IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 21, 2009
JOSEPH A. SHERMAN, PLAINTIFF,
CA. COMMISSION ON TEACHER CREDENTIALING CHAIR CALEB CHEUNG, 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). Plaintiff seeks leave to proceed in this action in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. §1915, and has submitted a one-paragraph affidavit in support of this request. See Dckt. No. 1, at p. 6. However, plaintiff's affidavit does not contain all of the information necessary for this court to make a determination. The court will therefore defer consideration of plaintiff's request (and screening of plaintiff's complaint) pending timely receipt of an amended application to proceed in forma pauperis .
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of Court shall, with service of this order, send plaintiff a blank application to proceed in forma pauperis;
2. Plaintiff shall file the completed application to proceed in forma pauperis within thirty days of the filing date of this order; and,
3. Failure of plaintiff timely to submit a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
