Vincente Solomon v. J. Negrete

July 27, 2011

VINCENTE SOLOMON, PLAINTIFF,
v.
J. NEGRETE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER

Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a motion seeking a court order for law library access and copies. In his motion, plaintiff alleges that court orders are necessary before he can use the law library or obtain adequate supplies and copies. While plaintiff claims to have four active cases for which he claims to be having trouble obtaining adequate paper supplies and copies, this court is concerned only with the one which comes within its jurisdiction, i.e., the instant case.

On June 21, 2011, plaintiff was ordered to return certain forms and to provide fourteen copies of the amended complaint so that the court could direct service of process upon thirteen defendants.*fn1 Although plaintiff's failure to provide a declaration when seeking a court order has previously been noted,*fn2 plaintiff continues not to submit a declaration in support of his request. Plaintiff attaches exhibits which, while unauthenticated, do indicate that he has submitted a number of requests to obtain copies and envelopes for his various active cases. One of the exhibits is particularly telling, both as to the obstacle plaintiff is facing to proceeding at this point in this action, and as to the burden plaintiff apparently imposes upon prison officials with his apparently frequently-made requests for copies and legal mailing material.
