IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
September 17, 2012
CLINTON WAGNER, PLAINTIFF,
MOSS POSNER, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a state prisoner, proceeding in forma pauperis and without counsel, with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On July 6, 2012, the court granted in part and denied in part defendants' summary judgment motion.
Recently the Ninth Circuit issued an order requiring that all prisoners proceeding without counsel must be provided contemporaneous notice of certain requirements for opposing a motion for summary judgment. Woods v. Carey, 684 F.3d 934 (9th Cir. 2012 ).
Defendants' summary judgment motion contained notice to plaintiff of the requirements for opposing a motion for summary judgment. (Dkt. No. 76.) Defendants' notice substantially complied with the requirements set forth in Woods. For that reason, no further briefing order regarding defendants' summary judgment motion will be issued.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
