IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
January 23, 2012
PAUL NOAH SPOHN, PLAINTIFF,
MAX MUCKLOW, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff, a county inmate 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 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. However, the certificate portion of the in forma pauperis application has not been filled out and signed by an authorized official. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Although plaintiff has explained that jail officials have refused to complete the certificate portion of his application, plaintiff will be ordered to re-submit the in forma pauperis application to jail officials for completion and to show jail officials this court order. Alternatively, plaintiff may submit a certified copy of his trust account statement for the six-month period preceding the filing of his civil rights action.
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. The Clerk of the Court shall provide plaintiff with another copy of the in forma pauperis application used by this court; and
2. Within thirty days from the date of this order, plaintiff shall submit a fully completed in forma pauperis application with the certificate portion completed and signed by the authorized jail official, or a certified copy of his inmate trust account statement for the six-month period preceding the filing of this action. Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice.
