ORDER RE: APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
Pursuant to Civil LR 3-10, the application of plaintiffs) in this action to proceed in forma pauperis is before the court for review. The court has considered the application and has carefully reviewed the complaint pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2).

  [ ] GRANTED and the clerk shall issue summons. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(d), that the U.S. Marshal for the Northern District of California serve, without prepayment of fees, a copy of the summons, complaint and any amendments or attachments, scheduling orders, plaintiffs affidavit and this order upon defendant(s). You must provide the Marshal with the names and current addresses of each of the defendants. It is your responsibility to ensure that the Marshal has sufficient information to identify and effect service upon each of the de: enc ants. If the Marshal is unable to effect service of the summons and complaint upon a defendant within 120 days after the filing of the complaint through no fault of his own (for example, because you failed to provide sufficient information about the defendant or because the defendant is not where you claim), your action will be dismissed as to that defendant without prejudice under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(m). This order does not relieve the court of its continuing obligation to dismiss the case if the court determines that the allegation of poverty is untrue, or that the action is frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim on which relief may be granted or seeks monetary relief against a defendant who is immune from such relief.

  [ ] DENIED and the plaintiff(s) shall pay the filing fee of $150.00 [or make a partial payment of $___] no later than 30 days from the date of this order. Failure to pay the filing fee by that date will result in dismissal of the action without prejudice. The clerk shall provide plaintiff(s) a copy of Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. It is your responsibility to obtain a summons from the clerk and to effect service of the summons and complaint in accordance with Rule 4 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Failure to do so will result in dismissal of your case. This order does not relieve the court of its continuing obligation to dismiss the case if the court determines that the allegation of poverty is untrue, or that the action is frivolous or malicious, fails to state a claim on which relief may be granted or seeks monetary relief against a defendant who is immune from such relief. [X] DENIED and the action is DISMISSED pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B) based on the court's determination that the action
