JASON CHRIST, Petitioner,
HON. JOHN LARSON, MISSOULA FOURTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT COURT JUDGE, Respondent.
Petitioner Jason Christ (Christ) has filed an Emergency Petition for Access to Legal Materials in the above matter. He attaches to his petition the inmate rules of the Missoula County Detention Facility, where he is presently incarcerated on the contempt citation in the underlying matter, which provide in part: "Do not expect direct access to legal material without court approval (county/federal)."
A request for access to legal materials does not constitute an extraordinary writ or otherwise qualify for the exercise of original jurisdiction by this Court. M. R. App. P. 14. Any issues relating to access to legal material should, therefore, be addressed to the District Court. Therefore,
IT IS ORDERED that Christ's Emergency Petition for Access to Legal Materials is DENIED.
The Clerk is directed to provide a copy hereof to counsel of record, to Hon. John Larson, and to Jason Christ.
