IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 16, 2012
NANCY MULLEN, PLAINTIFF,
OFFICE OF PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
This action is before the undersigned pursuant to Eastern District of California Local Rule 302(c)(21). See 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). On March 14, 2012, plaintiff filed a copy of letters she sent to defense counsel and to a third party seeking discovery documents. Dckt. Nos. 25, 26. Plaintiff has also previously filed letters she sent to defense counsel in connection with this case. See, e.g., Dckt. Nos. 10, 16, 21.
Discovery requests and responses "shall not be filed unless and until there is a proceeding in which the [discovery] or proof of service is at issue. When required in a proceeding, only that part of the [discovery request and response] that is in issue shall be filed." E.D. Cal. L.R. 250.2-250.4; Fed. R. Civ. P. 26(a)(1). Nor shall plaintiff file copies of correspondence she has sent to defense counsel unless the correspondence relates to an issue or dispute properly before the court.
Accordingly, plaintiff is informed that docket numbers 10, 16, 21, 25, and 26 will be disregarded, and plaintiff is directed to forego filing such documents in the future.
