James Abel v. Mike Martel

IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA


February 9, 2012

JAMES ABEL, PLAINTIFF,
v.
MIKE MARTEL, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.

The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge

ORDER

Plaintiff has filed a motion asking that the court order that he remain at the prison where he is currently housed until the conclusion of this case. Plaintiff suggests that transfer to another prison could impede his ability to litigate this case. In Meachum v. Fano, 427 U.S. 215 (1976), the United States Supreme Court held that prisoners do not have a constitutional right to be housed at a particular prison within a state's prison system. Therefore, plaintiff's request will be denied. If plaintiff believes he requires extensions of time to comply with court deadlines due to his being transferred, he is free to so request.

Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's January 30, 2012 "motion for injunction . . ." (Dkt. 48) is denied.
