The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER STRIKING UNSIGNED FILING AND REQUIRING PLAINTIFF TO FILE RESPONSE TO MOTION TO DISMISS WITHIN THIRTY DAYS (Doc. 27)
Plaintiff Richard Jackson, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on June 23, 2010. On October 26, 2011, Defendants Meza, Niino, and Palombo filed a motion to dismiss. Fed. R. Civ. P. 12. On November 28, 2011, Plaintiff filed what he entitled a motion to amend but what appears to be a response to the motion to dismiss. However, Plaintiff neglected to sign the filing and the Court cannot consider unsigned filings. Fed. R. Civ. P. 11(a); Local Rule 131.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's filing is HEREBY ORDERED STRICKEN from the record. Plaintiff has thirty (30) days from the date of service of this order within which to file a response to Defendants' motion to dismiss.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
