IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
December 22, 2009
JOSEPH STANLEY, PLAINTIFF,
DEUEL VOCATIONAL INSTITUTION MEDICAL FACILITY, DEFENDANT.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding pro se with a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On December 8, 2009, plaintiff was directed to submit a properly completed in forma pauperis application form. In response to the court's order, plaintiff has filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
Plaintiff's in forma pauperis application does not include 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. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). In the interest of justice, however, the court will grant plaintiff an additional thirty days to file a properly completed in forma pauperis application form.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall submit, within thirty days from the date of this order a properly completed in forma pauperis 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; plaintiff is cautioned that failure to comply with this order or seek an extension of time to do so will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice; and
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis By a Prisoner for use in a civil rights action.
