UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 19, 2012
MICHAEL CONTRERAS AKA (PC) LOFOFORA EVA CONTRERAZ,
D. IBARRA, ET AL.,
ORDER DIRECTING THE CLERK OF THE COURT TO CORRECT PLAINTIFF'S NAME IN COURT FILE AND ON CM/ECF TO: "MICHAEL CONTRERAS" aka LOFOFORA EVA CONTRERAZ Docs. 1, 12
On September 9, 2011, Plaintiff Michael Contreras ("Plaintiff"), a
prisoner proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights action pursuant to
42 U.S.C. § 1983, alleging defendants initiated a conspiracy to
falsely charge Plaintiff with attacking another inmate with a
weapon. See Compl. at 5, Doc. 1. *fn1
On Plaintiff's complaint, he listed his name as "Lofofora
Eva Contreraz" with CDC number C-45857. Id. at 1.
On October 17, 2011, Plaintiff filed a motion to proceed in forma
pauperis and attached his trust account statement, listing his
incarcerated name, Michael Contreras. Doc. 12.
On September 22, 2011, Plaintiff also filed Lofofora Eva
Contreraz v. Jared Sharon, Jewish Chaplain at SATF - Corcoran State
Prison , 1:11-cv-01607-LJO-GBC (E.D. Cal.) (alleging denial
of Kosher meals because Plaintiff cannot convert to Judaism while in
prison and Plaintiff cannot be Jewish and transsexual). See
Compl. at 5, 8, Doc. 1. In that case, Plaintiff also lists
CDC number C-45857. Id. at 1. On September 30,
2011, Plaintiff filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis and
attached his trust account statement, listing his incarcerated name,
Michael Contreras. Doc. 4.
A review of Plaintiff's filing history demonstrates that on July 25, 2011, Plaintiff filed a prior case in this district, also listing his name as "Lofofora Eva Contreraz" with CDC number C-45857. See Lofofora Eva Contreraz v. Director of CDCR , 1:11-cv-01222-LJO-GSA (Plaintiff alleges gender dysphoria, gender identity disorder, and that Plaintiff is undergoing female hormone therapy and anti-androgen therapy related to transsexual diagnosis). In that prior case, the Court notes that the United States Postal Service has returned documents mailed by the Court in that case as undeliverable. See id.
Further review of Plaintiff's filing history demonstrates that he has used at least twelve (12) different aliases to file lawsuits, i.e., "Michael Contreras" aka Al-Mu'min Jihad-Contreras aka Al-Mu'min Jihad Contreras aka Eva Lofofora Contreras aka Jihad Contreras aka Lofofora Contreras aka Lofofora Eva Contreraz aka Lofofora Eva Contreras aka Lopofora Contreras aka Michael Hernandez Contreras aka Michael Contreraz aka Quetzal Contreras. *fn2
Therefore, the Court cannot have any communication with Plaintiff in this case under his alias, and the Court shall direct the case changed to his incarcerated name and his alias.
Accordingly, the Clerk of the Court is directed to correct Plaintiff's name in the Court file and on CM/ECF to: "Michael Contreras" aka Lofofora Eva Contreraz.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
