IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 2, 2010
VANCE BLAINE, PLAINTIFF,
DUCAN, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Craig M. Kellison United States Magistrate Judge
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Plaintiff, a prisoner proceeding pro se, brings this civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. Pending before the court is plaintiff's request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 2). Plaintiff's declaration fails to make the showing required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Specifically, plaintiff's in forma pauperis application reflects an average monthly balance over the past six months of $40,664.47. The court, therefore, is unable to find that plaintiff is indigent and cannot pre-pay the $350.00 filing fee for this action.
Based on the foregoing, the undersigned recommends that plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Doc. 2) be denied.
These findings and recommendations are submitted to the United States District Judge assigned to the case, pursuant to the provisions of 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(l). Within 20 days after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written objections with the court. The document should be captioned "Objections to Magistrate Judge's Findings and Recommendations." Failure to file objections within the specified time may waive the right to appeal. See Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153 (9th Cir. 1991).
