ROBERT SAUNDERS, PLAINTIFF,
THE COUNTY OF SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA; THE LAW OFFICES OF ELAINE VAN BEVEREN; ELAINE VAN BEVEREN, INDIVIDUALLY, DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
A status (pretrial scheduling) conference in this action is set to take place on October 20, 2011.*fn1 (See Minute Order, Aug. 31, 2011, Dkt. No. 24; Order and Findings and Recommendations, July 13, 2011, at 20, Dkt. No. 22.) On October 4, 2011, plaintiff filed his Second Amended Complaint (Dkt. No. 27) pursuant to the court's September 6, 2011 order (Dkt. No. 25). Because the undersigned is required to screen plaintiff's Second Amended Complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2) (see Order and Findings and Recommendations, July 13, 2011, at 20), the status (pretrial scheduling) conference is continued to allow time for such screening, the possible service of the Second Amended Complaint on defendant County of Sacramento if appropriate, and the possible filing of pleadings-based motions pursuant to Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 12.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the status (pretrial scheduling) conference presently set for October 20, 2011, is continued to December 8, 2011, at 10:00 a.m., in Courtroom 25.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
