THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 17, 2010
OSCAR ARREOLA, PLAINTIFF,
G. DUDLEY ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: J. Michael Seabright United States District Judge
ORDER IN RESPONSE TO PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR AN ORDER REQUIRING WARDEN BOBBY PHILLIPS TO GIVE PLAINTIFF ACCESS TO THE LAW LIBRARY
On September 16, 2010, pro se prisoner Plaintiff Oscar Arreola ("Plaintiff") filed a motion requesting an order requiring Warden Bobby Phillips to give Plaintiff access to the law library. Plaintiff asserts that he has been given no access to the law library and therefore cannot comply with the court's August 13, 2010 Amended Rule 16 Scheduling Order.
The court confirms that this action is in the midst of motions practice -- the deadline for filing motions for summary judgment was September 17, 2010, and Defendants filed a Motion for Summary Judgment on this date. Plaintiff's Opposition is due October 22, 2010. The court therefore requests that the prison in which Plaintiff is currently housed, i.e., the Tallahatchie Correctional Facility, 415 U.S. Highway 49 North, Tutwiler, Mississippi 38963, provide Plaintiff access to the library for the purpose of responding to Defendants' Motion for Summary Judgment.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
