Randall W. Grimes v. Folsom State Prisons Psychiatric Services Units Medical Staff

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


March 25, 2011

RANDALL W. GRIMES, PLAINTIFF,
v.
FOLSOM STATE PRISONS PSYCHIATRIC SERVICES UNITS MEDICAL STAFF, DR. M. BOBBALLA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

ORDER

Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

By order filed February 23, 2011, the court ordered the United States Marshall to serve process on five defendants named in plaintiff's complaint, including Dr. M. Bobballa; Nurse M. Joyce; Chief Psychologist K. Morgan; Warden T. Virga; and Correctional Officer Shearer. On March 3, 2011, plaintiff filed a request for voluntary dismissal of defendants Virga, Morgan and Boballa. Included in that request is a request to add two new defendants to this action. Plaintiff is entitled to amend his complaint once as of right prior to service of a responsive pleading. Plaintiff's request is not, however, accompanied by a motion to amend the complaint or a proposed amended complaint.

Good cause appearing, plaintiff's request to dismiss defendants Virga, Morgan and Boballa will be granted. Plaintiff will be granted a period of thirty days in which to file a proposed amended complaint that omits these three defendants, names any new defendants, and raises all claims on which he seeks to proceed in this action. The court's February 23, 2011 order directing the United States Marshal to serve process in this action will be vacated. The court will screen plaintiff's proposed amended complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A and make such further orders as are appropriate.

In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:

1. Plaintiff's March 3, 2011 request for voluntary dismissal of defendants Virga, Morgan and Boballa is granted;

2. Defendants Virga, Morgan and Boballa are dismissed from this action pursuant to Fed. R. Civ. P. 41(a).

3. The court's February 23, 2011 order directing the United States Marshal to serve process on defendants in this action is vacated.

4. Plaintiff's complaint is dismissed.

5. Within thirty days from the date of this order, plaintiff shall complete the attached Notice of Amendment and submit the following documents to the court:

a. The completed Notice of Amendment; and

b. An original and one copy of the Amended Complaint.

Plaintiff's amended complaint shall comply with the requirements of the Civil Rights Act, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, and the Local Rules of Practice; the amended complaint must bear the docket number assigned this case and must be labeled "Amended Complaint"; failure to file an amended complaint in accordance with this order may result in the dismissal of this action.

6. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on the United States Marshal.

7. The Clerk of the Court is directed to serve a copy of this order on Supervising Deputy Attorney General Monica N. Anderson, 1300 I Street, Suite 125, P.O. Box 944255, Sacramento, CA 94244-2550
