July 13, 2012
DAVID P. RUFF, PLAINTIFF,
D. VANLEER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge
Pursuant to the Ninth Circuit's recent decision in Woods v. Carey, No. 09-15548 (9th Cir. July 6, 2012), the court hereby reminds plaintiff of the following requirements for opposing the motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies filed by defendants on September 19, 2011.*fn1 (Dkt. No. 21.)
On April 20, 2012, the court issued findings and a recommendation that defendants' motion to dismiss the complaint for failure to exhaust administrative remedies be granted. (Dkt. No. 30.) On July 9, 2012, plaintiff filed objections to these findings and recommendations. (Dkt. No. 35.)
Pursuant to Wyatt v. Terhune, 315 F.3d 1108, 1120 n.14 (9th Cir. 2003), the court hereby informs plaintiff of the following requirements for opposing a motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative remedies pursuant to Fed.

In addition, plaintiff may rely on written records, but plaintiff must prove that the records are what plaintiff asserts they are. If plaintiff fails to contradict defendant's evidence with admissible evidence, the court may rely on defendant's evidence. In the event both sides submit matters outside of the pleadings, the court may look beyond the pleadings and decide disputed issues of fact. If plaintiff does not file a written opposition to the motion, the court may consider the failure to act as a waiver of opposition to the motion. See L.R. 230(l). If the court grants the motion to dismiss, whether opposed or unopposed, plaintiff's unexhausted claims will be dismissed without prejudice.
Plaintiff now having received the notice required under Woods v. Carey, No. 09-15548 (9th Cir. July 6, 2012), IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff will be provided 21 days to file additional evidentiary materials regarding defendants' motion to dismiss for failure to exhaust administrative ...
