UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 15, 2013
JOSHUA J. CANTU, PLAINTIFF,
M. GARCIA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO COMPEL WITHOUT PREJUDICE (Document 72)
Plaintiff Joshua J. Cantu ("Plaintiff") is a prisoner in the custody of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ("CDCR"). Plaintiff is proceeding pro se in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. He filed a First Amended Complaint on July 26, 2010, and the Court found cognizable Eighth Amendment claims against Defendant M. Garcia and three Doe Defendants. Defendant Garcia filed an answer on December 20, 2011.
By separate order, the deadline to amend the pleadings and conduct discovery has been extended to April 15, 2013. Defendant has been ordered to respond to outstanding discovery.
On January 15, 2013, Plaintiff filed a motion to compel responses to a second set of Requests for Production served on October 14, 2012. According to the motion, Defendant responded to the requests on November 9, 2012. Defendant did not oppose the motion.
The Court is unable to rule on the motion, however. Plaintiff did not include Defendant's responses to the discovery and the responses have not been filed previously. Although he states that Exhibits A and B are attached to his motion, no documents are attached. Without an opportunity to review the responses, the Court cannot rule on the motion.
Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion to compel is DENIED WITHOUT PREJUDICE.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
