IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT

FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA

ARONDO AUSTIN,

Plaintiff,

v.

J. CERMENO, et al.,

No. C 12-05187 YGR (PR)
ORDER GRANTING PLAINTIFF A
FOURTH EXTENSION OF TIME TO
FILE AMENDED COMPLAINT

/

Defendants.

Plaintiff, a state prisoner, filed the instant pro se prisoner complaint under 42 U.S.C. § 1983.

The Court has dismissed Plaintiff's complaint with leave to amend. In Orders dated June 24, 2013,
July 12, 2013, and September 9, 2013, the Court granted Plaintiff's three requests for an extension of
time to file his amended complaint.

Before the Court is Plaintiff's motion entitled, "Motion Asking For a Stay or Freeze

Plaintiff's Case Due to Plaintiff['s] Mental Health and Not Able to Contact the Courts Per
[Department of State Hospitals ("DSH")] & CTC Rules and Policys [sic] [of] No Writing Materials."
(Docket No. 17.) Since filing that motion, Plaintiff has now informed the Court that he has been
released from DSH as of November 21, 2013. Therefore, the Court construes the pending motion to
stay as moot and instead finds that Plaintiff now moves for an implied fourth request for an
extension of time to file his amended complaint.

Good cause appearing, the Court DENIES as moot Plaintiff's "Motion Asking For a Stay or

Freeze Plaintiff's Case Due to Plaintiff['s] Mental Health and Not Able to Contact the Courts Per
[Department of State Hospitals ("DSH")] & CTC Rules and Policys [sic] [of] No Writing Materials."
(Docket No. 17.) However, the Court finds that Plaintiff should be granted another extension of
time to file his amended complaint. Plaintiff shall file his amended complaint on or by January 20,
2014.
