IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 23, 2009
BERNARD STEPPE, PLAINTIFF,
LISA STOWE, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
This case, in which plaintiff proceeds in propria persona, was referred to the undersigned pursuant to E. D. Cal. L. R. ("Local Rule") 72-302(c)(21), and 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1).
Although plaintiff has filed the initial complaint, plaintiff has neither paid the fee nor submitted an application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. To proceed with a civil action a plaintiff must pay the $350 filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) or request leave to proceed in forma pauperis and submit the affidavit required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a).
Accordingly, plaintiff has 30 days from the date of service of this order to submit either the filing fee or the application required by § 1915(a). The Clerk of Court is directed to mail to plaintiff a form application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
