UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 5, 2010
LEONARD FARLEY, PLAINTIFF,
DR. HAROLD TATE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael J. Seng United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER VACATING ECF No. 44 AND DIRECTING DEFENDANT TATE TO ANSW ER PLAINTIFF'S AMENDED COMPLAINT BY AUGUST 25, 2010
Plaintiff Leonard Farley ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.
After the Ninth Circuit held that Plaintiff had stated a claim against Defendant Tate, overruling this Court's dismissal of such claim, the Court ordered Plaintiff to complete and return a USM-285 form for the purpose of serving Plaintiff's Amended Complaint on Defendant Tate. Because Defendant Tate has already been served with a copy of Plaintiff's Amended Complaint, such order was unnecessary. Accordingly, the July 15, 2010 Order Directing Plaintiff to Submit Service Documents [ECF No. 44] is VACATED.
Although the Ninth Circuit issued its mandate on July 13, 2010, Defendant Tate has not yet answered Plaintiff's Amended Complaint. Accordingly, Defendant Tate shall answer or otherwise respond to Plaintiff's Amended Complaint not later than August 25, 2010.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
