IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
February 29, 2012
ALTON E. DEAN, PLAINTIFF,
WONG, ET AL., DEFENDANT.
Plaintiff is a state prisoner proceeding without counsel in an action brought under 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This proceeding was referred to this court by Local Rule 302 pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 636(b)(1) and is before the undersigned pursuant to plaintiff's consent. See 28 U.S.C. § 636; see also E.D. Cal. Local Rules, Appx. A, at (k)(4). On November 30, 2011, the court found that plaintiff was not entitled to proceed in forma pauperis, denied his application to so proceed and directed him to pay the filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914. The order gave plaintiff 30 days to pay the required fee and warned him that failure to do so may result in this action being dismissed. The 30-day period has expired and plaintiff has not paid the filing fee. Instead, plaintiff again requested leave to proceed in forma pauperis and appointment of counsel.
The court denied those motions on December 20, 2011. Dckt. Nos. 21, 22, 23.
Accordingly, this action is dismissed without prejudice.
