UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 26, 2013
L. D. ZAMORA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Dennis L. Beck United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTIONS FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTION ECF Nos. 27, 28, 29
Plaintiff Roberto Herrera ("Plaintiff") is a prisoner in the custody of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation ("CDCR"). Plaintiff is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On November 15, 2012, November 19, 2012, and November 26, 2012, Plaintiff filed motions for preliminary injunction requesting that the pain management committee policy be ended. ECF Nos. 27, 28, 29.
A plaintiff seeking a preliminary injunction must establish that he is likely to succeed on the merits, that he is likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief, that the balance of equities tips in his favor, and that an injunction is in the public interest." Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, Inc., 555 U.S. 7, 20 (2008) (citations omitted). The purpose of preliminary injunctive relief is to preserve the status quo or to prevent irreparable injury pending the resolution of the underlying claim. Sierra On-line, Inc. v. Phoenix Software, Inc., 739 F.2d 1415, 1422 (9th Cir. 1984).
By separate order, the Court dismissed Plaintiff's complaint for
failure to state a claim. ECF
No. 19. As of the date of this order, Plaintiff has not filed an
amended complaint. Thus, Plaintiff has not demonstrated that he is
likely to succeed on the merits of his claim. Based on the foregoing,
it is HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff's motions, filed November 15,
2012, November 19, 2012, and November 26, 2012, are denied.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
