IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 8, 2011
ANTHONY AMMONS, PLAINTIFF,
C. BAKEWELL, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with this civil rights action. On December 27, 2010, plaintiff filed a motion for a court order to obtain the attendance of an incarcerated witness. At this time, plaintiff's motion is premature. On January 3, 2011, defendant Bakewell filed a motion for summary judgment. After the court rules on defendant's motion, if necessary the parties will be required to file pretrial statements. At that time, plaintiff may submit a motion making a particularized showing to obtain the attendance of any incarcerated witnesses at trial.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff' December 27, 2010 motion for a court order to obtain the attendance of an incarcerated witness (Doc. No. 27) is denied as premature.
