IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 31, 2010
MARVIN GLENN HOLLIS, PLAINTIFF,
A. GORBY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff is a California prisoner proceeding pro se with an action for violation of civil rights under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On November 24, 2009, the court indicated that it would order service of process on defendant "Tovar" without indicating whether the court was referring to defendant Tovar, Jr. or defendant Tovar, Sr. The court will order service of process on both defendants Tovar, Jr. and Sr. Plaintiff has already provided the documents necessary for service on Tovar, Sr. Plaintiff will now be ordered to provide the documents for service on defendant Tovar, Jr.
Plaintiff asks that the court reconsider the decision not to order service of process on defendant Clark. A court may reconsider a ruling under either Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 59(e) or 60(b). See Sch. Dist. Number. 1J, Multnomah County v. ACandS, Inc., 5 F.3d 1255, 1262 (9th Cir. 1993). "Reconsideration is appropriate if the . . . court (1) is presented with newly discovered evidence, (2) committed clear error or the initial decision was manifestly unjust, or (3) if there is an intervening change in controlling law." Id. at 1263. Plaintiff has not shown good cause for reconsideration of the decision not to order service of process on defendant Clark. Therefore, plaintiff's motion for reconsideration will be denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court shall send plaintiff a USM-285 form, an instruction sheet and a copy of the complaint filed June 11, 2009.
2. Within thirty days from the date of this order, plaintiff shall complete the attached Notice of Submission of Documents and submit the following documents to the court:
a. The completed Notice of Submission of Documents;
b. One completed USM-285 form for defendant Tovar, Jr.; and
d. Two copies of the endorsed complaint filed June 11, 2009.
3. Plaintiff's request that the court reconsider the decision not to order service of process on defendant Clark (#14) is denied.
NOTICE OF SUBMISSION OF DOCUMENTS
Plaintiff hereby submits the following documents in compliance with the court's order filed
completed USM-285 forms
copies of the Complaint
