CHAD A. WARD, PLAINTIFF,
HIGH DESERT STATE PRISON MAIL ROOM, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Gregory G. Hollows United States Magistrate Judge
Plaintiff, a state prisoner proceeding pro se, has filed a civil rights action pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983. This case is before the undersigned pursuant to plaintiff's consent. Doc. 3. Plaintiff has not, however, filed an in forma pauperis affidavit or paid the required filing fee. See 28 U.S.C. §§ 1914(a), 1915(a). On April 26, 2012, plaintiff was provided thirty days either to submit the appropriate affidavit in support of a request to proceed in forma pauperis or to submit the appropriate filing fee. That time period has now expired, and plaintiff has not filed an application to proceed in forma pauperis or paid the filing fee or otherwise responded to the court's order.*fn1 \\\\\
