IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
July 10, 2012
LUIS VALENZUELA RODRIGUEZ, PLAINTIFF,
JAMES TILTON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is plaintiff's June 6, 2012, motion to access his legal materials and his June 18, 2012, motion to compel, which is essentially the same as his motion to access his legal materials. Plaintiff has submitted numerous filings regarding the same issues of the instant filings, regarding access to the law library, his legal materials and non defendant guards preventing him from litigating his various cases. The court has already issued three orders (Doc. 63, 67, 105) regarding these issues.
Plaintiff has been transferred to a new prison and states he is not being provided access to his legal materials for the instant case and his other cases and different guards are now retaliating against him. As with his past motions plaintiff has again failed to describe why he needs access to all of his legal materials, what legal work is currently pending and how not accessing his legal materials has prevented him from litigating this case. Instead, plaintiff just generally states he is being denied access to his legal materials which is preventing him from litigating this case. After reviewing plaintiff's exhibits it appears he is demanding access to his 27 boxes of legal materials as he has a settlement conference in another case. As plaintiff has not provided specific details and it does not appear to concern this case, the motion are denied.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff's motions (Docs. 119, 120) are denied.
