United States District Court, D. Nevada

September 18, 2017

GREGORY WEST ENTSMINGER, Plaintiff,
v.
ROMEO ARANAS, Defendants.

          ORDER

         I. DISCUSSION

         On August 23, 2017, this Court issued a screening order which granted Plaintiff leave to amend some of his claims. (ECF No. 11 at 23). The Court stated that if Plaintiff chose not to file a second amended complaint, the case would immediately proceed on Count I-denial of access to the courts (Jane/John Does when Plaintiff learns their identities); Count II (Dr. Vanhorn, Keast, Jacobs, Missy, Dr. Yup, McBroom, Moyle, Navarro, Walsh, Dr. Aranas, and Austin); Count III (Dr. Johns, Nurse Kathy, Melissa Mitchell, Keast, Baca, and Aranas); Count IV (Dr. Remsen, Ilene Sanborn, Keast, Lois Elliot, Dr. Vanhorn, Missy (dental assistant), Perry, Linda Grankowski, Aranas, Jacobs, Dr. Yup, Dr. Peterson, Jennifer (dental assistant), Summer (dental assistant), and Dr. Swope); Count V (Sandoval, Miller, Masto, Laxalt, Cegavske, Clinger, Wilden, Aranas, Bannister, Jacobs, Keast, Nurse Sunshine, Reynolds, Haycock, and Cox); Count VI-equal protection and sex offenders (Missy (dental assistant), Ilene Sanborne, Nurse Sunshine, Jenifer (dental assistant), Perry, Keast, Jacobs, Dr. Yup, Dave (clinic supervisor), Laura (dental assistant), and Alisha (dental assistant)); Count VII-due process and gold fixtures (Dr. Remsen, Keast, Aranas, and Cox); Count VII-due process and inmate account (Missy (dental assistant), Sanborne, Lara (dental assistant), Dave (clinic supervisor), Melissa Mitchell, Candice (clinic supervisor), Jacobs, Keast, Nurse Sunshine, Reynolds, Haycock, Cox, and Aranas); and Count VIII (Dr. Yup, Dr. Swope, Dr. Vanhorn, Dr. Peterson, Dr. Remsen, Cox, Perry, Snider, Jacobs, Keast, Missy (dental assistant), Sanborne, Lara (dental assistant), Dave (clinic supervisor), Melissa Mitchell, Candice (clinic supervisor), Nurse Sunshine, Reynolds, Haycock, Sandoval, Miller, Masto, Aranas, and Bannister). (Id. at 23-24).

         On September 14, 2017, Plaintiff filed a motion to extend time to file a second amended complaint. (ECF No. 14). Specifically, Plaintiff seeks a 30-day extension of time to file a second amended complaint to add new allegations about events that took place in May 2017 and after. (Id. at 1-16). The Court grants the motion for extension of time in part. The Court will grant Plaintiff an extension of time to file a second amended complaint to address any deficiencies addressed by the screening order on the first amended complaint (ECF No. 11, 12). However, the Court directs Plaintiff to file a new case for the allegations and claims involving the May 2017 events. Plaintiff may file a new case by submitting an application to proceed in forma pauperis and a complaint to the Clerk of the Court.

         The Court reiterates that, if Plaintiff chooses to file a second amended complaint, the Court will screen the second amended complaint in a separate screening order. However, the Court will not issue a screening order on the second amended complaint for several months. If Plaintiff chooses not to file a second amended complaint, this case will proceed immediately on the above-referenced claims.

         II. CONCLUSION

         For the foregoing reasons, IT IS ORDERED that the motion for extension of time (ECF No. 14) is granted in part. Plaintiff is granted an extension of time to file a second amended complaint with respect to the claims addressed in his amended complaint and the screening order. Plaintiff is denied an extension of time to file a second amended complaint to add new allegations and claims for events that took place in May 2017 and after.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, if Plaintiff chooses to file a second amended complaint curing the deficiencies of his amended complaint, as outlined in the screening order, Plaintiff must file the second amended complaint on or before Friday, October 20, 2017.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court will send to Plaintiff the approved form for filing a § 1983 complaint, instructions for the same, a copy of his motion and declaration (ECF No. 14), an approved form application to proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner, and the document entitled information and instructions for filing an in forma pauperis application. Plaintiff may initiate a new case by filing an application to proceed in forma pauperis and a complaint to the Clerk of the Court.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, if Plaintiff chooses to file a second amended complaint, the Court will screen the second amended complaint in a separate screening order. The screening process will take several months.

         IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, if Plaintiff chooses not to file a second amended complaint, the case will immediately proceed on Count I-denial of access to the courts (Jane/John Does when Plaintiff learns their identities); Count II (Dr. Vanhorn, Keast, Jacobs, Missy, Dr. Yup, McBroom, Moyle, Navarro, Walsh, Dr. Aranas, and Austin); Count III (Dr. Johns, Nurse Kathy, Melissa Mitchell, Keast, Baca, and Aranas); Count IV (Dr. Remsen, Ilene Sanborn, Keast, Lois Elliot, Dr. Vanhorn, Missy (dental assistant), Perry, Linda Grankowski, Aranas, Jacobs, Dr. Yup, Dr. Peterson, Jennifer (dental assistant), Summer (dental assistant), and Dr. Swope); Count V (Sandoval, Miller, Masto, Laxalt, Cegavske, Clinger, Wilden, Aranas, Bannister, Jacobs, Keast, Nurse Sunshine, Reynolds, Haycock, and Cox); Count VI-equal protection and sex offenders (Missy (dental assistant), Ilene Sanborne, Nurse Sunshine, Jenifer (dental assistant), Perry, Keast, Jacobs, Dr. Yup, Dave (clinic supervisor), Laura (dental assistant), and Alisha (dental assistant)); Count VII-due process and gold fixtures (Dr. Remsen, Keast, Aranas, and Cox); Count VII-due process and inmate account (Missy (dental assistant), Sanborne, Lara (dental assistant), Dave (clinic supervisor), Melissa Mitchell, Candice (clinic supervisor), Jacobs, Keast, Nurse Sunshine, Reynolds, Haycock, ...
