Thereafter, Scott filed a motion for request of 17 production of documents with this court (ECF No. 21), and he filed a notice of appeal with 18 the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (ECF No. 22). On January 27, 2017, the Ninth Circuit 19 Court of Appeals denied a certificate of appealability (ECF No. 26). In the motion for 20 production of documents, Scott states that he needed respondents to provide copies of 21 certain filings in order to proceed with his appeal. The case is closed, and this court lacks 22 jurisdiction to consider the motion. Moreover, the motion would be moot because the 23 Ninth Circuit denied a certificate of appealability. 24 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that petitioner’s motion for production of 25 documents (ECF No. 21) is DENIED. 26 DATED: 12 June 2017. 27 ROBERT C. JONES UNITED STATES DISTRICT JUDGE 28 1
