CIV. NO. 15-00081 SOM/KSC
ORDER DENYING TEMPORARY
ORDER DENYING TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER
The court dismissed this action without prejudice on
March 30, 2015, finding that pro se Plaintiff Francis Grandinetti
may not proceed without prepayment of the filing fees because he
has three strikes under 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g) and alleged no facts
showing that he was in imminent danger of serious physical injury
at the time he filed this action.
See Doc. No. 4.1
Before the court is Grandinetti’s “Separate T.R.O
Application, Rule 65 and § 1915(g)” motion.
Doc. No. 6.
Motion is a copy of Grandinetti’s “Medical Request” of March 4,
2015, stating that he was moved to special housing as a mentally
ill inmate and seeking a mental health review by a physician.
Grandinetti alleged that prison officials recorded him
shredding his mattress, charged him with possessing a knife and
threatening a guard, and placed him on suicide watch. See
Compl., Doc. No. 1.
It is dated approximately two weeks before Grandinetti
filed this action.
Grandinetti’s Complaint, filed on March 17,
2015, makes clear that he was put on suicide watch and medically
reviewed after he submitted this Medical Request.
Doc. No. 1.
Moreover, Grandinetti has made similar claims in
several other recent actions and submitted similar Medical
Requests as evidence.
See, e.g., Grandinetti v. Hawaii
Judiciary, Civ. No. 15-00089 JMS/RLP (D. Haw. Apr. 8, 2014);
Grandinetti v. Corr. Corp. of America, Civ. No. 15-00083 JMS/RLP
(D. Haw. Apr. 2, 2014); Grandinetti v. Olsen, Civ. No. 15-00082
LEK/RLP (D. Haw. Mar. 30, 2014).
These actions were all
dismissed without prejudice pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(g).
Grandinetti’s request for a temporary restraining order
First, this action is closed, and Plaintiff has not
submitted the $400 filing fee required to reopen it, or to open a
Second, Grandinetti’s statements and exhibits in
this action and others show that he has received a mental health
evaluation and is housed in mental health special housing.
Grandinetti’s Motion is moot.
Third, Grandinetti cannot succeed on the merits of his
Motion, will not suffer irreparable harm in the absence of
injunctive relief, and cannot show that the equities tip in his
favor or that an injunction is in the public interest.
Offshore, Inc. v. Greenpeace, Inc., 709 F.3d 1281, 1289 (9th Cir.
Finally, Grandinetti’s Medical Request does not
convince this court to reconsider its decision that he was not in
imminent danger of serious physical injury when he filed this
action or this Motion.
See Andrews v. Cervantes, 493 F.3d 1047,
1053 (9th Cir. 2007).
The Motion is DENIED.
Grandinetti is NOTIFIED that the
court will take no further action on motions or documents he
files in this action, other than a notice of appeal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DATED: Honolulu, Hawaii, April 17, 2015.
