Michael Whitfield v. Ellen Greenman

September 27, 2011

MICHAEL WHITFIELD,
PLAINTIFF,
v.
ELLEN GREENMAN, M.D., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER DENYING MOTION (Doc. 5)

Plaintiff Michael Whitfield, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on July 8, 2011. On July 18, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion requesting that the Court refrain from striking the exhibits attached to his complaint.

Plaintiff apparently misunderstands the admonition in the First Informational Order that the Court cannot serve as a repository for evidence, an admonition intended to caution litigants against submitting exhibits in isolation and/or at times where evidence may not properly be considered. It is, however, permissible to attach exhibits to a pleading and incorporate them by reference, as Plaintiff did. Fed. R. Civ. P. 10(c). Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion is unnecessary and it is therefore DENIED.

IT IS SO ORDERED.
