IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
April 17, 2012
CARLOS HENDON, PLAINTIFF,
WILLIAM E. KULKA, ET AL., DEFENDANTS.
Plaintiff, a prisoner without counsel, has filed a complaint alleging civil rights violations pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. To proceed with a civil action a plaintiff must pay the $350 filing fee required by 28 U.S.C. § 1914(a) or request leave to proceed in forma pauperis and submit a properly completed affidavit and trust account statement required by 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a). Plaintiff has submitted an application and trust account statement, but the documents submitted are over six years old, bearing a date of April 2006.
Section 1915(a)(2) requires "a prisoner seeking to bring a civil action without prepayment of fees or security therefor, in addition to filing the affidavit filed under paragraph
(1), shall submit a certified copy of the trust fund account statement (or institutional equivalent) for the prisoner for the 6-month period immediately preceding the filing of the complaint . . . , obtained from the appropriate official of each prison at which the prisoner is or was confined."
Accordingly, plaintiff has 30 days from the date of service of this order to submit either the filing fee or a properly completed and timely application required by § 1915(a). The Clerk of the Court is directed to mail to plaintiff a form application for leave to proceed in forma pauperis. Failure to comply with this order will result in a recommendation that this action be dismissed.
