IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 23, 2010
PAUL WINFIELD, PLAINTIFF,
ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On April 1, 2009, plaintiff consented to proceed before the undersigned for all purposes. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(c). On July 7, 2010, plaintiff filed a document in which he seeks to add "Guard Hymen" as a defendant, claiming she committed slander against plaintiff. However, the sole allegation contained in plaintiff's filing is that while plaintiff was allegedly held down and administered psychotropic drugs, Guard Hymen allegedly held a gun on plaintiff from the gun tower. This allegation does not support a claim for slander, and plaintiff has alleged no constitutional violation against Guard Hymen. Accordingly,
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's July 7, 2010 request is denied without prejudice. (Dkt. No. 43.)
