March 10, 2009
MATTHEW B. CRAMER, PLAINTIFF,
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER STRIKING DUPLICATIVE, UNSIGNED MOTION
ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR STAY
Plaintiff Matthew B. Cramer ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil action. On March 4, 2009, Plaintiff filed an "amicus curiae motion" seeking to stay this action. (Doc. 12.) On March 5, 2009, Plaintiff filed an identical but unsigned motion, which shall be stricken from the record. (Doc. 13.)
Plaintiff may not file an amicus curiae brief in his own case, and his attempt to offer information, via an amicus curiae brief, on other pending cases and how they might offer some benefit in the resolution of his own claims is rejected. Plaintiff's motion to stay is also denied. There are no grounds to stay this action. If Plaintiff wishes to voluntarily dismiss this case, he may do so by filing written notice. Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a).
Based on the foregoing, Plaintiff's motion to stay this action is HEREBY DENIED, and Plaintiff's duplicative, unsigned motion is STRICKEN.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
