The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiffs, who are proceeding pro se, bring this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983.*fn1 Plaintiff David E. Edwards has submitted an application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis by a state prisoner. Plaintiff Jonathan Edwards has not submitted an application to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the required filing fee. Plaintiff David E.

See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a), 1915(a), (a)(2). Plaintiffs will be provided the opportunity to submit either a completed application as to plaintiff David E. Edwards and an application for a non-prisoner as to plaintiff Jonathan Edwards, or pay the appropriate filing fee. If plaintiffs wish to proceed in forma pauperis, they must both submit completed applications. Plaintiffs are warned that failure to resolve the fee status of this case within the time provided may result in the dismissal of this action for lack of prosecution and failure to comply with court rules and orders. See Local Rule 11-110.
