August 15, 2011
JOHN CHARLES JACKSON, PLAINTIFF,
FEDERAL CORRECTIONAL INSTITUTION, HERLONG, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a federal prisoner proceeding without counsel, filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, together with an unsigned request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure require all documents to be signed by litigants. Id. Also, plaintiff has not included a certified copy of his prison trust account statement for the six month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Therefore, plaintiff will be provided the opportunity to submit a signed application form and a certified copy of his prison trust account statement.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall submit, within thirty days from the date of this order, a signed application to proceed in forma pauperis with a certified copy of his prison trust account statement for the six month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint. Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice; and
2. The clerk of the court shall send plaintiff an application to proceed in forma pauperis by a prisoner.
