UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 17, 2009
PAMELA STICKLER, PLAINTIFF,
V. MARRIOTT, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Irma E. Gonzalez, Chief Judge United States District Court
ORDER: (1) DENYING AS MOOT PLAINTIFF'S MOTION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS (Doc. No. 16); and (2) GRANTING PLAINTIFF LEAVE TO AMEND PURSUANT ORDER. TO THE COURT'S JULY 28, 2009
Presently before the Court is Plaintiff Pamela Stickler's Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis, received by the Court on December 11, 2009 and filed nunc pro tunc on December 14, 2009. (Doc. No. 16.)
On June 9, 2009, Plaintiff filed a complaint against Marriot, apparently alleging her civil rights were violated. (Doc. No. 1.) On June 19, 2009, the Court dismissed the action for failure to pay the statutorily-required filing fee. (Doc. No. 5.)
Subsequently, Plaintiff filed a Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis. (Doc. No. 6.) In the Court's July 28, 2009 Order, the Court granted Plaintiff's motion, but sua sponte dismissed the complaint without prejudice as frivolous and for failure to state a claim, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(e)(2)(B). (Doc. No. 10.) The Court granted Plaintiff thirty (30) days from the date the Order was filed to file a First Amended Complaint addressing the deficiencies of the pleading set forth in the Order. The Court mailed the July 29, 2009 Order to Plaintiff at the address listed with the Court -"General Delivery, Chula Vista, CA 91910-9999" - but the mail was returned as undeliverable.*fn1 (Doc. No. 14.)
On December 11, 2009, the Court received the Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis presently before the Court and ordered it to be filed nunc pro tunc. (Doc. No. 16.) Plaintiff's motion lists her new address as: 4101 30th St. #B, San Diego, CA 92104.
Because the Court granted Plaintiff's previous motion to proceed in forma pauperis in the July 28, 2009 Order, the Court DENIES AS MOOT the motion to proceed in forma pauperis presently before the Court.
Additionally, because it appears that Plaintiff may not have received the July 28, 2009 Order sua sponte dismissing the case with leave to amend, the Court GRANTS Plaintiff an additional thirty (30) days from the filing date of this Order to file a First Amended Complaint addressing the deficiencies of the pleading set forth in the July 28, 2009 Order. Plaintiff is cautioned that her First Amended Complaint must be complete in itself, without relying on references to the Original Complaint. Plaintiff is further cautioned that any defendant not named or claim not re-alleged will be considered waived. See King v. Attiyeh, 814 F.3d 1172, 1177-79 (9th Cir. 1996).
The Clerk shall mail a copy of this Order and the July 28, 2009 Order to Plaintiff's new address at 4101 30th St. #B, San Diego, CA 92104.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
