UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
3 DAVID L. REED,
6 NORTH LAS VEGAS POLICE
DEPARTMENT, et al.,
Case No.: 2:18-cv-01847-APG-DJA
Order Denying Motions for Temporary
Restraining Order and Preliminary
[ECF Nos. 56, 57]
Plaintiff David Reed moves for injunctive relief in the form of requiring High Desert
10 State Prison to return his legal work, allow him to shower, move him to a different cell, transfer
11 him to Clark County Detention Center, or release him. ECF Nos. 56, 57. I deny the motion
12 because the requested relief is directed at matters unrelated to the claims alleged in the
13 complaint, which involve alleged constitutional violations during Reed’s arrest in 2017. ECF No.
14 29. A court cannot issue an injunction that “deals with a matter lying wholly outside the issues
15 in the suit.” De Beers Consol. Mines v. United States, 325 U.S. 212, 220 (1945).
I THEREFORE ORDER that plaintiff David Reed’s motion for temporary restraining
17 order (ECF No. 56) and motion for preliminary injunction (ECF No. 57) are DENIED.
DATED this 6th day of January, 2021.
ANDREW P. GORDON
