UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 29, 2012
CLAUDELL EARL MARTIN,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Michael J. Seng United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO HAVE PLEADINGS SCREENED (ECF No. 17)
On February 1, 2010, Plaintiff Claudell Earl Martin, a state prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (ECF No. 1.)
Before the Court is Plaintiff's February 27, 2012 Motion to Have Pleadings Screened (ECF No. 17.)*fn1 Plaintiff alleges that he filed this action 2 years ago and has not received any notice as to whether Defendants are to be served.
On February 16, 2012, the Court issued its Order Dismissing Plaintiff's Complaint with Leave to Amend. (ECF No. 15.)
Plaintiff's instant Motion appears to duplicate his January 13, 2012 Motion for Status which the Court denied as moot on February 17, 2012 (ECF No. 16.)
The Court will not direct service by the United States Marshal absent a pleading containing cognizable claims for relief against the named Defendants.
Plaintiff's Motion to Have Pleadings Screened is moot.
Accordingly, for the foregoing reasons, it is ORDERED that Plaintiff's Motion to Have Pleadings Screened (Doc. 17), is DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
