DEANNA GANGSTEE, PLAINTIFF
COUNTY OF SACRAMENTO, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff, who is proceeding with counsel in a civil rights action, 42 U.S.C. § 1983, has timely filed a notice of appeal from the judgment dated January 12, 2012 granting the defendants' motion for summary judgment on claims one through four of plaintiff's complaint. She has also filed a motion to proceed in forma pauperis.
Rule 24(a)(1) of the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure provides that a party to a district court action who desires to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal must file a motion in the district court which:
(A) shows in the detail prescribed by Form 4 of the Appendix of Forms the party's inability to pay or to give security for fees and costs;
(B) claims an entitlement to redress; and
(C) states the issues that the party intends to present on appeal.
Fed. R. App. P. 24(a)(1). Plaintiff has demonstrated her inability to pay but has not otherwise complied with the rule.
Accordingly, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that petitioner's motion to proceed in forma pauperis on appeal (ECF No. 59) is denied without prejudice.
