UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 12, 2010
DUANE JOHNSON, PLAINTIFF,
E. ROBINSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Raymond C. Fisher United States Circuit Judge Sitting by Designation
1. Plaintiff's motion for leave to amend the complaint, filed January 11, 2010, is DENIED. The case shall proceed in compliance with plaintiff's May 6, 2009 motion to proceed on a single claim and this court's May 13, 2009 order to that effect.
2. Plaintiff's letter filed with this court on February 18, 2010, is construed as a motion to compel production of documents and DENIED as untimely. The discovery and scheduling order entered October 1, 2009 required any motion to compel discovery to be filed by January 18, 2010 and plaintiff has failed to establish good cause why that scheduling order should be modified. See Fed. R. Civ. Proc. 16(b)(4).
3. Plaintiff's motion for an extension of time to file an opposition to defendant's motion for summary judgment, filed March 3, 2010, is GRANTED IN PART.
