ECF No. 3. Judge Foley directed the plaintiff to file an amended 12 complaint by December 2, 2016. Id. at 3. The plaintiff did not file an amended complaint, and 13 mail sent to him was been returned. ECF Nos. 4, 5. I therefore dismissed the case. ECF No. 6. 14 The plaintiff now moves to reopen the case, stating that he never received the court’s prior 15 orders even though he has not changed his address. ECF No. 8. I grant the motion. On or before 16 May 1, 2017, the plaintiff must file an amended complaint addressing the issues identified in 17 Judge Foley’s prior order. ECF No. 3. Because the plaintiff may not have received a copy of 18 Judge Foley’s order, I will instruct the clerk of court to send a copy along with this order. 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the plaintiff’s motion to reopen the case (ECF No. 8) is GRANTED.
