Plaintiff is advised that he should submit a request to the Clerk's Office indicating his case name and number, the documents he wishes to be returned, and the date on which those documents were filed. In addition, Plaintiff must enclose a large, self-addressed envelope with sufficient postage. The Court cannot provide mailing service for a party, even for an indigenous plaintiff proceeding in forma pauperis. In future, Plaintiff is cautioned to retain copies of all documents filed and/or provided in discovery.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
