MARIE PARLANTE, PLAINTIFF,
SAVANNA CAZARES, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
This proceeding was referred to the undersigned by E.D. Cal. L.R. 302(c)(21), pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Plaintiff has paid the filing fee and is proceeding in this action pro se.
On October 13, 2011, plaintiff filed a motion to utilize the court's electronic filing ("ECF") system. (Dkt. No. 2.)

(Id.)
In light of plaintiff's representations, she will be permitted to enroll in the court's ECF system. However, plaintiff is cautioned that the privilege of access to ECF will be terminated if she makes unnecessary voluminous filings or otherwise abuses her ECF access.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's motion for permission to utilize electronic filing (dkt. no. 2) is granted.
2. Plaintiff shall contact the Clerk of Court and take the necessary steps to enroll in the court's ECF system.
