IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 4, 2010
DEON SHIRLEY, PLAINTIFF,
J. TUGGLE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is Defendants' motion for a modification of the scheduling order (Doc. 58).
Defendants filed a motion to dismiss, concurrent with the motion for modifying the scheduling order, based on Plaintiff's failure to keep Defendants and the court apprised of a current address. Due to Plaintiff's failure to advise Defendants of his current address, Defendants have been unable to schedule his deposition. Pursuant to the current scheduling order, discovery closes November 5, 2010. Defendants argue that until such time as Plaintiff responds to their motion or a court order, and informs them of his current address, they will be unable to complete their discovery.
Good cause appearing therefor, Defendants' motion (Doc. 52) is granted. The dates currently set in the scheduling order are vacated. If necessary, the court will reset the deadlines after the motion to dismiss is resolved.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
