IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 24, 2010
LAWRENCE BIRKS, PLAINTIFF,
ROBERT SANTOS, DEFENDANT.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with an action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is plaintiff's "motion for standard of review."
In plaintiff's lengthy motion, he lays out what are purportedly standards of review for various federal and state laws. It is not clear what the purpose of plaintiff's motion is or that he is entitled to any of the relief he seeks. Accordingly, the court must deny plaintiff's motion.
In addition, the court reminds plaintiff that he must file an amended complaint that complies with this court's previous orders as well as the requirements of the Civil Rights Act, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Local Rules of Court in order to proceed with this action. In the interest of justice, the court will grant plaintiff a final thirty days to file an amended complaint. Failure to comply with the court's order will result in a recommendation for dismissal of this action.*fn1
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's motion for standard of review (Doc. No. 28) is denied;
2. Plaintiff is granted a final thirty days from the date of service of this order to file an amended complaint that complies with this court's previous orders as well as the requirements of the Civil Rights Act, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Local Rules of Court; the amended complaint must bear the docket number assigned to this case and must be labeled "Amended Complaint"; failure to file an amended complaint in accordance with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice; and
3. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff the court's form for filing a civil rights action.
