Gary v. Hawthron

UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


April 18, 2007

REGINALD GARY, PLAINTIFF,
v.
HAWTHRON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Hayes, Judge

ORDER RE: MOTION FOR SECTION 998 COMPROMISE OFFER

On April 16, 2007, Plaintiff filed a document titled "Motion for Section 998 Compromise Offer to Defendants." (Doc. # 36). After reviewing the document in its entirety, the Court concludes that the "motion" does not seek or request affirmative relief from the Court. Accordingly, the Court construes the document as a "Notice" rather than a "Motion." (Doc. # 36).

On pages 8-10 of the notice, Plaintiff poses a series of questions to the Court, e.g. "[d]oes a second section 998 offer from me revoke an earlier such offer?" (Doc. # 36 at 8). After reviewing the questions, the Court concludes that they constitute improper requests for legal advice. As the Court cannot give legal advice, the Court will not address the questions. See In re Best, No. C 01-2851 SI (pr), 2001 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 12825, *2 (N.D. Cal. Aug. 17, 2001).

IT IS SO ORDERED.
