17 ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR SANCTIONS

Plaintiff filed a complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging that several State of California Park Rangers violated his civil rights in a series of incidents. Three motions are 19 currently before the court: Plaintiff's motion for leave to amend, Defendants' motion for judgment 20 on the pleadings, and Defendants' motion for sanctions. This Order deals only with the motion for 21 sanctions. The Court addresses Defendants' remaining two motions in a concurrently-filed Order 22 granting Plaintiff's motion for leave to amend and denying as moot Defendants' motion for 23 judgment on the pleadings. Pursuant to Civil Local Rule 7-1(b), the Court deems Defendants' 24 motion for sanctions appropriate for resolution without oral argument. For the reasons discussed 25 below, Defendants' motion for sanctions is DENIED.
