IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 21, 2009
ERIC W. GREEN, PLAINTIFF,
A. BURKER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Pursuant to the pretrial order issued herewith, the Clerk of the Court will be directed to send plaintiff a subpoena form to complete and return to the court, along with the appropriate witness fees made payable to Clyde Williams. Once the court receives the completed subpoena and witness fees for Mr. Williams, the court will add Mr. Williams' address (contained in docket no. 68) once plaintiff returns the completed subpoena form with the witness fees. Plaintiff is cautioned that failure to comply with this procedure may result in Mr. Williams not being subpoenaed for appearance at trial in this action.
In their pretrial statement, defendants set forth the names of inmate witnesses LaFlora and Ford as follows: LaFlora (T-26579) and Ford (E-41288). However, when the court contacted the inmate locator to obtain addresses to prepare the writs of habeas corpus ad testificandum, the court was informed that the CDC numbers provided by defendants did not match the names provided. Defendants will be directed to provide the court, within ten days, the full names and accurate CDC numbers for inmates T. LaFlora and Ford, along with their present custodial location, so the court may prepare and issue the necessary writs for their attendance at trial.
On March 9, 2009, plaintiff filed a request for four subpoenas. Good cause appearing, the Clerk of the Court will be directed to send plaintiff the subpoenas. Plaintiff is cautioned that he must comply with this court's April 7, 2008 order to accomplish proper service of the subpoenas.*fn1 Any other subpoenas issued for trial appearance by plaintiff must be transmitted directly from plaintiff to the U.S. Marshal as set forth in footnote 1.
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff five subpoenas and a copy of the December 19, 2007 order granting plaintiff in forma pauperis status (docket no. 5);
2. Within ten days from the date of this order, defendants shall provide the court with the full names and accurate CDC numbers for inmate witnesses T. LaFlora and Ford and their present custodial locations;

Once the subpoena has been completed by the court, the court will forward the subpoena and witness fees to the U.S. Marshal for service on Mr. Williams.
