IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 17, 2009
BRIAN JOSEPH STOLTIE, PLAINTIFF,
JANETTA GERINGSON, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
On March 4, 2009, the court denied plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis without prejudice and granted him thirty days leave to file a completed application that includes a certified copy of plaintiff's prison trust account statement for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint in this action and a prison official's certification. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2).
On April 13, 2009, the court received a letter, purportedly from plaintiff's mother, explaining that plaintiff was recently hospitalized and will need additional time to comply with the court's order. Good cause appearing, the court will construe the letter as a request for an extension of time to file a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's April 13, 2009 request for an extension of time (Doc. No. 15) is granted;
2. Plaintiff is granted thirty days from the date of this order in which to file an application to proceed in forma pauperis.
