UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 11, 2008
CHRISTOPHER S. RIDER, PLAINTIFF,
GREENE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER STRIKING MOTION FOR WRIT OF MANDATE
Plaintiff Christopher S. Rider ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On February 28, 2008, plaintiff filed a motion for a writ of mandate (Doc. 17). Plaintiff lists five case numbers in the caption, and in his motion, seeks a court order mandating relief from defendants from all five actions.
In the First Informational Order issued by this court on October 5, 2007, plaintiff was expressly advised:
Where plaintiff simultaneously pursues more than one action, he or she must file separate original documents and the appropriate number of copies in each action to which the document pertains. Documents submitted listing more than one case number in the caption will be stricken. (emphasis in original).
Plaintiff's motion for writ of mandate, filed February 28, 2008 is HEREBY STRICKEN. Plaintiff may re-file his motion; however, he must limit his request to the defendants and events giving rise to this particular action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
