IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
May 25, 2012
LAURENCE PALMER, PLAINTIFF,
WARDEN IVES, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is proceeding without counsel and in forma pauperis. Plaintiff consented to proceed before the undersigned for all purposes. See 28 U.S.C. § 636(c).
On April 24, 2012, the court screened plaintiff's amended complaint, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915A, and determined that plaintiff failed to state a cognizable civil rights claim as to any defendant except defendant O'Connor. (Dkt. No. 13.) Plaintiff was granted the option to (a) delay service of process and file a second amended complaint to attempt to state a claim against the other defendants, or (b) proceed with service of process as to only defendant O'Connor. On May 10, 2012, plaintiff submitted the service forms, electing to proceed with service of process on defendant O'Connor. (Dkt. No. 14.) Therefore, plaintiff's claims as to the remaining defendants are dismissed.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that this action shall proceed solely on plaintiff's claims as to defendant O' Connor; the remaining defendants are dismissed.
