IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 16, 2011
MORRIS MESTER, PLAINTIFF,
MILLER AND REED, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
On April 4, 2011, this court issued findings and recommendations recommending that plaintiff's March 28, 2011 motion for preliminary injunction be denied because plaintiff was challenging medical treatment at Pleasant Valley State Prison ("PVSP") in Coalinga, California, and the instant action is proceeding on allegations of retaliation in connection with plaintiff's prison record while he was housed at the California Medical Facility that occurred in 2009 and before. Plaintiff has subsequently filed multiple motions for injunctive relief concerning his medical treatment at PVSP. The record reflects plaintiff suffers from myriad medical problems.
Defendants in the instant action have received an extension of time in which to oppose plaintiff's request to stay this action in light of plaintiff's wrist injury. Defendants will be directed to respond to plaintiff's claims that he is not receiving any medical attention at the present time, and that he will suffer imminent harm if not granted relief.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that on or before May 25, 2011, defendants shall respond to plaintiff's claims concerning current medical care contained in plaintiff's May 2, 2011, May 5, 2011, and May 9, 2011 motions for injunctive relief, as well as plaintiff's allegation that he will likely suffer imminent harm if not granted relief.
