UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 19, 2012
DAVID WINETT, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Barbara A. McAuliffe United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER REQUIRING DEFENDANTS TO FILE AN OPPOSITION OR STATEMENT OF NON OPPOSITION TO PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR VOLUNTARY DISMISSAL (ECF No. 147)
TEN DAY DEADLINE
Plaintiff Eric Martin ("Plaintiff") is a state prisoner proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Following the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit order affirming the grant of Defendants' motion for summary judgment, but finding that Plaintiff's Eighth Amendment claims against Defendant Winnett and Due Process claims against Defendants Johnson, Stainer, and Winnett had been improperly dismissed at the screening stage, this action is proceeding on the limited claims revived by the Ninth Circuit. On November 22, 2011, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment. After being granted three extensions of time to file an opposition, Plaintiff filed a notice of voluntary dismissal, requesting the action be dismissed without prejudice.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that, within ten days from the date of service of this order, Defendants shall file an opposition or statement of non-opposition to Plaintiff's notice of voluntary dismissal.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
