UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 30, 2012
M. CAMPS, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR TELEPHONIC CONFERENCE Doc. 46
ORDER GRANTING DEFENDANTS' MOTION TO RESOLUTION OF DEFENDANT'S MOTION TO DISMISS STAY DISCOVERY PENDING Doc. 48
Plaintiff is a prisoner proceeding pro se in a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On December 30, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion for telephonic conference. Doc. 46. However, pro se prisoner cases are not subject to conference requirements of Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(f). Therefore, Plaintiff's motion for telephonic conference is DENIED.
On November 4, 2011, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss. Doc. 35. On January 17, 2012, Defendants filed a motion to stay discovery pending resolution of their motion to dismiss. Doc. 48. Given that resolution of Defendants' motion to dismiss may conclude this action and render any need for discovery unnecessary, Defendants' motion to stay discovery is GRANTED. Discovery is HEREBY ORDERED STAYED pending this Court's ruling on the motion to dismiss.*fn1
Accordingly, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's motion for telephonic conference is DENIED;
2. Defendants' motion to stay discovery is GRANTED; and
3. Discovery is STAYED pending this Court's ruling on the motion to dismiss.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
