UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT WESTERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
April 15, 2010
RAYMOND CIMINO, PLAINTIFF,
MARK GLAZE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: David G. Larimer United States District Judge
DECISION AND ORDER
By letter dated April 6, 2010, and filed April 13, 2010 (Dkt. #71), plaintiff requests that the Court grant him copies of the trial transcript, at court expense, in this civil action so that he may use portions as part of collateral proceedings that he apparently intends to bring in New York State Court as part of a challenge to his criminal conviction there for which he is presently serving a lengthy sentence.
The motion is denied. The Court declines to order free transcripts for use in state court proceedings which are unrelated to the federal action.*fn1
IT IS SO ORDERED.
Rochester, New York
