UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 30, 2010
G. WILDEY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER RE STATUS REPORT
Plaintiff Benny Ford ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff filed this action on June 7, 2010. (Doc. 1.) On December 10, 2010, Plaintiff filed a status report requesting status of his complaint and the full case number. (Doc. 8.)
The Court is required to screen complaints brought by prisoners seeking relief against a governmental entity or officer or employee of a governmental entity. 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(a). The Court screens complaints in the order in which they are filed and strives to avoid delays whenever possible. However, there are hundreds of prisoner civil rights cases presently pending before the Court, and delays are inevitable despite the Court's best efforts. Due to the heavy caseload, Plaintiff's complaint is still awaiting screening. The Court is aware of the pendency of this case and will screen Plaintiff's complaint in due course.
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk's Office will send a copy of this order to Plaintiff.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
