Here's what the judge thought about Ryan's application...
And the good judge had a few more words for Ryan...The Honorable Otis D. Wright, II wrote:The Court is in receipt of Plaintiff’s Ex Parte Application, seeking to postpone the Court’s deadline to file a motion for default judgment, or in the alternative, seeking leave to file a motion for injunctive relief.
Upon review of Plaintiff’s Application, the Court finds no good reason to extend the deadline to file a motion for default judgment, which is due by September 18, 2012. If Plaintiff desires to join additional defendants, he must do so by amending his Complaint. If he requires subpoenas to ISPs and Internet services companies to determine the identities of the Doe Defendants, he must do so by filing a discovery motion before the Magistrate Judge. Regardless of what Plaintiff decides to do, Doe Defendants must be named and served within 120 days of the filing of the complaint, or the case may be dismissed.
The Honorable Otis D. Wright, II wrote:The fact that Plaintiff stands in pro se does not require the Court to extend deadlines or otherwise grant any leniency. If Plaintiff has any doubt concerning law or procedure, or has difficulty filing papers on time, he should consult an attorney. If Plaintiff cannot afford an attorney, the Court advises Plaintiff that a Federal Pro Se Clinic is located in the United States Courthouse at 312 N. Spring Street, Room 525, Fifth Floor, Los Angeles, California 90012. The clinic is open for appointments on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 9:30 a.m. The Federal Pro Se Clinic offers free, on-site information and guidance to individuals who are representing themselves in federal civil actions. Plaintiff is encouraged to visit the clinic for advice concerning his case.
