In No. CIV S-09-2092 GGH P, plaintiff filed another complaint involving this incident which he later voluntarily dismissed. In No. CIV S-10-2696 LKK KJN P, plaintiff filed a complaint just a few weeks after the same complaint was dismissed in No. CIV S-09-0939 JAM GGH P, and while plaintiff was appealing to the Ninth Circuit. Plaintiff later voluntarily dismissed case No. CIV S-10-2696 LKK KJN P.
On June 10, 2011, plaintiff filed the instant complaint containing the same allegations. Plaintiff has not included any new information regarding exhaustion of this claim.*fn2
