UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
DISTRICT OF NEVADA
JOSEPH M. ANDERSON,
THE STATE OF NEVADA, et al.,
MINUTES OF THE COURT
October 12, 2017
PRESENT: THE HONORABLE WILLIAM G. COBB, U.S. MAGISTRATE JUDGE
REPORTER: NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR PLAINTIFF(S): NONE APPEARING
COUNSEL FOR DEFENDANT(S): NONE APPEARING
MINUTE ORDER IN CHAMBERS:
Before the court is Plaintiff’s motion requesting an extension of his copy work limit in the
amount of $25.00 (ECF No. 90). Plaintiff states he needs the extension for the purposes of copying
legal documents, exhibits and pleadings during the discovery stages. (Id. at 1.) Due to the electronic
filing program at the Lovelock Correctional Center, Plaintiff’s need for copies will be substantially
reduced or eliminated with the electronic filing program. Plaintiff will be retaining his original
documents submitted for filing, and a copy will be electronically submitted to opposing counsel and
the court. See Nevada Department of Corrections AR 723. It also preliminarily appears to the court
that the discovery deadline may have expired. (See, ECF No. 92.)
It is the Court’s understanding that copy rates at Nevada Department of Corrections facilities
are generally $.10 per page. Plaintiff has not adequately demonstrated why he requires an additional
250 pages of copy work.
Plaintiff’s motion (ECF No. 90) is GRANTED IN PART. Plaintiff’s copy work limit shall
be increased by $15.00. The Clerk shall send a copy of this order extending copy work to the Chief
of Inmate Services for NDOP (P.O. Box 7011 Carson City, NV 89702) so that the funds can be
properly allocated. Plaintiff should judiciously use additional allowance for copy work.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
DEBRA K. KEMPI, CLERK
