IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 21, 2012
BRADY K. ARMSTRONG, PLAINTIFF,
D. YOUNG, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Kendall J. Newman United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. On January 27, 2012, plaintiff was directed to pay the filing fee or submit an application to proceed in forma pauperis. Plaintiff has now filed a signed request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915, and provided a certified trust account statement. However, plaintiff did not obtain the certification required on the application form. See 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(2). Therefore, plaintiff will be provided the opportunity to submit the completed certificate portion of the application. (Dkt. No. 7 at 2.)
In accordance with the above, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that:
1. Plaintiff shall submit, within thirty days from the date of this order, the completed certificate portion of the application form. (Dkt. No. 7 at 2.) Plaintiff's failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed without prejudice.
2. The Clerk of the Court is directed to send plaintiff a new Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis By a Prisoner.
