UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 7, 2010
PATRICK O'DELL PLAINTIFF,
INYO COUNTY COMMISSIONER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO SUBMIT STATUS REPORT
Plaintiff Patrick O'Dell ("Plaintiff") is proceeding pro se in this action. When Plaintiff filed his complaint on November 2, 2009, he stated that he was not incarcerated. Pursuant to Court order, Plaintiff submitted an application to proceed in forma pauperis on March 29, 2010. According to the application, Plaintiff is now incarcerated at the Inyo County Jail. He states, however, that he is self-employed and earns $300 per week.
It is therefore unclear whether Plaintiff is incarcerated. While it does not affect the merits of Plaintiff's complaint, whether Plaintiff is incarcerated impacts how the Court handles the action from a procedural standpoint.
Accordingly, Plaintiff is ORDERED to submit a status report within thirty (30) days of the date of this order. Plaintiff must indicate whether he is incarcerated and if he is, for how long.
Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
