April 22, 2010
DENNIS J. MERRIDA, PLAINTIFF,
COUNTY OF SOLANO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 together with a request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff has not submitted his in forma pauperis request on a proper form.
Plaintiff's request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis will be denied, and plaintiff will be granted thirty days to submit a new request on a proper form. Plaintiff is cautioned that the form includes a section that must be completed by a prison official, and the application form must be accompanied by a certified copy of plaintiff's prison trust account statement for the six-month period immediately preceding the filing of this action.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff's March 10, 2010, request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis (Docket No. 4) is denied without prejudice;
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; and
3. Plaintiff shall submit, within thirty days from the date of this order, a properly completed application to proceed in forma pauperis on the form provided with this order; 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.
