Should Plaintiff fail to file an amended complaint, the Court will dismiss Plaintiff's medical care claim and Defendant CDCR from this lawsuit. The Court will also provide forms for service of process of the original complaint on Defendant Archuletta.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff is directed to file an amended complaint within thirty days of the date of service of this order. Should Plaintiff fail to do so, Court will dismiss Plaintiff's medical care claim and Defendant CDCR from this lawsuit.
