IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
October 20, 2011
BILLY RAY MALDONADO,
JAMES YATES, ET AL.,
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gary S. Austin United States Magistrate Judge
ORDER TO SUBMIT SIGNED APPLICATION TO PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS OR PAY FILING FEE WITHIN THIRTY (30) DAYS
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983, together with an application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915 and a certified copy of his prison trust account statement. However, plaintiff's application to proceed in forma pauperis was deficient because it did not include plaintiff's required original signature. Each document submitted for filing must include the original signature of the filing party or parties. Local Rule 131; F.R.C.P. 11(a).
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
Within thirty (30) days of the date of service of this order, plaintiff shall re-submit the enclosed application to proceed in forma pauperis, with plaintiff's original signature, or in the alternative, pay the $350.00 filing fee for this action. Plaintiff is not required to submit another certified copy of his prison trust account statement.
Failure to comply with this order will result in dismissal of this action.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
