IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 22, 2010
THOMAS CLINTON, PLAINTIFF,
CALIFORNIA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a former state prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is Plaintiff's "Motion to Stay" (Doc. 417).
In his motion, Plaintiff is requesting additional time to respond to a dispositive motion. However, the court notes that no dispositive motion is currently pending. The deadline for filing such a motion has not yet passed. If a dispositive motion is filed, and Plaintiff finds he needs additional time to respond, he may submit his request at that time. If a reasonable request is submitted, the court will certainly consider such a request. However, as no motion is currently pending, Plaintiff's motion for additional time to respond thereto will be denied. If no dispositive motion is filed by the deadline, the court will issue a further scheduling order setting a schedule in which this case will proceed to trial.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion to stay (Doc. 417) is denied.
