UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 25, 2012
ANTHONY NGUYEN, PLAINTIFF,
M. D. BITER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sheila K. Oberto United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR LEAVE TO FILE A SUPPLEMENTAL COMPLAINT AND FOR FORM (Doc. 50)
Plaintiff Anthony Nguyen, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 on May 18, 2011. On January 13, 2012, Plaintiff filed a motion seeking leave to file a supplemental complaint and for a supplemental complaint form.
Rule 15(d) provides that "[o]n motion and reasonable notice, the court may, on just terms, permit a party to serve a supplemental pleading setting out any transaction, occurrence, or event that happened after the date of the pleading to be supplemented." Fed. R. Civ. P. 15(d). However, a motion seeking relief from the Court must "state with particularity the grounds for seeking the order." Fed. R. Civ. P. 7(b)(1)(B).
Further, Plaintiff's motion for a supplemental form complaint is also DENIED. The Court does not have a form complaint for supplemental complaints. Plaintiff may either handwrite his supplemental complaint or use the complaint form available at the prison, making any necessary changes to the caption to reflect it is a supplemental complaint.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
The Court will not grant Plaintiff leave to file a supplemental complaint in the absence of any showing by Plaintiff regarding the grounds for supplementation and in the absence of the submission of a proposed supplemental complaint. Plaintiff's motion is HEREBY DENIED on those grounds.
