IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 21, 2011
MADY CHAN, PLAINTIFF,
COUNTY OF SACRAMENTO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On October 13 and 18, 2011, court orders sent to plaintiff at Sacramento County Main Jail (SCMJ) were returned to the court as undeliverable. One order that plaintiff did not receive set a hearing before the District Judge on November 3, 2011, and set October 20, 2011, as a deadline to file briefing.
The court understands that plaintiff is still incarcerated at SCMJ, there are no security holds preventing him from receiving mail, and it appears the court orders were properly addressed and properly listed plaintiff's locator number. Yet, plaintiff is not receiving his legal mail. By Wednesday, October 26, 2011, defendants shall provide a statement to the court describing either why plaintiff is not receiving his mail or resolving what ever issue was impeding the delivery of the mail.*fn1
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that by Wednesday, October 26, 2011, defendants shall provide a statement to the court describing either why plaintiff is not receiving his mail or resolving whatever issue was impeding the delivery of the mail DATED: October 21, 2011
