UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
March 6, 2013
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Sandra M. Snyder United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER DENYING PLAINTIFF'S MOTION FOR PRELIMINARY INJUNCTIVE RELIEF (Doc. 3)
Plaintiff, Isabel Tubach ("Plaintiff"), is a state prisoner who is currently proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis in this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Plaintiff filed the Complaint in this action on April 23, 2012. (Doc. 1.) On that same date, she filed a motion for temporary restraining order which is currently before the Court. (Doc. 3.)
18 U.S.C. § 3626(a)(1)(A) provides in relevant part:
[p]rospective relief in any civil action with respect to prison conditions shall extend no further than necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right of a particular plaintiff or plaintiffs. The court shall not grant or approve any prospective relief unless the court finds that such relief is narrowly drawn, extends no further than necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right, and is the least intrusive means necessary to correct the violation of the Federal right.
In her motion, Plaintiff rambles on regarding many of the same situations complained of in her pleading. However, the only statement Plaintiff makes as to the relief she seeks is that "Plaintiff in this civil action, move [sic] in this court to ask for a T.R.O. I am in inminent [sic] danger of death. I need the court to grant me this T.R.O. to save my life." (Doc. 3, pg. 1.) Such generalities are simply not narrowly drawn to satisfy the requirements for issuing a temporary restraining order under Section 3626. *fn1
Accordingly, Plaintiff's motion for temporary restraining order, filed April 23, 2012 (Doc. 3), is HEREBY DENIED.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
