Dan VANELLI, Deputy Warden; Samuel A. Lewis, Director,
United States Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit.
Submitted Nov. 18, 1996.*
Decided Nov. 20, 1996.
NOTICE: Ninth Circuit Rule 36-3 provides that dispositions other than opinions or orders designated for publication are not precedential and should not be cited except when relevant under the doctrines of law of the case, res judicata, or collateral estoppel.
Before: PREGERSON, REINHARDT, and T.G. NELSON, Circuit Judges.
Harry Burnsworth, an Arizona state prisoner, appeals pro se the district court's summary judgment in favor of prison officials in his 42 U.S.C. § 1983 action. We have jurisdiction pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1291. We vacate and remand for further proceedings.
Before entering summary judgment, district courts must advise pro se prisoners of the requirements of Fed.R.Civ.P. 56. Klingele v. Eikenberry, 849 F.2d 409, 411-12 (9th Cir.1988). A review of the district court record reveals that the district court failed to give Burnsworth notice of the Rule 56 requirements. Accordingly, we vacate the district court's judgment. See id. On remand, the district court shall inform Burnsworth accordingly.
VACATED and REMANDED.
