of L.A., 92 Cal.
App. 3d 775, 784 (Cal. Ct. App. 1979). Here, Plaintiff expressly pleads only a claim
under § 1983. To the extent the Magistrate Judge construes the FAC to include a
claim for battery or assault, as he does in section IV(B)(v) Statute of Limitations, the
Court agrees with the Magistrate Judge’s analysis in section IV(B)(iv) California
Government Claims Act.
