IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 28, 2011
NOEL KEITH WATKINS, PLAINTIFF,
KATHLEEN DICKINSON, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel. On May 23, 2011, the court opened this case upon plaintiff's filing a motion for an extension of forty-five days "in which to prepare and file his case with the U.S. District Court Eastern District." Motion at 2 (Docket No. 1). Plaintiff states no facts or legal bases on which this court could construe his motion as a complaint for relief under any federal statute. Furthermore, the court cannot authorize an extension of time for a putative litigant to initiate an as-yet unfiled action. Because plaintiff states no basis on which he could obtain relief from this court, this action will be dismissed without prejudice.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action is dismissed without prejudice, and this case is closed.
