IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 20, 2011
ANDRE CRAVER, PLAINTIFF,
J. HASTY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel, with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On June 6, 2011, plaintiff consented to the jurisdiction of the undersigned.
Pursuant to this court's screening of plaintiff's original complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(a), the court found that the complaint may state cognizable claims against defendants Hasty and Rayner, but did not state a claim against defendant Hubbard. (Dkt. No. 6.) The court gave plaintiff the option of proceeding on his original complaint or filing an amended complaint that added a cognizable claim against defendant Smith. Plaintiff chose to proceed on his original complaint against defendants Hasty and Rayner, effectively choosing to terminate this action against defendant Hubbard.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that defendant Hubbard is dismissed from this action.
