The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding in forma pauperis and without counsel, with a civil rights complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On March 18, 2011, plaintiff filed a motion seeking the court's intervention in obtaining mental health records from the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ("CDCR") Department of Mental Health. Plaintiff contends that despite his best efforts he has been unable to obtain the mental health records from plaintiff's inpatient care at the CDCR Department of Mental Health from July 22, 2008, through September 18, 2008. Defendants have not filed an opposition or other response to plaintiff's motion.
Good cause appearing, the court will direct the Clerk of Court to issue a subpoena duces tecum to plaintiff for completion and return to the court. Plaintiff shall forthwith complete the subpoena duces tecum form, providing for production of the documents to plaintiff at his present institution. Upon receipt of the completed subpoena duces tecum form, the court will direct the U.S. Marshal to serve the subpoena duces tecum on the CDCR Department of Mental Health at the address provided by plaintiff on the subpoena form. Plaintiff shall limit his request for production of documents to the mental health records from his inpatient care from July 22, 2008, through September 18, 2008.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's March 18, 2011 motion (dkt. no. 43) is partially granted;
