IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 28, 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. 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. Defendant was ordered to provide a statement regarding this situation and timely filed a declaration (Doc. 92).
Apparently, SCMJ now requires an inmates exact location to guarantee that an inmate receive legal mail.*fn1 The court, nor does it appear the inmates, were notified of this. It would also appear that other SCMJ inmates with matters in federal court may not be receiving their legal mail.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court resend Docs. 87, 88, 89, 90, 91 and 92 to plaintiff at the new address.
