IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 14, 2010
ESTHER COHN, PLAINTIFF,
BANK OF AMERICA, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
FINDINGS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Plaintiff, who is proceeding without counsel and has not paid the fee ordinarily required to file an action in this court, previously filed an incomplete application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). (See Dkt. No. 2). Because the incomplete application prevented the court from properly evaluating whether plaintiff should be granted leave to proceed in forma pauperis, the undersigned granted plaintiff twenty-one days within which to either: (1) file a completed application to proceed in forma pauperis, or (2) file the appropriate initial filing fee of $350.00. (Order, Dkt. No. 3, May 10, 2010.) Plaintiff did not submit a completed application or the appropriate initial filing fee.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY RECOMMENDED that:
1. Plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis be denied; and
2. Plaintiff be provided twenty-one days within which to pay the initial filing fee of $350.00. Failure to timely pay the filing fee will result in a recommendation that this matter be dismissed.
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 fourteen days after being served with these findings and recommendations, any party may file written objections with the court and serve a copy on all parties. Id.; see also Local Rule 304(b). Such a 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 the District Court's order. Turner v. Duncan, 158 F.3d 449, 455 (9th Cir. 1998); Martinez v. Ylst, 951 F.2d 1153, 1156-57 (9th Cir. 1991).
