UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 19, 2012
MICHAEL CONTRERAS AKA LOFOFORA EVA CONTRERAZ,
"MICHAEL CONTRERAS" AKA LOFOFORA EVA CONTRERAZ JARED SHARON, ET AL.,
ORDER DIRECTING THE CLERK OF THE COURT TO CORRECT PLAINTIFF'S NAME IN COURT FILE AND ON CM/ECF TO: Docs. 1, 4
On September 22, 2011, Plaintiff Michael Contreras ("Plaintiff"),
a prisoner proceeding pro se, filed this civil rights action pursuant
to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, 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. *fn1 On Plaintiff's complaint, he listed
his name as "Lofofora Eva Contreraz" with 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.
On September 9, 2011, Plaintiff also filed Lofofora Eva
Contreraz v. D. Ibarra , 1:11-cv-01523-LJO-GBC (E.D. Cal.)
(alleging defendants initiated a conspiracy to falsely charge
Plaintiff with attacking another inmate with a weapon). See
Compl. at 5, Doc. 1. In that case, Plaintiff also lists 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.
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.
