IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 9, 2011
ANTHONY R. TURNER, PLAINTIFF,
WARDEN SALINAS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
On January 31, 2011, plaintiff filed a "motion for an order to show cause" requesting that the court order officials at Pelican Bay State Prison ("PBSP") to stop harassing him. No defendants are located at PBSP. This court is unable to issue an order against individuals who are not parties to a suit pending before it. See Zenith Radio Corp. v. Hazeltine Research, Inc., 395 U.S. 100, 112 (1969). For this reason, plaintiff's motion for an order to show cause is denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motion for an order to show cause (Dkt. No. 35) is denied.
