IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 21, 2013
JOSEPH B. MATTHEWS, PLAINTIFF,
LAHEY, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. Senior United States District Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed this civil rights action seeking relief under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. The matter was referred to a United States Magistrate Judge pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1)(B) and Local Rule 302.
On December 20, 2012, the undersigned adopted the October 23, 2012 findings and recommendations, and granted Dr. Basi's motion for summary judgment. (Dkt. No. 104.) In addition, plaintiff was informed that he was not provided with contemporaneous notice of the requirements for opposing a motion for summary judgment with the filing of the November 1, 2010 motion for summary judgment by defendants Lahey, Tan, and Traquina. (Id. at 2.) Plaintiff was informed of those requirements, and provided an additional thirty days in which to file a supplemental opposition to the November 1, 2010 motion for summary judgment.
On January 18, 2013, plaintiff filed objections to findings and recommendations. (Dkt. No. 105.) However, these objections address the October 23, 2012 findings and recommendations on defendant Basi's motion for summary judgment, which this court has already adopted. Indeed, with few exceptions,*fn1 these objections are virtually identical to plaintiff's November 16, 2012 objections, which the undersigned considered prior to adopting the October 23, 2012 findings and recommendations.*fn2
Plaintiff has not filed a supplemental opposition to the November 1, 2010 motion for summary judgment. Therefore, as plaintiff was informed in the December 20, 2012 order, the September 6, 2011 ruling on the November 1, 2010 motion for summary judgment stands. (Dkt. No. 73.) Because all defendants have now been granted summary judgment, judgment should be entered for defendants. (Dkt. Nos. 73, 104.)
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court is directed to enter judgment in favor of the defendants.
