ORDER SETTING STATUS CONFERENCE FOR MAY 31, 2017 AT 2:30 PM AND DIRECTING CLERK OF THE COURT TO SERVE A COPY OF THIS ORDER ON PLAINTIFF ANDRES SANTANA
STANLEY A. BOONE, Magistrate Judge.
This action was filed on February 19, 2008, by Plaintiff Oscar Cruz proceeding pro se. (ECF No. 1.) After the death of Plaintiff Cruz, his success in interest obtained representation. (ECF Nos. 27, 33.) On November 9, 2009, Plaintiffs Andres Santana and Maria del Rosario Corona (collectively "Plaintiffs") filed a first amended complaint alleging that Defendants Chris Chrones, S. Frauenheim, Kelly Harrington, and Mike Knowles (collectively "Defendants") deprived Oscar Cruz and Andres Santana of adequate outdoor exercise. (ECF No. 62.)
On December 9, 2009, Defendants filed a motion to dismiss. (ECF No. 65.) On January 20, 2010, the Court dismissed Plaintiffs' equal protection and procedural due process claims and denied dismissal of Plaintiffs' Eighth Amendment claim. (ECF No. 73.) On June 15, 2012, Defendants filed a motion for summary judgment as to the only remaining claim, the Eighth Amendment claim. (ECF No. 142.) On September 14, 2012, the Court granted Defendants' motion for summary judgment. (ECF No. 188.)
On October 23, 2012, Plaintiff Santana filed a notice of appeal from the order dismissing his due process and equal protection claims and the order on the summary judgment motion on the Eighth Amendment claim. (ECF No. 190.) On April 19, 2017, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeal affirmed the district court's grant of summary judgment on Plaintiff Santana's Eighth Amendment claim on the basis of qualified immunity, affirmed the district court's dismissal of Plaintiff Santana's due process claim, and reversed the district court's dismissal of Plaintiff Santana's equal protection claim. (ECF No. 212.) The mandate issued on May 11, 2017. (ECF No. 213.)
Following the decision on appeal, this action is proceeding on Plaintiff Santana's equal protection claim against Defendants Chris Chrones, S. Frauenheim, Kelly Harrington, and Mike Knowles for monetary damages. Although Plaintiff filed his appeal pro se, counsel has never filed a notice terminating their representation in this matter. The record currently reflects that Plaintiff is represented by Aman Pradhan of Gordon-Creed, Kelley, Holl & Sugerman and Warren E. George Jr. of the Prison Law Office. Therefore, the Court shall set a status conference to address the status of Plaintiff's representation and the scheduling of this matter upon remand.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
IT IS SO ORDERED.
