United States District Court, E.D. California
ORDER AND FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
CAROLYN K. DELANEY, Magistrate Judge.
Plaintiff is a federal prisoner proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis with an action filed pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Before the court for screening is plaintiff's first amended complaint. (ECF No. 16.)
The amended complaint states a cognizable claim under 42 U.S.C. § 1983 and 28 U.S.C. § 1915A(b) as to defendant Leonardo Giron, MD. If the allegations of the amended complaint are proven, plaintiff has a reasonable opportunity to prevail on the merits of this action. As to the remaining defendants, the amended complaint fails to cure the deficiencies of the original complaint, as discussed in the previous screening order. (ECF No. 15.)

d. Two copies of the endorsed amended complaint filed January 26, 2015.

IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that all defendants except Giron be dismissed from this action.
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1). Within fourteen days after being served with these findings and recommendations, plaintiff may file written objections with the court.
