IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
November 19, 2012
REBIO RONNIE TOWNSEND, PLAINTIFF,
SACRAMENTO COUNTY SHERIFF'S DEPT., ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Carolyn K. Delaney United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff is a civil detainee proceeding pro se. On September 26, 2012, the court dismissed plaintiff's September 6, 2012 complaint with leave to file an amended complaint that states a claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. (Dkt. No. 6.) Plaintiff has not filed an amended complaint, but instead filed a letter on October 18, 2012. (Dkt. No. 7.) The court will disregard this letter as it is not a filing contemplated by the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. However, plaintiff will be granted an extension of time to file an amended complaint that states a claim under § 1983.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that plaintiff is granted an extension of time to file an amended complaint within thirty days from the date of service of this order. Failure to file an amended complaint will result in a recommendation that the action be dismissed.
