IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 1, 2012
UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE FOREST SERVICE, ET AL.,
ORDER DENYING MOTION FOR A JURY TRIAL
[Document # 28]
On May 16, 2012, Plaintiff filed a motion for a jury trial. Plaintiff states he would "like to know why there is not going to be a jury trial."
This action alleges the United States committed various torts. Pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 2402, any trial concerning tort allegations against the United States must be tried by the Court and not a jury.
Thus, Plaintiff's motion for a trial by jury is DENIED. IT IS SO ORDERED.
