JARMAAL LARONDE SMITH, PLAINTIFF,
LEANN CRONES, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Arthur L. Alarcón United States Circuit Judge Sitting by Designation
On July 24, 2009, Plaintiff filed a request (doc. 71) for a copy of this Court's revised scheduling order of July 2, 2009 (doc. 61). In the request, Plaintiff contends that he has not received Defendants' request to continue the August 4, 2009 trial date (doc. 60) or this Court's revised scheduling order of July 2, 2009 (doc. 61) because, he alleges, the staff at the Substance Abuse Treatment Facility where he is currently housed is tampering with his mail.
